    Genuine Vx ones (with a spinnning "collar" around the locking nut) or aftermarket? If the latter, Halfords sell a locking nut remover. Alternatively, any tyre fitters can get it off, but they may say they're not responsible for any damage to the wheels caused by them.

    When the puncture was removed for repair, was an electronic wheel nut remover used, From experience these often cause damage to the locking nut key.

    Thanks for the replies. May have to speak to vx thou to get a new key.
