    Default Snapped Wheel Bolt

    I had the car servied this week ready to go to Le Mans....Today I went to swap the 17" wheels to the 19s, One bolt wouldn't come out, I called Andy.l who dropped in in a flash armed with a big wrench...10 seconds later..PING!

    I spoke to a garage mate and Mark. I've driven down to Hertfordshire today on 4 bolts.I don't think I'll risk taking it to France though

    I have the service paper work here and step 20 something says loosen the wheel bolts and retighten. 4 bolts were loose and one was cross threaded Thing is I can't proove they've ballsed up!

    Mark was going to sort it for me on Monday when I get back, but I've found out our itinery won't get us back to Hertsfordshire till late on Monday and I have to be in scotland on Tuesday!

    Why should you be worried ? 4 bolts is good enough IMO. Can't really understand why they need 5 anyway !
    Now get your a55 to Le Mans and enjoy yourself !


    Have consideration for the deaf, if you're gunna fart, make it smell !
