I unlocked the bootloader, flashed CWM recovery, superSu apk and Busybox

If i want to return my nexus 4 to the SAT to replace it, making a full wipe factory reset, flashing stock recovery and locking the bootloader will be enough?

Root files, supersu and busybox remain with a Factory reset? I didn't change the rom is the stock rom.

Thank you

A factory reset will not remove root files or busybox or any other files that you put in /system. A factory reset only deletes the data in the userdata partition, not in the system partition.

I flashed the stock image from the toolkit to return it to the sat but I'm from Spain and I remember when I first start my nexus was in Spanish, now when you first start or make a factory reset it's in English. That could be a problem to give it to the sat for a replacement?

Hi,
I followed everything in Step D and I am stuck at logo X
When in recovery, I do not see any option to wipe factory data, I only see android symbol with red exclamation sign.
Please advise how to go pass through the logo

The android with the red exclamation is the main screen of the stock recovery. To access the menu from that screen, hold the power button and press volume up.

You are NOT supposed to press volume up + power.

You are supposed to hold the power button and THEN press volume up.
