Have the car towed to the dealership and let THEM fgure out what the wheel lock not adaptor it takes. You can always go to an auto parts store to find out what OEM adaptor it takes. They would have cross reference books to tell you this and would have or be able to get it for you. You need to do a little work to make this work. Ask the auto parts store, even of you have to walk there to find out.

SOURCE: cant find reasonably priced auto locking hub for full size bronco

thats because they are all really expensive and not worth the $. most bronco owners including myself replace them with a set of Warn manual hubs. they will last 10x as long and 1/3 the price.

SOURCE: 2003 Ford Focus ZX5 Steering Wheel

All you need is two inexpensive things to fix this. 1. Hammer and 2. WD-40. First, put the key in the ignition and tap it with the hammer. (this should unlock the steering wheel and the iginition) Second, spray some WD-40 in the key opening on the ignition, then put the key in again and proceed to tap it some more with the hammer. (WHEN I SAY TAP THE HAMMER I DO NOT MEAN HIT IT WITH FULL FORCE)... Any who keep put WD-40 and tapping it until you can turn the key without the help of the hammer... (should be at least 4 times) THE PROBLEM IS THAT WITH TIME DEBRI BUILDS UP IN THE IGNITION, AND THIS CAUSES THE STEERING TO LOCK UP WHEN YOU PLACE THE KEY IN THE IGNITION. THE HAMMER UNLOCKS THE SPRINGS IN THE IGNITION AND THE WD-40 CONVERTS THE DEBRI TO LIQUID SO IT CAN CLEAN THE IGNITION...

SOURCE: lost locking weel nut with a puncture how do i change it???

You could try using vice-grips, if the nut is not too tight.

This might do a bit of damage to the nut, but you can easily purchase a new nut once you have the tire changed.

SOURCE: Ford Focus: Displaying "Locked 13". Bought the car

Give this a try. If your radio has a button AR or AS, when the ignition key is off, press and hold the AR or AS button throughout this process. Then turn on your ignition.

Press button 1 repeatively until the first digit of your radio code is displayed, do this for the second digit with button 2, the third digit with button 3 and the fourth digit with button 4. When all numbers are showing on the screen push button 5. This should reset the unit.

If the button fails to reset do not keep repeating the process or it will say Forever locked. There are several models and forever is not always what it means. To get your Code there is a site called Fordcodes.com and for $6.99 they will email it.

There is a Code reprogrammer called an E13. A technician or radio shop would need this tool to recover your radio to make it work. If you use your Browser you will see many questions but few answers for this problem except to take the radio in. If you are lucky to have the model of radio which can be reset by this procedure it will eliminate the trip.

I hope this works out for you, the success depends on the series of the radio.

My back right tire is wobbling what can cause it


loose wheel nuts. Check tightness of wheel nuts or if you are not mechanically inclined go to a tyre store and get them to check if you have missing wheel nuts or loose wheel nuts. Preferrably before the wheel comes off later on while you are driving down the road. (Happened 30 years ago to my father)
other possible things to consider
badly worn tyre
under inflated tyres
faulty shock absorbers.
bent tyre rim

My Mercedes clk 230 komp has an issue withe the front passenger wheel. when pulling away on full lock right, its like the tyre is running on flat and it starts to knock. everything seems ok wheel bearing...


wheel bearings should have no play at all The correct adjustment is no preload -no end float with the adjustment nut moved slightly to preload to fit the pin.
It is happening on full lock ,check the full lock stop as the tyre may be hitting on the suspension or inner guard.

How do I change a tire on 2010 Routan?


place the hand brake on firmly--chock other wheels . loosen off the wheel nuts . jack the vehicle up finish removing the wheel nuts . pull the wheel of the studs . fit replacement spare wheel onto studs . do wheel nuts up as tight as possible . lower jack so that the wheel is on the ground . finish tightening the wheel nuts . Replace the jack and wrench in the boot along with the flat tyre . Take the flat tyre to a tyre shop for a puncture repair and have it fixed immediately. Most "people" leave the repair to a later time when they will need a spare that they do not have .The tyre change process is fully described in the owners hand book for your vehicle.

Rear wheelbearings keeps on humming. this is the third set in a year. whe have fitted new locknuts, is there a spesific torque on the bearings, and is there anything i can do to reduce the noise


how tight do you have these???torque?? never heard of tourquing wheel bearing nuts...all we ever did was put the bearings in the wheel hub..mount it on the axle shaft..rotate the hub while tightening the first nut by hand until thers no slop in the hub(it does not shake on the axle shaft) it turns firmly and smoothly.then put the star nut and cotter lock pin on.. (older cars) if youre torquing these thats putting those new bearings in a bind.. heating them up and making them fail due to excessive heat and wear..are the bearing surfaces gualded now? the whole assembly is damaged and total replacement is required..I hate to say this at the risk of making you mad.. but seriously if you dont know what you are doing exactly.. get some guidance from your parts store they can give you specific instructions on these proceedures and if torquing is called for it will be in/on thoise instructions..

I have a 1984 LTD with locking hubs on the tires. The key is lost how do i get the hub off?


hammer and chisel is only way now ,try hammering an old socket over the locking wheel nut,also some motor factors sell a special kit for this job but they are only sold to the trade for obvious reasons so ask in a local tyre shop as they may have some

I have a 2001 ford escort zx2 and it seems as if the front wheels wobble at speed at or under 30 mph. The faster you go the wobble disappears. Is this the wheel bearing, loose lug nuts, or u-joint?


If the wobble is very noticeable at low speed I would first suspect the tyre or tyres. Start by changing each front tyre with the spare and see if that affects the symptoms.
I am assuming that you have checked that the wheel nuts are not loose?
I hope I have been of help but please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.

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 locking weel nut with a puncture how do i change it???


Depending on locking nut type.
If it's like mine, having a recessed "clover leaf channel" then you can only weld something to it like a bolt, if its an alternative nut type I.E. star or some other shape with edges, you can hammer a cheap socket over it and try that.(once the socket is shaped you can usually remve the rest and replace with new ones)
