    Hello, Anyone know the nut size of the spare wheel on the front bonnet of my ex mod ffr 110.
    Yes I know it's a daft question, but I have already bought a socket set and have a low budget...so will buy the right size socket

    I'm pretty sure they are the same size as the nuts on your wheels. That way you can use the same wrench to undo the spare from the bonnet if you have a flat.

    mines same as the wheel nuts, only snag is, there is not enough clearance round the side of the nut to use the landy wheel brace, so it keeps coming loose/rattling I need to get a socket for the job too, can stick it on me spider then.

    That's the problem, I haven't got a wheel brace...only just got this one(ex mod ffr 110) and its my first landie...I keep on grinning all day, and so does the wife. Do I have to buy the brace and if not what is the size ?

    Cheers

    Hello,
    Did you have to put new locks on the doors, if so, was it easy. I have seen a hands on guide but the door handle shown is newer than mine. Just trying to fathom if I need to get just the barrels(with keys) or new handles as well. The handles work fine, just have no lock in them lol
