    Locking wheel nut cover

    Hi,

    Today whilst giving my car a much needed clean, I was cleaning one of the wheels and came across a locking nut cap was missing.

    So I wondered if someone had tried taking my wheel or do these caps have a tendency to come off?

    Also can I purchase this single locking nut cap from the dealership?

    Thanks
    Picked up on the 30th May!

    Yes you can order them from Audi for about 30p

    They also do them in anthracite, on the website. Mine have never come lose and are very tight need to use the little tool in the boot to get them off.
