    hi m8

    if the existing 1 is a vauxhall locking key then you can get 1 by ordering it
    from ya local parts dept`t but you will need the number of the locking key
    thats on a card in your locking nut key box,if not then you will have to buy
    a new locking set.
    get dealer to remove the old ones,or do it yourself by smacking a slightly
    undersized socket onto each of them and remove,this has worked previously
    for me so shud be ok.

    My vauxhall one broke too. Took me loads of time to get all 4 off, socket never seems to feel right in the nut.

    Brought some from local autoparts place, they are called rally x , they are chrome finished and the socket and nuts are splined and they fit superbly. Only 14.99 too.
