Question about 2002 Ford SVT Focus
I had a flat tyre at the weekend but have no locking wheel nut. i contacted ford who can supply another for a reasonable price only if i can give them the wheel number beginning 8309xxxx i bought the car in october 07 and have been through all through the paperwork and all over the car but cannot find the number. have you any ideas where i can find this number to save me the expense of having all the locks replaced?
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.

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.

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...

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.

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.
