Volkswagen have added an anti-theft wheel bolt to the new models of the Amarok. While this is a great thing to deter would be wheel thieves, sometimes it pays to read the manual to make sure you aren’t caught out.
Page 263 of the 06.2016 Edition of the Owner’s Manual recommends you carry the wheel bolt adapter in the vehicle toolkit at all times. It also highlights that there is a code number stamped on the front of the adapter, which you will need to replace the adapter if you lose it. We found this out the hard way after an ACQ trip as it seems its bad news when it comes to a missing anti-theft adaptor!!!
