Most of the lock nuts are made of normal steel so get a socket that will "just" not fit and drive it on the nut well . Talk with a tyre shop as they use this process on a regular basis to remove tyres for people who have your problem. Use a bar or rattle gun and the nut will come off . Replace all the lock nuts with units that you can get a lock nut adaptor for

SOURCE: i have a stripped lug nut and a stripped locking

If you have a socket you are willing to destroy, Find a socket that is as close to the size of the lug nut, but not bigger. Whack it on with a hammer, use a socket wrench (with enough leverage) to remove the lug. Locking nut: Find a socket that is about the same size as the lock nut, follow steps above. **This only works with the star shaped lock nuts and the ones that "key" goes into.

The fuse is No.3 "DR locks" (near steering wheel)
If you take the fuse out the doors will not open itselves.

The root cause of the problem will be a microswitch inside the drivers door?

SOURCE: the tire and rim are stuck on the truck. They

It's a common problem when moister gets between tire tire and the hub. I see it all the time in my shop. Just put one lugnut back on loose and give the tire a good kick. That's the trick that works for me. :)

How to remove locking lug nuts without a key.

Most auto supply stores ( NAPA ) will carry a socket that is designed to remove wheel locks. You may have to bang the socket on with a hammer and sometimes the nuts are hard to remove from the socket once taken off the car, but it works

Is a lug nut lock the device that lets you remove the last lug nut? We have lost the tool that does this and are not sure how to get another one. AAA does not have it.

well it is called a lock lug nut tool or socket depends if they are factory or aftermarket. they some times have them at the dealer and they do make a lock lug nut removal tool kit that we use to remove them. we do AAAand carry them in our trucks just for this purpose.

I lost my key to remove lugnut lock. How can i remove it without lock key

You could use an angle grinder to make a flat notch in the top of the lug nut, right across the key pattern. Then use a large impact rated flat blade tip in an impact or other wrench. Depending on the length of the locking lug and how far it sticks out, you could try clamping on vice grip pliers and using a pipe or tube as a breaker bar on them. These tools can be obtained inexpensively from HarborFreight.

Of course, your dealer can provide a new lug nut lock for your car. Just give them your vin number, provided that the same locks that came with the car are on it now.

Hope this helps!

Lost lug nut key

If you lost the key to a locking lug nut, most tire shops can remove them for a small fee. There is a tool that you can buy to do it yourself. It should be availoable at most auto parts stores or tool supply stores. I have also used "impact" sockets that I have forced over the lug with a sledge hammer.

Where is lug nut key on 2009 cobalt

stock cobalts do not come with locking lug nuts from the factory, therefore the lugnuts on your car were put on aftermarket or from the dealer. as far as the key goes they could have put it anywhere, or not have given you one at all.

any discount tire store sells lug nut keys for about $5, just take them your car and they will sell you a key.

We seem to have lost the wheel lock key. How do we get a replacement or what are our other options?

The dealer would be the only place to get an original replacement. Or you could take a, in my case it was a 13/16" 12 point 1/2" drive socket, tap it on the keyed lug nut and brake it loose with a braker bar. You may need a different size depending on your lug size.
