    This was the locking wheel nut bit i got when i bought the car a couple of weeks ago, but It doesnt fit, just spins, does anyone in the midlands have a bit that would fit in this nut so i can change it over for a non locking nut?

    It's the only locking wheel nut on the car and I'm gonna be doing my brakes soon, plus if i got a puncture on this tire i'd be screwed lol

    Cheers
    Matt

    Its matched to the car mate, Other thing to do is get a grage to remove the nuts and buy some more. Or just run without locking nuts, obv replaced with a standard one

    I'm not sure this is original though, I have 4 normal nuts on all the other wheels, its like this one has been left on cus they dont have the bit to remove it.

    Just wondering if anyone has a bit that matches so they could undo it for me...i've got a spare normal wheel nut ready to go on

    But all locking nuts are specific to the car

    Going by the marks on the wheel I'd guess they had issues too.
