    Take a close up good quality photo of the lock nut and take it to a VX dealer who should be able to identify it and order a replacement key. I think they charge 25 pounds upwards and takes a few weeks if I remember correctly from other posts about this. Hope this helps.

    Have you got the box with the spare nuts and the card or you missing the lot? Should have the key number on if you do.

    thanks guys, and yes i have the box with the spare nuts in and there is a part number on them, my only suspicion is just incase the previous owner has had to change it for some reason and there not the same ones. ( theres no way of contacting previous owner to find out) il phone Vauxhall and see what they can do - failing that il get the garage to remove them and il buy a new set. OH and its jut the key that im missing.

    Thanks alot :-)

    I took mine into a tyre garage and the chipped one of my alloys trying to get mine off so stopped them from doing the rest and ended up getting a mate to weld them and use a irwin bolt remover on them worked a treat.

    Socket. Lump hammer. Crack bar.
    Whack the socket onto the head of the bolt and use the crack bar to remove.
    Takes seconds and never fails.
    Locking wheel nuts are pretty useless when all's said and done.
