    Is this an OEM locking nut?! Lost the key!

    As above. Finally get everything to do my rear brakes and find my locking nut key has gone missing! Argh. Looks original, it's got 10 (I think) grooves to the inside.

    Yeah looks OEM just smash a big allen key or spline bit into it and get a breaker bar on it.

    Or if differant OEM keys will fit get to your local audi/vw scrappers see if they have any that will fit.

    I got mine done at a local tyre bods.

    I think it cost me £10 for all four removed and four non-locking bolts fitted.
