2014 Front wheel removal tool

Post by Sullivj »

Having realised despite owning half of machine mart (!),I didn't have anything to undo the wheel spindle..


So I bought one of these. The end hex's are removable (to reveal a 3/8" drive hole), but it easily fits in the spindle with them on.


£17.99 on fleabay.

That would be handy for the roadside toolkit as well.  I try to carry just enough to do very basic repairs, including removing both wheels (worst case scenario).

Amazon do a Laser one too, https://www.amazon.co.uk/Laser-3933-Mot ... B003AMVP6I

All these keys fit a 2012 TC, not sure about a 2014 LC.

That's useful to know - although if I break down I'm much more likely to be picking up the phone than getting out spanners. But it's good to know I could if I had to.
