Now the question of lug nut torque: When you changed out one lug nut to the "locking" type, did you tightened that new nut to 162 ft lbs as stated in the owner's manual?

After I reset the one wheel where I removed the wheel locking nut I did check the wheel nut torque on all 4 wheels. They were 145 ft lbs; so I reset all to 150 ft lbs. My torque wrench is only 22" in overall length and no trouble removing the nuts and setting them. I have used the same torque wrench to tighten wheel hub nuts to 230 ft lbs so wheel nuts are no problem.
