Interesting—as always, what do I know? Nothing. But the clicking noise on my 14 S began with well under 10k on the clock. Probably more like 5k.
Interesting. I hadn't heard about Lotus replacing them. Suggests a known problem.I have a 400 with 10,400 miles and started noticing the snapping twigs some time ago. I have the forged wheels and check the torque on the bolts regularly, keeping approx at spec (though they don’t loosen). I brought to my dealer who serviced as follows: “Installed A138G6012F: Wheel bolt with collar - 57M Qty:20. Installed updated wheel bolts per aftersales” and they covered under warranty. I am wondering if this is not common on 400s as most have not seen a ton of miles yet but from conversation with my dealer this is well known to them and they knew just what to do. No noise post replacement but it has only been a few days too.
Any news please ?Quick update on my dealer replacement using the A138G6012F bolts - I am just at 11K miles now (600 miles and 3 weeks past replacement) and no noise at all. A note I didn't mention in my earlier post is that I did check the torque on the bolts and the dealer torqued to right around the 77ft-lbs (spec).
