    Default Anyone one liverpool got a locking nut key 185

    Afternoon, I'm trying to get my wheels off and the locking nut key is goosed and need a new one. Well I don't I just want the locking nuts off. Vauxhall want £48 to take them off. I asked him if he was joking and he's not. They want £32 for a replacement key don't wanna pay this as wont be putting the lock back on as more trouble than good. If the beeps want the wheels they get them as I know people who have had wheels taken with locking nuts on so they seem useless. Can anybody help or advice? Went to a tyre place and they said they wouldn't do it.

    I really had to resist the urge to tell you to drive a bit further into Liverpool and park up, sure enough, within 5 minutes, all your wheels would be removed!

    OOOOPS!, I just said it!

    Glad you got it sorted though mate, lots on here have had the same problem and many either go with after-market locking nuts or none at all.

    There's black or silver caps here but that's packs of 20, and seems a lot to pay if you only need 4. Got a local scrapyard near (*to self: don't say Liverpool! Don't say Liverpool!) or maybe post in the wanted section here and see if any members have some going spare?
