Hi all, has anyone lost lost their key/socket for removing the locking lug nuts? Is their an easy path forward? Bought the tc used, the key is missing and no one is claiming responsible. The dealer(s) say its aftermarket which the Internet says they are not. Sold as is, so they don't feel like dealing with it. Tires changed prior to previous owner trading in- Costco says "we have a box of those keys- just come down and see if yours is here" but they are 5-6 hrs away. So fare the g/f has taken this to several tire shops with no luck. The dealer(s) are clueless which blows my mind. They indys offer to drill out the stud. They tried welding to the nut after breaking off the alloy acorn, no luck. Dealership says we would need some code to replace it and that takes weeks. And we have no code... Space between the locking nut and rim is too tight for any standard socket or removal socket to get in there. So any tool needs to be specific or real close tolerances. Thoughts? Mysterious tools I'm overlooking? Black magic? ...anything??? thanks, it's really frustrating and although this is to put winter tires on...if it were a flat I'd be beside myself at this point... dan
