    Lost Locking Wheel Nut - what to do??

    i have seen on youtube you can use a socket to squeeze over the nut, smash it on to grip, and try to release

    thanks

    Try tyre shops like KwikFit, ATS etc as they sometimes have master keys or a few to choose from.
    I don't suppose you know your letter code to see if you can get one on eBay ?

    Hi and thanks! I've just ordered four more locking nuts so the garage can take these off and replace with these new ones.

    I don't know what the the letter code would be or where to get it?

    It's stamped into the key (which you don't have) but would also have been in the original handbook for the vehicle with the radio code.

    No, it's just a single letter.
    It would be specific to your car so in an individual card or sticker.
