    Question Wheel nut key

    Went to take my wheels off and clean them at the weekend, but my locking nut key seems to have disappeared. It's obviously a bit irresponsible to drive around knowing i haven't got it, so what's the best, and cheapest course of action?

    I had this problem on my last Audi. I just went to the main dealer. Providing you have the original bolts in. They have about 20 different keys. They find out which one it is and then order that one. Mine was about £40 though

    Thanks mate. That's actually cheaper than I expected from Audi. I know it was in there 6 months ago when I bought the car, and I haven't taken the wheels off so who knows where it's gone.

    I paid 36 quid from the dealer for a new locking nut and four new locking bolts. It worked out only a couple of quid more with the bolts.

    Thanks for the offer mate, but hopefully I can get the same key from Audi and I won't have to worry about the nuts.
