2、Mandatory removal with electrowelding

  • Note: In order to prevent your wheels from being burned during the welding process, be sure to apply a thick layer of lubricating grease. The thicker, the better.

① First prepare the following materials:

A square or hexagonal iron bar, 2-3 packs of lubricating grease, An adjustable wrench,A welding machine (Only the permittee can operate),

② Apply a thick layer of lubricating grease on the wheel , especially around the screw holes, the thicker the better.

③ Weld the square or hexagonal iron rod on the wheel lock nut.

④Then use the adjustable wrench to twist the square or hexagonal iron bar. Then the wheel lock nut can be removed by turning the iron bar.

⑤Wash the lubricating grease and you're done.
