As I get older, very little surprises me but I continue to be amazed that some drivers never check their vehicles.
This vehicle came to Worcester’s Mobile Mechanic so that we could rectify brake issues. We located the locking wheel nut key – and immediately noticed that the key had split.
The customer admitted that he had not noticed this when putting the spare on recently and I explained that, should we not be able to remove the nuts, this would add to the labour costs already quoted.
Luckily – and with considerable care – we managed to remove the wheel bolts and, with the customer’s permission, ordered a new locking wheel nut set to ensure no problems at a later date.
Remember a poorly maintained vehicle is a breakdown waiting to happen. Come to the experts at Worcester’s Mobile Mechanic.
