    Afternoon Guys,

    Just discovered my locking wheel nut key is missing. The type of locking wheel nuts I have looks like this: -

    Would this one from Halfords do the job of removing? Car isn't driveable so can't take down to my local garage.

    These are just standard Audi one's. Audi should be able to remove it, or find a friend with an Audi running original wheels, he should have one of these locks.

    As said above... i was told there are 3 possible keys ( no idea if its true ) but i bet just about any VAG based original key will fit
