Thanks Mike. Yer a STAR . Eye don't think it needs to be a 166 ony Alfa Fiat will doo.

I am so angry wie masell...I saw the blake pipe where twas left when the blake pipe was replaced and dissied it....naebudy tay blame butt masell ..ESP wie the track history of these beasties. WISH I now hud used the ESP.
Wishing I had slackened off the other 3 before jumping oan the breaker bar. Expected it to crack and slacken and no dessicated the locking socket.

I am also no certain jist how specific the code needs to be.

Possibly better just getting them extracted and sticking my spares in which I have both wheel nut removers.

Warning to all wie only one locking nut/bolt remover.

Never thought it wid 'appen tay me
