Locking Wheel Nut Removal

Why Is The Key Important and Where Can I Find It?

Each key is unique to each car’s wheels, so it’s important that you know where yours is and that you keep it safe. They are often stored in a plastic box with other spare wheel nuts or in a little bag; either in the glove box or in the boot where a spare wheel would be.

Locking Wheel Nut Removal Without The Key

If you can’t seem to find your locking wheel nut key, if you’ve misplaced it, bought a car without one provided, or if your key’s been damaged, don’t worry – in most cases we can still remove your existing locking wheel nut using a specialist piece of equipment that we have here at the garage. There is a small charge for this service, but it does mean that we can carry out any work that’s required even without the key.

What Are Locking Wheel Nuts, And A Wheel Nut Key?

As this article from CarWow affirms, most cars today have locking wheel nuts – devices used by car manufacturers to keep a vehicle’s wheels secured to it. The locking wheel nut on each wheel is used as well as standard wheel nuts, and they are a great safety feature, but their presence does mean that we have to add an extra step to our procedures – locking wheel nut removal – before we can carry out any work that calls for the wheels to be removed from the vehicle (tyre fitting, wheel balancing, or switching between summer and winter tyres, for example). And in order to perform that step of locking wheel nut removal, we will need the key to the locking nut(s). Here’s an example of how they can look.
