    Can anyone help me out? Need a locking wheel nut socket.

    The lovely chaps at my local tyre centre have managed to bugger up my locking wheel nut socket by using it on their air drill and I cant get my wheels off now. Ive telephoned my local Audi centre but they want between 10 to 35 for a replacement and Im not prepared to pay that ridiulous amount just for a socket!

    Im just wondering if anyone has a spare or one they no longer need that they would be willing to sell to me, its code Y?

    many thanks.

    They saw you coming. I only paid 11.95 for a new key for mine a little while ago.

    Has the tyre centre admitted their fault? If so then get them to replace the nuts.

    I had a similar problem a couple of months back. I'd had the car serviced and they'd overtightened the wheel nuts. I could shift the normal ones but the locking nuts were slightly rounded off. They managed to get them off eventually with their air wrench and they replaced them with a set of McGuards.

    I cant prove it though and I certainly cant be bothered argueing the case with them. My local Audi dealer has ordered one for me and said he would charge me 26 for it.

    You can purchase a spare / replacement VAG wheel locking nut key from www.zakparts.com - cheaper than the dealers prices!
