    Locking Wheel Nut - Replacement Cost?

    Hi All,

    I can't seem to find the locking wheel nut for my car - not sure I was ever given it and I've never had to take the wheels off yet! However, I'm considering getting the wheels powder-coated soon so in preparation have been looking for the locking nut.

    Anyone had to contact AUDI in the past to replace a locking nut and if so, whats the likely cost involved?

    Cheers

    If I remember correctly, they do not sell them separately, you have to buy a new set.

    Plus, each key is unique, you won't be able to get a replacement i don't think
    Currently driving a 55 plate Ford Mondeo ST. But as Arnie once said...


    I'll be back!!!

    You can get the removal adapter from Audi for about 25 but there are twenty different codes (from 06/04) and you will obviously need to know which one ! You could try and Google the patterns ( I think I've seen them somewhere ) and match one of them to your requirements.

    Just thought Audi may be able to tell the code from your VIN number !
