    Default Locking Wheel Nuts - No key - Help

    Today I spotted a bulge in the trye wall, so did the sensible thing and headed off the the trye shop.

    Problem - I dont have the key to remove the locking wheel nut. I have only had the car for 6 months and I am adamant I have never had the key, the dealer isnt much help as they say they dont have it.

    Is there anything I can do?

    Not much help on a sunday, but all Vx stealers should have a master set (assuming it's a set of Vx bolts).

    You might try an auto-locksmith, but you might be looking at a chisel job (not good for alloys).

    Most recovery agents (AA/RAC, etc) also carry a universal remover.

    I saw a set of locking wheel nut removers in Halfords yesterday, never took too good a look but the packaging said "for removing locking nuts when no key is available" or something to that effect.

    clicky Here you go. Don't know if there any good or not though
