Loose Lug Nut Covers


Apr 27, 2016
Here's a heads up... I took our X on its first long trip this past weekend. Prior to leaving I wanted to make sure I could remove the lug nut covers with the tools I had loaded in the car. When I barely touched the first cover with pliers, it fell out. I checked the rest just with fingers and every one was loose and popped out with almost no force. I pushed in each cover to fully seat them and they all required more than 1/4" of travel to fully seat. I am surprised I haven't had any of them fall off. So you may want to check your covers by pushing them in and making sure they are fully seated.
