Lock nut, no key?


Recommended Posts

A few years back I helped out a neighbour, he had broken the key and they were smaller nuts on Merc Vito, but I don't see why it wouldn't work on a LR. I welded a couple of  plates at 90 deg, drove the Merc onto the base plate, and used a mag drill (Roatbroach) attached to the vertical plate to drill over the stud, took a bit of messing about to line it up but it worked a treat, we bought an 18mm cutter to suit the Merc stud, need to be 23mm at least I should think

With a loose axle you could probably just clamp a plate to the wheel easy enough, of course you do need a Rotabroach style drill for starters.
