i smashed the first one trying to get it off.So after a trip to my local garage the offending wheel nuts have been removed and i replaced them with a set i had from my old Ford Kuga.Job done thanks to everyone for making me aware of this as i am new to the Mokka ownership.

First thing i did when i got my latest Vectra a few years ago was replace them all round with a new set. Like butter they are.

if you look in your glove box, there should be a little box containing the locking wheel remover and 4 standard nuts/bolts, iv removed my locking bolts amd replaced with the non locking bolts as had a corsa which had to have its lockers removed by a dealer as the tool broke, also dealer broke their tool as well
