piece of cake...kind of
I got in the tool and went to autozone and got some replacement lug nuts. unfortunately the lug nuts didn't fit the factory wrench with the kit. the nuts fit the lugs but not the wrench.
the tool worked well. the reverse threads zipped the nuts off with no problem. getting the nuts out of the tool was another story. it said to grind down the sides of the nut and put it in a vice and zip it off with the impact wrench. I don't have a grinder or a vice. the friend that I rely on for his huge selection of tools moved out last weekend. I was left with a standard wrench set and a bastard file. I filed down the sides until it fit in a 3/4 inch wrench, put the wrench on it, placed a piece of wood on the ground, placed the socket on the wood (which I stood on), and pulled the trigger. I held on to the first one until it finally came lose. I repeated the process two more times. that leaves one in the tool. I will worry about that one tomorrow. this isn't the best way to do it but I was excited to get it done.
I plan to go and get the correct lug nuts tomorrow and hopefully rotate the tires soon. that was all I wanted to do to her car to begin with. I have some pics of the stuff I used below.
Be the change you wish to see in the world
