TUERCAS DE BLOQUEO DE LAS RUEDAS

NOTES

Not all vehicles have locking wheel nuts as standard part.

CAUTION

The locking wheel nut adaptor must be correctly aligned and fully fitted to the locking wheel nut before usage. Incorrect fitment can result in permanent damage to the locking wheel nut adaptor. Incorrect fitment can cause the locking wheel nut’s anti-tamper device to rotate, preventing removal of the locking wheel nut. If in doubt, contact a retailer/authorised repairer.

CAUTION

Do not use air tools or power tools to remove or to refit the locking wheel nut. Doing so may damage the locking wheel nut or the locking wheel nut adaptor.

NOTES

Locking wheel nuts can be removed and fitted using only the special locking wheel nut adaptor provided. See CAMBIO DE UNA RUEDA.

To release the locking wheel nut:

  1. Fit the locking wheel nut adaptor onto the locking wheel nut. Make sure that the locking wheel nut adaptor fully engages.

  2. Locate the wheel brace over the locking wheel nut adaptor. Unscrew the wheel nut half a turn counter-clockwise.

  3. After raising the vehicle on the jack, remove the locking wheel nut.

NOTES

When the vehicle is first supplied, the locking wheel nut adaptor may be stored in the glovebox. If this is the case, the locking wheel nut adaptor must be moved to its correct storage position in the luggage compartment, as soon as possible. See CAMBIO DE UNA RUEDA.

The locking wheel nut and locking wheel nut adaptor contain two anti-tamper features.

If the locking wheel nut adaptor is forced onto the locking wheel nut, the adaptor may be damaged beyond repair.

If the locking wheel nut adaptor is not fully engaged, the cap on the locking wheel nut rotates. To allow the locking wheel nut to be fully tightened or removed, the locking wheel nut cap must be reset.

The locking wheel nut cap can be reset as follows:

  1. Carefully fit the locking wheel nut adaptor onto the locking wheel nut cap. Rotate the cap.

  2. Rotate the cap until all of the grooves on the cap align exactly with the locking wheel nut grooves.

NOTES

A code number is stamped on the locking wheel nut adaptor. Depending on the specification and type of adaptor, a card with the code number may also be supplied. If a replacement locking wheel nut adaptor is required, quote this code number. For convenience, record the code number below:
