Spare Tire Release Hex Bit Size

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the size of the hex bit I will need to insert into the guide hole?  Just in case I lose the OEM lug wrench.  And just in case anyone needs to know, the OEM torque spec is 100 lb-ft.  With an 18" breaker bar, and a 3/4" socket, the lug nuts came off with ease.

The hex bit on the lug wrench is 13 mm, with a loose fit, but a 14 mm bit doesn't fit. It looks like a 1/2" bit would work as well.

Did you need an excuse to visit your nearest HF?

I never need an excuse to go to Harbor Freight. Nor do I have an excuse for drinking intoxicants and associating with vixens with low moral standards.  

 

But it won't be a Harbor Freight trip.  Harbor Freight sells sets of sockets.  Sears has open stock.  I will not buy 180 pieces, for the 1 size I want.  

 

Already own hex bit kits that I only bought for 1 size.  Problem is that they are too small.  Now I have a bunch of small bits without purpose.

Okay.  13 mm is slightly more than 1/2".  14 mm is equal to 9/16".

zalienz,

 

Was your 13 mm a loose fit also?

Loose fit is intentional. You should be able to rotate it comfortably.

If you have a Northern Tool Store near you ... check them out.  They sell LOTS of single item sockets and bits for ratchets.

I've spent a few weeks out there every year for over a decade.  So far, I've not seen any girls that were worth the gas prices or other restrictions.

The line, "I wish they all could be California girls." wasn't about beauty, I think.  It was about "easy".

 

Fishing is good all over, too.  Nothing special.

 

The only thing I've seen in California that's better than anywhere else in the Country ... that Northern California Coastline.  Beautiful.

Other than that ... not a fan.

And that is a bad thing?   I will only go with a girl who say "yes".

Next time you're out here, I'll get you on a charter boat.  We'll take you out into the open ocean.  Little bit different than lake fishing.  Fish are a lot bigger.
