    No locking wheel nut key! Help!

    Just discovered I don't have the key for my wheel nuts, the place that was going to swap my wheels said they looked like original Audi ones and I could probably get a new one from Audi, they are a kind of splined design, think the opposite of a drive shaft and you get the idea.

    Does anyone have a picture of their original Audi fit to see if they're the same or any ideas where I can get one?

    I don't have original Audi ones myself so no photo - but I did have this problem and my local Audi dealer had a master set. They sorted me out a new one.
    They'll also be able to tell you straight away if it's Audi lockers or not....

    yeah, the splined bolt is the audi one, i have them on my car. so Audi should be able to sort you out if you want to keep them....or just do as i and many others have with the socket and get a new set

    think there are 5 or 6 differnet keys, bit naff really but any locking wheel nut can be removed fairly easily.
