Broken wheel stud and lug nut.

Hi AK, Can you show some pics of the locks themselves? Should be able to tell by a visible inspection and comparison against a standard lug nut.

So I'm gonna guess I DON'T have wheel locks installed according to this picture? Because according to my invoice, they charged me $169 for the wheel locks they supposedly installed. At this point I won't be surprised if they didn't even fill my tires with nitrogen which they charged me $99 for.

You have no wheel locks, those are the standard lugs.

They charged you $169? They only cost around $40.

I just got off the phone and parts dept. is telling me part #999h1-a7009 is supposed to the be wheel locks for my 370Z. However, a quick google search shows that the wheels locks are for 370Z Grand Touring/Track models and Frontier LE. So I told him to look up part #999W2-JT000 and #999W2-Z3409 which is supposedly the correct wheel locks for the 370Z and he told me that it is nonexistent in their bench stock.

So I'm kind of confused on what I'm supposed to do now since they already charged me $169 for wheel locks that they never installed in the first place. I asked him several times if he's 100% sure whether the wheel locks he told me are correct and he kept insisting that is the right part #. I highly doubt the dealership will refund me the money either so should I just wait a couple of months until the dealership gets a clue?

Well....where are the wheel locks? Do you have them separate somewhere? If not, I'd just drive back, get the sales manager and point at your wheels and ask him 'where the heck are my locks???'

Then he'll just be like, "we'll install em right away!"

With the wrong wheel locks of course(#999h1-a7009)


Also, I've checked everywhere for wheel locks in my car and they're nowhere to be seen.

Just stay with what you have until they can get the correct ones. Whatever you do don't let them install the 350Z ones (#999h1-a7009), you will both regret it!

I'm still trying to come to grips with the nitrogen charge. Check out this link:

Thumbs up Finally problem solved.

First of all, thanks everyone for keeping this thread alive. If it wasn't for this thread, I would probably never looked at this issue.

Part no. 999H1-A7009 is the wrong part for this car! That's what my dealer installed on my car. These lug nuts are so bad, it took 0 effort to take them off my car!!! They don't even thread all the way on the bolt.

I installed the new locking nuts and finally I could actually tighten them on the bolt.

If your dealer gave you a FREE set of locking nuts, please go outside and inspect them. I am including some pictures so that you can understand better.

Thanks everyone and I can finally drift sideways without worrying about my lugs exploding!

Thanks AK, those look much better! Essentially you've been driving around with only 4 nuts on each wheel all this time, kind of scary.

Thanks for the pics, AK, I too can now drive with peace of mind lol. This whole thing really had me confused, but I got the JT000s, which are meant for the G35, according to the included instructions.

Of course, I couldn't tell this until opening the package, and was basically SOL on returning it, so I decided to go ahead and compare it to the regular lug, and they looked identical in every measurement, so I concluded it had to be fine. After installing I saw this thread, and it had me second guessing the locks... especially when I rechecked the site I got them from and they listed the Z3409 part number.

Courtesy Nissan assured me, when I called them, that both part numbers exist, and are in fact the same. Evidently they label the same locks individually for each car model so people can be assured they got the right locks for their car. With that kind of policy, I find it ironic this whole mess has occurred on such a grand scale.

You're correct anatorey. Even though I didn't call them, but after browsing the site I realized they add that 2nd part to easily identify their products (see below for my previous post) . So, if anyone calling their dealer to order this part, use the part no shown in the picture (to avoid any confusion)

I'm glad everything worked out.

That McGard part shouldn't really be used as it doesn't have the washer nor a tapered end.
