    Thumbs up Locking Wheel Nut Removal

    Joined the forum a few weeks ago and it quickly became obvious that GSI 3.2 was the man in the know regarding removal when no key was available.

    Anyway PM'd him for some advise as it's obviously a sensitive subject. Once he realsied I was quite local he said he would take a look.

    So tonight on the way home from work popped into see him. After a quick look he said they were different from the VX ones he had removed before. Anyway he set about the task and 5mins later all 4 were removed and I'm one happy chappy.

    Just shows the benefit of joining the forum.

    So just wanted to say a big thanks to Mark.

    Not quite as early as you Mark, but early enough

    1. Get into work
    2. Switch on computer
    3. make coffee
    4. Have 1/2 hour or so on here before everyone else turns up
