Lost my locking wheelnut

Post by daytona650 » Fri Feb 14, 2020 2:46 pm

:evil:

What an idiot.

I did the rear pads last week, then left the wheelnut key in the one wheel and went to bed the pads in. It's gone :roll:

I dont have a note of the key details either.

Anyone else had this issue and if so, what did you do to resolve the matter.

Thanks in advance..

Sigh. :oops:

Have a look in the manual wallet.
They often put the keycode thing in the pocket in there.
Otherwise a dealer should be able to help using your vin.

Easily done. I've looked into this before and I think the last letter on the build sheet for the wheels is letter for the locking wheel nut key.
If you PM me your reg I'll have a look.

Hi,
Also had this issue.
Jaguar dealers have a master set and can then order the correct set.
Only problem is you have to buy a whole new set.

Good luck

Yep, done the same thing in the past. Fortunately it had come off about 400 yards from where I started and found it lying in the gutter. Phew!

My jaguar indy is going to have a go at removing them when i go in for service in April, otherwise i'll have to get bent over at the dealers sadly. My own fault :evil:

I’m sure you can just go to dealership with V5 and ID and they order a new key. No drama required
