    ref to your locking wheel nut key, you should not have a problem if you do not let anyone overtighten your bolts!!, ie tyre fitters or workshops, do them your self or insist they do not use air tools to tighten them, 110nm is roughly the correct amount, i always use a torque wrench to this spec and have no prob from new to date 5 yrs on??

    If you take the engine cover off, and look down behind the fuel rail you will see it - either sitting there doing nothing or it will be fixed to the links like it should.
