Hi, I am trying to change my wheel, I have alloys on my clio, I can't find the wheel hub nut spanner, to take the hub cap off. can't even get to the wheel! says it should be in glove box? What does this look like, I cant find anything to fit and I am really stuck. No one around to ask thought I would try here. Thanks x

Look inside the boot it may be beside the jack and other stuff.:p

Just remembered where it will be - it will be where the last person left it

Is the hub cap attached by a bolt with 3 or 4 small holes in the top?

Hi Boo - what you are looking for is the key to remove the centre cap - it has T- shaped handle usually made from plastic - but you could also try using a pair of pointy nosed pliers and turn it anti-clockwise:)

A pair of needle nose pliers does the job, had to use them on mine a couple of times
