Locking Wheel Nuts Key Missing

when i bought my lex, it didn't come with a key so i had to get them cut out. the

cost me altogether 65 pounds with the new set.

then i find out that retain-a-group (the phone number should be on your car window) had the code for a replacement key.

lexus hatfield seemed to have forgot to mention that this company could help.

actually thats the only problem i've had with them .

but then again, like you say that the alloys are not the original, maybe where you bought them may be able to help.

Maz, think it was either Fluff or Tony Goose who said they had removed some locking wheel nuts using one of those universal bits with all the teeth?

Halfords sell a very scary thing called a locking wheel nut removel kit.

it fits over the nut with a reverse thread and bites onto the outside of it :crying::crying::crying:

Gator Grip

This is the one that will get off most types of locking nuts with ease.

just in case you lose the key again, or if anyone does, i am told that the key should have a number on it.

from that another key can be made.
