    Ive just taken my wheel off to check the hub abs connectors and have now put the wheel back on. But aint got a clue how much to tighten the nuts. All ive used is the basic wrench that was bundled with the spare wheel in the boot. Im now really worried because i need to drive he car.

    The garage that changed the brakes tightened the nuts sooooo much that i had to stamp my foot on the wrench so much to open the nuts.

    One nut got damaged too, so i have not put it back on. Will it be dangerous to drive wih just 4 nuts? Can i pick it up from halfords?

    Thanks

    Tighten the wheel nuts (well actually wheel bolts on the Vectra C, actually but everyone seems to call them nuts) to 110 Nm.

    Argos do a cheap torque wrench that will do the job as long as you have a 1/2" drive 17 MM socket to use with it - or buy something like this if you haven't (handy to keep in your car boot and you can use the included double-ended socket with the torque wrench).

    The basic bundled wrench is so short it's quite hard to over-tighten the wheel nuts - and also a real pain to undo ones that some air-gun monkey at a garage did up far too tight (don't use that garage again - or tell them to do it properly if you do), hence why an extending wrench like the one linked above can be a good idea to keep in the car.

    I personally wouldn't drive a car with a wheel nut missing. If you have locking wheel nuts on alloy wheels, you should have 4 surplus wheel nuts somewhere - use one of these or it's off to the dealer to get some more. I can't see Halfords doing standard wheel nuts, although they do locking ones of you don't already have them and want a set.

Basically having trouble taking the connector apart and don't know what to do with the connections at the hub end, not sure if they are supposed to disconnect. Anyways, is all explained in the pm. Thanks pal

    All sorted then - and for free too. Garages sometimes seem a bit keen to go straight for replacement wheel hubs without checking the wheel speed wiring connectors first. I guess they generally don't leak/corrode on most cars so they don't think to check them on early Vectra C's.
