As some of you know, my new SE has 1 locknut that refuses to come of.  I tried everything and just managed to mangle it.  Being sometimes a little short on patience, I took to drilling, grinding beating, just about everything.  Just succeeded in more mangulation (I'll take credit for that verb).   Angry

Bought a LeBaron for my daughter and decided to put the Fiero rims on as they had good snows.  Went around loosening the lugnuts and lo and behold........one solitary locknut and no key.  Not being brave enough to mangle her car, I went the thinking man's route.

CTC Product #58-9136-8 (I think)  Bolt extractor sockets) $28ish

Well, hammered the sucker on, and using a 24MM socket cranked it out like nothing. Had to stick the socket in a vice and whack out the nut with a hammer and small socket.

What about that abortion on my Fiero?  Didn't fit so well on the nut and I banged it on good.  Used a long bar and slowly but surely it gave up it's grip.

Wife said "why didn't you just get one of those to start with?"   Embarrassed  Embarrassed  Embarrassed  Embarrassed  Embarrassed

Moral of the story....buy a set for your tool box   Afro  Afro  Afro  Afro

And violate one of the main rules to a happy marriage which states never listen to the wife no matter how right she may appear as the cost of admitting such a thing even once can haunt you the rest of your life. Dan
