    Which bit does it take to remove the lug bolts on a 1.5? I was just at the parts store trying every triple square bit they had, and no success. An M14 came closest to fitting.

    I believe it's a "triple square" fitting.

    Its not a triple square which it a 12 point. It is a 10 point. Check at your local auto parts store for a spline drive "tuner" lug nut kit. They are usually the same. I got mine at O'Reilly's.

    Check under the floor cover in the trunk. My tools and the wheel tools are kept under the false bottom.
