Fig. 144 Principle sketch: Anti-theft wheel bolt with adapter

The anti-theft wheel bolts can only be removed/tightened with the aid of the adapter » page 158, Vehicle tool kit.

  • Remove the cover from the anti-theft wheel bolt.
  • Insert adapter B » Fig. 144 with its toothed end fully into the inner toothing of the anti-theft wheel bolt A to the stop so that only the outer hexagon projects.
  • Push the wheel wrench onto the adapter B up to the stop.
  • Loosen or tighten the wheel bolt » page 160.
  • After removing the adapter, replace the cap on the anti-theft wheel bolt.
  • Have the tightening torque checked with a torque wrench as soon as possible.

Note

  • Make a note of the code number hammered into the rear side of the adapter or the rear side of the anti-theft wheel bolt. This number can be used to purchase a ŠKODA Original Parts replacement adapter, if necessary
  • We recommend that you always carry the adapter for the wheel bolts with you in the vehicle. It should be stowed in the vehicle tool kit.
  • The anti-theft wheel bolt set and adapter can be purchased from a ŠKODA Partner.
