    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.

    Got em off with the Laser tool from Halfords for about 15 quid, just make sure u have an impact driver and vice to remove the bolt from the socket!

    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.
