You have to call the manufacturer and give the the number on the lugnut and they will sell you another. about $25. Been there done that. Another option is to buy a socket that you hammer onto the lugnut. It grips the lugnut and you can then use a ratchet to get it off. you do have to replace the lugnuts after doing this. the socket was $8 at Oriellys.

My jag was purchased used and there is no key for the wheel locks. I need help in finding out who manufactured the locks. Dealer does not know.


It will be cheaper to go to a tyre shop where any good outlet has special tools to destructively remove locking wheel nuts without the key. Then just buy a new set of locking wheel nuts to replace them with. Even if you knew who manufactured them you'd need the pattern number and proof of ownership and you'd find that a spare key often costs more than a complete new set of locking nuts.

You can buy so called "universal" locking wheel nut removers yourself quite cheaply on ebay, but they often fail to work and can damage your wheels and then leave the nut far harder to remove using the correct and expensive trade-only tools.

What wrench is needed to remove the 2002 GTI lug nuts?


they are the locking wheel nuts(lugs)and you will need a key(not a hex allen key)to remove them.if you look close you will see that the sides are not equal.
I use a nut spilitter or an old socket hammered onto the nut to remove it,means replacements but next time you buy a car check to make sure you have the radio code and the wheel nut key.

Replacing tie rods for a 2000 ford escort ZX2


The tie rod ends are at the inner wheel of your steering rack.

Loosen the road wheel and jack up the car, then put the car on an axle stand.

Now remove the wheel.

There is a locking nut on the steering arm locking the tie rod. Slacken this nut and replace it finger tight.

Undo the nut holding the tie rod to the hub assembly.

Using a ball joint splitting tool, loosen the tie rod ball joint and lift it clear from the hub assembly.

Now unscrew the tie rod and count how many full turns it takes to come of the steering arm.

Refitting is the reverse of the dismantling proceedure. However count the turns as you put on the tie rod, the same way as you did when you took it off.

When all the work is done. You will have to get the tracking checked out by your local tyre centre.

Lost my lock in nut


Assuming you mean key, is it OEM Ford or aftermarket? Do you know the brand if aftermarket? Do you know the lock number? Replacement keys can be ordered from the aftermarket manufacture. Ford's locks are make by an aftermarket manufacture, but the might use different part numbers. If OEM, bring it to the dealer for match up if possible.

Removing a locking wheel nut from my toyota car


you need to get the wheel lugnut wrench out of the trunk or under the hood and take off the wheel cover nuts (the plastic ones you can turn by hand) Then you should have access to your wheel locks...
