The normal place is in the styrofoam container inside the spare wheel or in a pouch in the spare wheel well. Since the car is almost 6 years old it might have been misplaced; if so, local tire shops have removal tools or the VW dealer can match a key.

If you got the car new it is attached to your lug wrench. Otherwise it could be in the glove box or any place. It could have been forgotten when someone did tires, rotated tires, or had brakes checked.

Either someone is letting the air out of your tire or it has a leak. Obviously the shops you have taken it to are incompetent if they can't find a leak. A good shop will submerge the tire and rim in a vat of water and look for air bubbles. If you have alloy rims, occasionally the rim may have "porosity" where the air bleeds out thru the center of the rim between the tire beads. A good rim shop will have sealant that is sprayed or brushed on the rim center to seal it.

Changing tire- all the lugs are off but tire will not come off. Is there a key to unlock tire?


If the tire has been on the car for a while it will not just easily come off by removing all of the bolts. Sometime a few swift kicks to the tire will loosen the rim from the car and you will then be able to remove the tire.

besides the rim problem, which he could have corrected by applying bead sealer, the stem could be defective or the rim could be cracked.

to fix a rim leak, clean the area on the tire where the tire meets the rim. make sure there are no nicks or tears along that area. clean the rim along the surface where the tiremeet the rim, no corrosion or debris. apply bead sealer to the cleaned area and mount the tire to the rim and inflate.

to check the tire for leaks, fill a spray bottle with water and add a short squirt of dishwashng liquid. over inflate the tire to about 45psi. remove the tire and lay it flat on the ground. saturate the area where the rim meets the tire. wait awhile to see if bubbles form. repeat for the other side. also spray the valve stem, tread and sidewall area. do this slowly while looking for bubbles, sraying liberally. you might need more soap in the solution depending on the concentration of the dishwashing liquid.

How to change the flat tire? Can not remove tire off the rim. How i get the nuts off?


You're not supposed to remove the tire from the rim like with the bicycle. You take the tire nut wrench, jack and the spare tire from the trunk, loosen the nuts, lift the car up with the jack, take off the nuts and the tire, replace the tire with the spare, skrew back the nuts, lower the car down, tighten the nuts, pack everything back in the trunk, drive to the tire fix shop, get the tire fixed, change it back, keep the spare ready for another punkture.

Tire pressure light remains on.


We took it back to the dealer. They made the necessary adjustments needed after the winter tires +rims were put on.

Sounds like the lugnuts have rust on them inside. Or someone way over tightened them to begin with. The lugnuts come off counter clockwise. The rims on your 92 are aluminum. There is a possibility of the rim is damaged to the point of not working. but the tire shop will know if it's still usable or not. I don't remember an "L" key that came stock on that car though. You may have to get a long cheater bar to break the lugnuts loose.
