Currenly on my 04 astra I have and an alloy wheel locking nut that has been air gunned up to tight or has been cross threaded. I have tried all the usual methods to get this removed and have been through 3 locking wheel nut keys. We have tried drilling it, using expensive removal kits etc etc to no joy, the thing is just stuck solid. Garages just keep telling me there is nothing they can do.
The final straw is now to remove the other 4 bolts and take an angle grinder to the wheel and leave me with just the bolt stuck out and then hopefully I can remove it while having more access to it.
Anyone think this is a good or bad idea?????????
I really am at a loss of what else to try next
I have a replacment wheel and tyre ready to go on no problem, at the moment I have approx 3mm of tread left on it, but i do many long distance business trips so this will soon be gone.
