    Locking wheelnut set - why are the other 4 bolts in there

    Dumped my locking bolts, had one break on the Volvo, turned an ordinary wheel change into a 6 hour marathon, as mentioned, with alloys being so common are they worth stealing? As a note, you may need standard/shorter bolts to fit steel wheel if you have this as a spare.

    Need a good alloy wheel cleaner

    Slightly off topic, when they're cleaned and sparkling, what's the best product to keep them clean? I was thinking of using PoorBoys wax on my newly painted alloys but welcome any recomendations please. The inevitable build up of brake dust makes them dull pretty quickly...thanks guys.

    Mercedes w169 ESP light after tracking?

    Had a similar problem on my C180K after replacing track rod ends, steering wheel was off center and confused the steering angle sensor. Has the steering wheel been removed previously? Was the rack centralised before refitting? Maybe worth another alignment check, making sure that both ends of...

    R129 Rear Brake Caliper, 1 piston fine, other piston does not move

    You could try putting a g clamp on the working piston, then see if the other one careful that it doesn't pop out completely though...then try pushing it back, repeating a few times might be enough to free it up

Found this engine fairly easy to work on for usual service items although alternator replacement proved a pita, regular oil & filter changes seem to make a diference, I...

    Tyre balness inner and outer edge

    I don't want to sound derogatory to the OP, but any driver should be competent enough to know this tyre is not roadworthy, even if it was, there is enough wear to tell you something is not right with either suspension, tracking or inflation. I too would suggest under inflation, but merely...
