    Get them off and get them binned, If your in the AA or RAC they have the tools to remove them most of the time. After reading soo many broken VX Keys I bought McGard instead, and for less than the cost of a new VX key.

    there is a way to pull out a broken nut.
    first you have to bay a set of easy out set than you have to drill a whole in the center of the nut for example 1/4 of an in or 6.4 mm then put the largest easy out drill in the whole and the turn like you want tight the bolt. you have to be careful not to broke the drill. if that happen there is no hope. i will try to post some pic
