    locking wheel nut removal HELP !!

    My locking wheel nut key has snapped, went to local Vauxhall to day and the number on the box is not the correct key number, and also no number inside the box.

    They have a master set but only half of them and guess what it does not fit mine.

    Any ideas on how to remove them, as they are different from the old honda/ford ones that I have removed in the pas as the collars spin

    TIA

    if its got a spinning collor then your gonna have fune mate i had this problems last year when i got a flat tyre and lost the bloody key in the end i welded a bar to each of them to get them off

    forget drilling them out and banging on a socket

    TBH tho i would take to a local tyre fitter as they would be the best place to get the f**kers off

    you can do it in about 5mins to 1hour most of the time with no/little damage to the wheel
    I will tell you on the phone and no welding is done

    i snapped the collor off one of mine recently.. took it to a local garage with a wheel gun and they got it off straight away.. took a wheel gun with enough torque to take lorry and coach bolts off as the normal car one wouldnt do it

    Kwik-fit wanted 20quid to use the proper emergency removal kit

    im not telling you to do this as it isnt safe 1 bit and it may be a stupid idea. if you was to remove all the other wheel bolts and drive back and forward and pressing the brakes, would it nt loosn it off slightly enough to grip a pair of long nose pliers or similar into the teeth where the original locking wheel nut sits and unscrew it? as said above im not sugesting you do this. its just some crazy idea thats came into my head lol

    well, having the weight of that corner of the car on one bolt could be enough to snap the bolt in two and then he would be in the shit
