You can also try doing this with just one piece cut out of the side of the nut as it may be a bit easier to work with.

Try Rob Whitton or Dai... they will no doubt be able to help with a shaft and just re[lace it.

And dont be hard on yourself. I have worked on cars for 40 + years including running my own business (working in modern junk sadly). Anyone who states they have never made a mistake when repairing vehicles is either a liar or oblivious they have done it.

I personally would ony re thread if you are 100% the nut will be secure and not loose and gripping. If any of this is not in place or you are unsure then buy new or used along with a new oil seal. and check and or replace the wheel bearing whilst you are at it. The process is shown brilliantly on You Tube Amazon Cars - wheel bearing replacement.

Hi all,
Many thanks to everyone who helped me out. I used the two half's of the original broken castle nut to run the threads out from in to out (thanks Blueosprey). That then allowed me to run the die nut I bought from out to in and that cleaned up the threads a second time. With a bit of lube and working the new castle nuts backwards and forwards i managed to get both on. Brakes bleed and ready to go.

The only problem now is I noticed one of the wheel nuts ran straight through the hole in the steel wheel. I can only guess that might have happened when a over zealous tyre fitter got carried away with his air-gun when he put the wheel back on after fitting some new tyres last year. I guess it means I'll have to but a new wheel!

Thanks
Phil

Wear to the wheel holes is common after all these years but rarely gets checked until too late, as you have found. The first sign is that the hole gets sharp edges, be careful when you check. This will only get worse but a smear of grease will at least allow the nut to slide on the surface rather than wear it even more. I've made the comment before that many who check WILL find they have wear and damage. Don't take good wheels to the scrapyard!

Thanks Derek
I assume in my case that once the wheel nut passes through the widened hole its time to get a new wheel?

Absolutely. Check them all. You do have a spare wheel?
