RADSICHERUNGEN

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

Not all vehicles have locking wheel nuts as standard parts.

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.

Locking wheel nuts can be removed and fitted using only the special locking wheel nut adaptor provided. See RADWECHSEL.

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 RADWECHSEL.

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

If the locking wheel nut adaptor is forced on to 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 on to the locking wheel nut cap and rotate the cap.

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

NOTES

Should a replacement locking wheel nut adaptor be required, consult your authorised dealer. For your convenience and future reference, record the locking wheel nut adaptor code within the space provided below. Depending on the specification of the locking wheel nut adaptor, the code may be stamped on the locking wheel nut adaptor or supplied on a separate card.
