Lugg bolts on 63 beetle


Recommended Posts

Hi, On the passenger side rear wheel are the lug bolts left hand threaded? Someone must have used an impact driver to install it because they won t budge! I don't want to share one off going the wrong way.Thanks.

This is the reason I torque all of my lug nuts. We had a Beatle growing up and someone hammered the lug nuts with an air gun. I broke breaker bars trying to remove them. A machinist showed me how to put a hardened socked on the lug and smack it with a bfh, smack it a couple of times and it will come off.
