    Vehicle : Signum 2.0 DTi

    It used to be the case that the larger vx dealers would keep a set of master keys ,many still do , but the thing is they stopped advertising the fact so when anyone went to them to ask for locking nuts to be removed they could then turn around and say that they would have to be cut off and then they could justiffy charging £100. So punter coffs up his £100 to have his lockers removed car dissapears for !/2 an hour and comes back minus lockers when all the garage have done is used the master key .
    Easy money .

    24mm socket hammered on to the nut head, prise it out with the wrench and the spinning collar will be stuck inside it, then hammer on 18mm socket and wind off! Just make sure you buy two new cheap sockets
