Hi all,

I'm sure this question has come up before but I couldn't find an answer. Can anyone advise where th locking wheel nut and towing eye are stored in a VX220 / Speedster?

Open front bonnet and should both be in passenger side chassis.

Thanks, had a look and nothing is immediately obvious on the passenger side. Is there any illustration showing?

There should be a rubber grommet with them around this positions.

Cheers, thanks for that. The rubber grommet is there but the towing eye must have been removed previously.

Step 1: get rid of those locking wheel nuts - weight saving when you throw the key away.

Step 2: see Max88 Performance for the towing eyes; he does them in a few colours. He is on Facebook.

+1 on the locking wheel nuts. More trouble than they’re worth.

For the towing eye, I’d be looking at Chris Redman’s replacement tow post. Clam off job, but it won’t break/rust away.

Good shout; this is the long term approach. Or you could think good thoughts and consider you'll never have to be towed!

LOL! Are we talking about the same VX? biggrin

Problem is, if/when the original post breaks, it’ll take a chunk of clam with it! /voe
