Ok, so how can you tell from looking which is the locking nut and what is the difference with the cap for these?

I would guess, that internally, there are 4 round ones and the others are hex.

Iam amazed that everyone is happy to purchase nut covers.surely these should be replaced free of charge at the local seat dealer.it is obvious that the covers fitted at seat are not up to spec. Or am i missing something ????

The issue is that I assume the valater is just throwing the nut covers on without looking that 4 are for locking wheel nut and the rest standard bolts. All the ones I lost were for the locking wheel nuts that had been fitted to hex bolts. None had fallen off for 6 months, then as soon as the temperature dropped they started to fall off.

For the cost in fuel of travelling to a dealer; time wasted arguing the point, buying them off eBay has probably saved me time and money TBH.

Slightly off topic, but has anyone had a problem with discoloration of the covers. My covers are slowly turning white.

Not on the Arona, but on previous Fabias, most Skoda owners put it down to using strong wheel cleaning solutions.

Could be - just bought a 1 year old Arona and took it to the local hand car wash place today. Hardly a major issue, but was interested to know if this was a common occurrence.

Lost two of the locking nuts covers in the first six days of ownership. Wrapped the other two in insulation tape and rolled excess over.

One of the first things I did when I got my Arona home was remove all the nut covers,I think the wheels look ok without them,plus in the event of a puncture it's one less thing to faff about with as I find them a bit fiddley to remove.
