    Default Replacement "keys" for Vauxhall wheel bolts?

    Anyone know if dealers keep the full range in stock or will I have to wait for them to be ordered in?

    I've got a puncture and the locking key looks like the internal corners are rounded off so I can't remove the wheel!

    Once I get it off, is there a better aftermarket brand that I can use? I really don't have much faith in these any more.

    You need the key code and they will probably have to order in a new key for you.

    Impact socket and driver may be quicker......

    And in future, don't bother with them mate... Unless you have aftermarket ones or a special aftermarket lock set, they're too much hassle when they go wrong...

    And considering how often some people (like me...) take thier wheels off for cleaning etc, it's a LOT more hassle than it's worth...

    most vx main dealers have a set of masters( not all as i found out when i had a similar problem to you).
    They should be able to remove your old dameged locking bolt. Take your old key with you , helps them id required key
