Sheered wheel nuts

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

I have a Jaguar XF S 3.0d (62 plate). I have now had a second wheel nut sheer whilst trying to remove a wheel (one front and one rear). The first was just over a year ago and cost almost £1000 to resolve at my main dealer. The second happened a week ago and is about to go back into the main dealer to be sorted once again. The reason for wheel removal was firstly, a puncture, the second to replace the front brake pads. My fear is that more will sheer in the near future.

Is this a common fault? Does anyone know how best to get the sheered nut out/off for cheaper?

Many thanks,

Clive Hunt

hi

not sure about the XF, but I think the wheels nuts are the same on my S-type R

if there the flat seat ones with a stainless cover, there a bad design, if there tightened up with air guns, the stainless sleeve slips and you can't get them  undone, also there reknown for shearing off

have a look at the pics below

cheers

swap them for these, these are solid no covers and are still 19mm so oe wheel brace can be used

Joe,

Very many thanks for the info on the wheel nuts. They look very similar if not the same as on my XF. I have had 2 sheer so far, am I the only one I wonder?

No doubt it’s going to cost me a small fortune to have it removed by my Jaguar dealer!

Cheers,

Clive Hunt

And this is what lurks beneath the chrome cap after just 8 years. Get them changed for the solid versions.
