Re: Changing a wheel stud?

when putting one on,make sure it's copper greased will aid the turn,failing that find a slightly courser threaded nut and if you do it gently enough,can start to cut a new thread

could possibly be a yellow round switch,located to the right of the steering column,if not it's possibly lose,floating around up under the dash

Re: Changing a wheel stud?

There is a blanked off switch to the right & 2 wires (red wire & black with red stripe) in the boot but i think this job is way out of my league

Re: Changing a wheel stud?

it'll be easy bud,just trace the wire into the cabin,there should be a live lose wire floating about up there somewhere,connect the red wire to it and then join the 2 connected wires and the black and red onto a switch n then job done
