|Peugeot 306 2.0 HDI (YEAR 2000) 5406.02 WHEEL SECURITY BOLT LOST SOCKET AND REMOVAL|
↓ This is a view of the security bolt looking down the hole in the wheel. I could not remove the bolt so I had to measure it up just by looking at the top of it which was 30mm down in the bolt hole in the wheel. It was difficult to say the least.
↓ I placed the tap con washer on the bolt head. I placed the end of a thick walled tube against the washer. I hit the tube with a hammer. This pushed the washer hard against the bolt head and left an imprint of the four holes on the washer.
↓ I machined a short bar of metal in the lathe. This would become the special socket.
↓ I placed the socket back in the lathe and proceeded to bore a circular recess 9mm deep.
↓ I stopped boring when half of each of the four holes was removed.
↓ I made four pins to fit the holes.
Later on, I brazed the assembly using silver solder.
↓ I then realised I had made a mistake. The socket was 38mm long, but this was far too short.
↓ The socket and extension piece are joined by three 8mm pins.
↓ I bored three mating holes in the socket.
↓ This is the finished assembly after it was brazed up and used.
↓ The tool does not look pretty but it did the job and removed all four security bolts.
