Locking wheel nut!!

Had an alloy wheel repair 18 months ago under Audi insurance. Booked another one in for last week...no locking wheel nut. Never had cause to remove a wheel since the last repair! I've looked everywhere in the car, including where I think it should be, (the tool roll). Am I missing something obvious? There is no sign of any code number anywhere either! Help!

You mean for security bolt ? I threw it in bin along with 4 security bolts and replaced with ordinary ones.. As I had nightmares to trying to undo them as nut were slipping trying to untight it.. Now no nightmares anymore .. Easily remove all standard 5 bolts with bar and no messing with some pointless locking nut nowadays .

I know when i had a Honda and lost the locking wheel nut key i went to the Honda dealership and they had a box with 20 or so different locking wheel nut keys.

they tried each one until they found the correct key that matched the car and ordered me up a spare.

i would hope Audi has a similar setup. Phone your local dealership for advice.

Haha I knew someone will throw topic about wheels robbing :D
Yeah tell me who does that nowadays? :) that was in old era times boy , D don't worry I know u won't be ***** to jack car at 3AM and stealing curbed wheels
So u see ? U have hard work to find out where the wheels are, then put effort into it and even endup in police hands .. Robbers don't bother nowadays!
For them is easier to nick the whole car in few minutes .. and not fkin about jacking sht using noisy impact driver for 15 mins and by the time police will arrive..

Audi Lincoln did exactly the same for me when I misplaced my locking wheel nut key a few years back. The replacement cost around £30 if I remember correctly.
