LOCKING LUG NUTS

NOTES

When the vehicle is first supplied, the lug nut adapter may be stored in the glovebox. If this is the case, the lug nut adapter must be moved to its correct storage position, as soon as possible. See TOOL KIT.

NOTES

Not all vehicles have locking lug nuts as standard parts.

CAUTION

The locking lug nut adapter must be correctly aligned and fully fitted to the locking lug nut before usage. Incorrect fitment can result in permanent damage to the locking lug nut adapter.

CAUTION

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

Locking lug nuts can be removed and fitted using only the special adapter provided. See TOOL KIT.

To release the locking lug nut:

  1. Fit the locking lug nut adapter onto the locking lug nut. Make sure that the locking lug nut adapter fully engages.

    CAUTION

    If the locking lug nut adapter is forced onto the locking lug nut, the adapter may be damaged beyond repair.

  2. Locate the lug wrench over the locking lug nut adapter. Unscrew the lug nut by half a turn counter-clockwise.

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

NOTES

Should a replacement locking lug nut adapter be required, consult an authorized retailer. It is advised to make a note of the locking lug nut adapter code number to allow a replacement to be sourced, if ever required. Depending upon the specification of the locking lug nut adapter, the code may be stamped on the locking lug nut adapter or supplied on a separate card.
