Porsche 914 Factory Tool Kit Lug Wrenches

If It's Good Enough for a Volkswagen...

All Porsche 914 factory tool kits included an unmarked two-piece lug wrench. The wrench is comprised of a 19 mm socket and a black-painted, bent-tip tommy bar, approximately 375 mm in length. As noted below, the socket underwent a minor transformation following the 1974 model year, but the associated tommy bar was consistent throught the entirety of the Porsche 914 model production. Note that a longer tommy bar and variations of this socket were produced for use in earlier VW applications (including a reversible lug/spark plug), so be vigilant when searching for a correct lug wrench to complete your Porsche 914 tool kit.

1970 - 1974 Porsche 914 Lug Wrenches

Model year 1970-1974 Porsche 914 vehicle tool kits contain a 19 mm lug socket that is 140 mm in length and has a black oxide finish. The tommy bar is the black, 375 mm bent-tip style present in all 914 tool kits.

1975 - 1976 Porsche 914 Lug Wrenches

The 1975 and 1976 model year cars were equipped with a slightly shorter 19 mm lug socket (100 mm in length) with a silver-cadmium or zinc plated finish. The change to this shorter socket may have actually occurred during the 1975 model year (as opposed to between the 1974 and 1975 model year production runs).
