    Drill them out or pilot a hole in them and use some eazy outs to get it out. I believe Halfords actually sell a tool to get them off also.

    Are They The One's With A Metal Ring Around Them That Spins??

    If So The Ring Will Come Off With A Big Flat Screw Driver
    Then Knock A Slightly Smaller Socket Over It. Ratchet On Socket Turn Slowely Should Work

    Hope This Helps???

    Have you checked the cubby holes in the boot for the first aid kit etc.

    I found mine tucked away in there on my new car.

    Take it to the dealer mate. They have blow moulded plastic cases with all the masters in. Lot cheaper than having to buy a new set. Also, if you haven't got the number for the wheel nut socket, the dealer can identify the number at the same time when they find the one in the master set that fits. Then you can order the new one whilst you're there. Sorted
