Re: wheel lock nut & bolt stripped...how can i fix this...
YES YOU CAN BUY NEW LUG NUTS AND KEYS AT ANY AUTO PARTS STORE. THE ONLY PROBLEM I CAN SEE IS GETTING THE OLD LUG OFF. AS FAR AS THAT GOES, JUST BE AS CAREFUL AS POSSIBLE NOT TO STRIP IT OUT ANY MORE THAN IT ALREADY IS.

disconnect both battery terminals let everything power down for 10min remove key and lock steering.remove airbag then steering wheel the stalks and clock spring then top and bottom column covers.next lower dash cover loosen and remove bolt and nut at knuckle where column and rack connects.unplug all sensors of column then undo securing bolts
Snug them up, then back them off about two increments where the cotter pin goes in. Wheel should spin freely. If not back nut off.Take a short test drive, a km or so. Feel the wheels in the center, warm is normal, but not hot. If hot back the nut off.
The last owner of the car should have given you the locking wheel nut key. It is a safety measure to stop people stealing wheels.
They can be removed, but as long as you can prove it is your car, a garage/auto shop can take these nuts off, but you have to prove ownership. You can also ask the company who makes the nut for a replacement key but again, they need to make sure you own the car.
take off rear hub u have a inner and outter bearing ..change bearing dont forget to pack new bearing well with a GAA Bearing Grease...and install wheel and tighten middle nut till wheel is tight...then back it off enough that wheel turn but not too freely about half a turn back....GL
To fix the E brake you have to take the cover off that surrounds the brake lever and behind it is a nut on a cable attached to two other cables with a single nut is your adjuster, tighten it up till the handle is about half way up to fully lock the rear wheels. If the adjuster is all the way back and still can't hold the car then your rear brakes are worn out, replace asap. As for your codes just call up any vdub dealer and ask them to tell you what the codes mean.
