Craig, a mechanic and MOT tester from Walsall Wood Tyre & Service, has posted another video on TikTok, this time on the subject of the most important thing a motorist should leave in their car when they visit a garage.
Can you guess what it is?
Craig asks: “What is the single most important thing you need to make sure is in your car before you go to the garage?”
“It’s not fuel,” he says. “We don’t care about that; we can still make it run.
“It is, of course, a locking wheel nut key. Without this little device here, folks, no technician is going to be able to remove your wheels without risking damage to the nuts or the wheels itself.”
How many hours have you lost searching the glovebox, boot, door pockets or central storage box, only to find that the locking wheel nut key is missing?
One commenter suggested the customer should bring a new 10mm socket “to bribe your mechanic into doing a good job”.
