Well then, if anyone here needs a little help removing locking wheel nuts it seems Halfords and motorists discount centres now sell a handy tool for removing them.
Its a couple of universal fit sockets that are threaded on the inside and you sort of push it onto the offending nut and just keep on undoing until it bites hard enough to undo the offending nut/bolt.
The product is a “LASER - Locking Wheel nut remover, Part number 3291”
However, if you have a Ford Galaxy, VW Sharan, or Seat Alhambra and possibly any other VW I’ve found a shockingly easy way to undo the security bolts.
I’m sure this knowledge will be common amongst those who sell lots of second hand alloys but I still wont post it here in full.
If TPR Regulars find them selves stuck, drop me a PM and I will explain.
I might sell the information on Ebay just to annoy Ford since they lost the flaming key when it was being serviced and wanted to charge me for removal and supply of new bolts :rolleyes:
