If your Model X is equipped with lug nut covers, you must remove them to access the lug nuts.

To remove a lug nut cover:

  1. Insert the curved part of the lug nut cover tool, if equipped (located in the glovebox in some vehicles, or you can use a small allen wrench) into the hole at the base of the Tesla "T".
