    Question Help - Remove locking wheels nuts of 2007 SRI

    I don't have the locking wheel nut removing key, I have a 2007 SRI and cannot tell if the locking wheel nuts have the rotating outer or not. I see a line at almost the edge of the nut face but am unsure if it rotates.

    I have bought and tried the Laser locking wheel nut remover sockets but they seem to grip slightly and then let go, anyone tried to do this and achieved it?

    Do you have the case in which the old bolts in? Reason I ask is it should have a code and you could just order a new key from Vx?

    The only other way I removed some crappy ones before was by getting a local garage to spot weld a bolt onto the lock nut and then undo it.

    Had them on my car when I bought it, the nut remover was missing. Local garage used a small chisel and lump hammer, mullered the edges in an anti clockwise way and loosened them that way.

    I will try the chisel method to remove the outer ring and see where that leads me.
