    Not sure, i would recommend taking your car to a Jag Dealer or Indie and see if they have a master key which most main dealers have and get them to remove the nuts. I have read threads on the forum some have done it cheaply some extortionate. My Wheel locking nut split when a tyre centre using a compressor gun changing a tyre. Had to take the car to my local JAG indie who had to chisel the locking nuts off. I then ordered a new set of Jag nuts and a locking Key from S&B wheels in Birmingham. Took a note of the locking key code

    ta mate already tried that , one dealership was open for telephone calls and was told they will e mail me ? , i would have thought jag would have the code letter on file for each car . I hear they dont/ wont sell single key only key and nut set , as u said they will and do have a master set to remove the old ones to fit the new ones but unlikely to tell u which master key they used to remove old set incase u go else where to buy a single key

    Do you have a local Jag Indie near where to live, Jagautos Liverpool got mine off by chisel, to be honest i think about not putting a locking nut on if it happens again. Have you tried a decent locking nut removal tool. When my tyre centre split my locking nut key, they new someone who has never failed getting them off, he couldn't get mine off after a good hour of trying, hence taking the car to me indie

    Bit of a long shot but...

    Remember your wheel nut will be a mirror image of the key.

    It sometimes helps to use a big blob of blutac or similar to make a 'mold' of the wheel nut, you can then use this to compare to the images to help narrow it down ?
