    Default Lost locking wheel nut key

    I got a puncture last night, and when I tried to change the wheel I couldn't find my wheel nut key I changed from the vx ones last year and put some supposedly better ones on. I wasn't far from home so drove it and destroyed the tyre, which I can live with. Just at a loss as to how I'm going to get the flippin wheel off? and I'll have to get all four lockers off somehow if the key doesn't turn up. Deffo a candidate for my dad's Alzhiemers, I have no idea where I put the key, obviously somewhere safe lol. I'm not a happy bunny today.

    Try hammering a 19mm socket on.

    Or if you have aa/rac call them they have a tool to help locking nuts off

    Thx guys a mechanic mate is coming shortly to see if he can hammer a socket on it. No doubt I'll find the key when he's munched through the nut lol.

    Yay he's got it off by hammering an 18mm socket on it. Fortunately due to locking bolt problems I didn't tighten the lockers quite as much as the normal ones, so that helped. Thx again guys. Just hope I haven't damaged anything by driving on a flat tyre for a mile or so.
