    Wheel Fell Off

    Driving along a busy road yetsterday to go to my oldmans yard to do a few bits to my car to get it though the MOT and all of a sudden the wheel started shaking so though s#@t sumits wrong so slowed down to about 20mph (first though the drive shaft had poped out)

    then bout 50 yards on went to turn into my oldmans drive and clunk the car hits the ground slides along and my passanger front wheel goes boming it off up the road?! pretty scary and dunno what happened!!!

    anyways no1 was hurt just the car...!! gota get 2 the scrap yard after work and hope and pray i can get a wing in the same colour because i am ment to be selling the car friday Always happens @ the worst times!!

    What actually snapped/broke/gave way????

    Cos ft it's the wheel bolts they give a fair bit of warning that all four are on there way out - they rarely just undo on thier own (instantly). I know I have it happen to me, but sorrted it well before they came right out

    But it didn't really, did it? Because if you were going 70MPH then that would have been a much worser time! So think of it that way...
