Hi,

I've just purchase a second hand E3 GTS.

Can anyone tell me where the locknut is usually found?

My previous HSV's have all had a little area in the glove box to store it.

I'm guessing mine is missing but any help would be appreciated.

Will contact the dealer tomorrow.

Cheers,
Adam

Usually glove box or centre console.....mines a VY though.
Is there a special wheel change tool kit for the VE's???

Hey Adam,

Mate you are right, generally in the glovebox. If not then centre console or with the Spare/tyre change gear......check everywhere including rear centre armrest compartment. Otherwise as you said .....dealer visit.

There is a single lock nut tool in the VE's that is in a resealable plastic bag located in the glovebox. Used mine for the first time last month when changing to new rims.

I have an E2 Clubby and mine's in a little plastic bag in the case containing the owners manual in the glove box.

Yep , little plastic bag in the glovebox, with the unlocking nut in it .
When new in the bag there is a sticker with all the info like, serial number ,inquires number, [ USA phone number...lol] or www.mcgard.com. I have seen new packets of them at the HSV dealer parts for sale , can't remember how much.
