This works, I know from experience, althought it took forever!!! Somehow, I lost the key for mine when we were in Mexico, and I didn't want to drive back on my swampers, I would've done almost anything to get them off!!!DMMcG said:I got one off after lengthy use of a bastard file and a large pair of vice-grips (with my Hi-lift handle for added torque)....ya use what you have available...
A chizel alone may not work but a chizel a grinder and vise grips does. I cut a slit and then hit it with the chizel to loosen it then grinded two sides flat and used the vise grips. worked great about 2 min a nut.KEV said:ohhh beat you to this one by a few seconds lars. heh
chisel dosnt work worth beens , been there done that.
Found out the hard way that using a pair of vice grips and some elbow grease eventually does the job, jus keep jumping on the vice grips when you figure out how to keep them on the nut. it does work beleive mePw82 said:anyone got any tricks to remove them, When my truck was stolen they took the key and everything. thanks
...you know how it is with the "mechanically dis-inclined" - we just do stuff that's rational. Sometimes it works. Sometimes it doesn't. Whether it really made a difference in this case is anyone's guess.lars said:
Dale, nice idea about tightening the other lug nuts. I've never heard of that one before!
