Broke my locking wheel nut key bout 2 months ago. Now in desperate need of tyres and each tyre place I speak to don't seem confidinet at all.
Looked at most of the post's in here now and they seem to say the same thing.
I phoned my local VX dealer and the parts guy was helpful, told me to take the key down with my log book and they can check their keys to find a match.
When I went down to the parts department he then sent me to the service people (who I hate in VX) and they told me they have no spare keys and they would need to put it onto the ramp at cost from the word go. I told them what I got told and they said they don't have spares again. I tried to argue what I was told and asked why I got told it to waste my time to go down.
I took the car down to protyre yesterday and they had a go. we removed the 2 rears (as these were done by me and were not too tight) but the fronts still wont budge. He tried knocking a 22 and 23 on and failed.
They sent me away as they could not do it on the weekend and I would need to leave it with them in the week.
I have tried knocking a 18 and 19 with no success.
Looking around I don't want to drill as it sound a very bad idea and time consuming.
How or who around Bristol can remove these or what can I do.
I don't have breakdown but am tempted on getting to see if they can get it off.
All help is massivly appreciated!!
