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.

What are the torque settings for a 99 jetta rear wheel bearing?


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.

Why does front passenger wheel wiggle when jacked up on 99 lincoln continental


You could have a worn out wheel bearing.
OR
The wheel bearing lock nut has come loose because the split pin is missing. this split pin prevents the lock nut from becoming loose.

Trying to change a tire on my volkswagen jetta but on one of the nuts it has some kind of key lock on it. where can i find a tool to change my tire ?


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.

Hope this helps and please vote me up, thanks.

My 96 jetta gl speedomator and that whole thing doesnt work, the emergency brake doesnt barely hold up either, i could drive with it up and it wouldn't make a difference, i got the codes P0140, P0141,...


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.

Wheel lock key


As long as you know the key number, go back to your dealer.

If you don't know the number then you will have to get them all removed by professional ie the dealer or a tyre centre and buy a new set of bolts/nuts.
