    Lost Locking Wheel Nut Key

    As above, can't find it anywhere and I have a puncture

    I've tried putting a bigger socket over it to find that the key nut has a protection from this - a collar that turns round lol (clever Audi !)

    I've looked on Ebay and noticed that they do sell them, but the description states different 'key code letter's'. The ones on ebay being Q and S - how am I to know which one I need?

    The nut in question look's just like this:

    $(KGrHqN,!qUFI,VsbzydBSR(VdoTmQ~~60_12.JPG

    I know Halfords sell a nut removal - a socket with a reverse thread that cuts into the nut, but i'm not sure it'll fit.

    Help please guy's!

    Take your photo to Audi and they will pick one of the shelf. I had the same problem with my previous car ;-)

    What sort of price would I be looking at?

    Would they have the info on what I need with just my reg plate?

    I had to get one from Audi 2 years ago...cost me £12 for the locking nut but i took my car in. They might be a bit dubious with just a photo. Take your logbook/V5 with you and some ID.
