    Or get someone to weld a bold to it and then remove it. That's what they did to mine.

    Thanks fellas Ive seen all the stuff on eBay and seen various ways of removing locking nuts. But thought I'd try my luck on someone nearby having the same key or a nut remover. If not then I will go for one of these other options

    don't bother with a universal removal tool, i tried several when i bought my car without the key. they all rely on reverse screwing onto the outside of the head, which with the vauxhall standard lockers doesn't work as they have a rotating ring on them.
    Go to your local VX dealer as they should have a master set, if your lucky they'll sit with you and go through the box trying them one by one. they can then order you a replacement, or if they are really helpful they'll let you remove them all and throw them in the bin!!

    i'm sure that they have an identification number on the head of the key, think its a really small box with a 2 didgit number in

    If you are an AA or RAC member they have sockets to take them off. Just deflate the tyre and call them out.
