McGuard Lock bolts

Max Speed

Recommended Posts

Whilst changing over front to back wheels on our 2006 Ducato, had a catastrophic failure of a 14mm x 1.25 x 35mm McGuard wheel lock bolt. Part of the outer chrome plated hardened head sheared/ broke off while removing,leaving the bolt in situ and tight. The Anglo Saxon was choice!

Fortunately after serious pondering and a large G&T, I managed to fit the broken part back in the key matrix and fit to the sheared head, with loads of pressure and my electric wrench and with all digits crossed the bolt came out PHEW!!!!

The other 3 McGuard bolts have been consigned to the parts bin , so now have to look at replacing the lock bolts and a complaint to McGuard is being drafted
