    Default Stripped my locking nut :(

    Was replacing my drop links today and did one side no probs. Went to the other side and couldnt get the wheel off. 4 studs came out easy but the locking one just wouldnt budge. Ended up rounding the locking nut and still it wouldnt budge. Managed to replace the drop link with the wheel still on (I know - it surprised me too) but now I cant get the wheel off. Got new tyres in Jan and KF must have put ALL the studs and the locking nut with the air gun.

    So now I need a new locking key (I have the number). Does anyone know what this might cost me - and how long will it take?

    Will then go back to KF and get them to slacken teh locking nuts so I can put them on by hand myself.

    that's the plan for this week.. i have a screw in my tyre as well, i had to screw it in deeper so that it will not snag and and come out and deflate the tyre.. I now it is possible to buy a replacement set of nuts and socket from the bay for £25.. Problem was my neighbour had kindly torqued them up to 100nm for me which has caused this issue.. so now i just want shot of this set and to get a new fresh set once i get them off..
