You need a special socket for this operation. Check your glove box or tire change kit where jack & spare tire are located. If you can't find it, go to your Toyota dealer & purchase the socket. Hope this helps. Please recommend this advice if it does help. Thanks

I had that problem before. If you have the key for them, the key can be attached to an air impact wrench which pushes in as in turns. This will protect the key and help get the lugs off. If you lost the key sometimes there is a ring on the keychain with an ID#.

If the locks are factory sets, then the dealer may have copies or can run your VIN# to match them. If you really can't use a lock key then there are several ways to take them off without hurting the wheel.

1. Grind 2 flat spots 180 degees apart and try to use a wrench or Vise-grip plier to turn them off.
2. Weld a nut to the end of the Wheel lock and then use a socket to back them out.
3. You may have to replace the stud for each wheel lock if the grinding cuts the stud.
4. Remember that the wheel is way more expensive than the locks. Would like to hear what worked for you.

Reset tire th


It's also a good idea to reset the tire pressure sensors when you air up the tires. If I remember correctly, you click the odometer/trip meter switch until it flashes TIRE RESET (or something similar) then press the button and hold it for a few seconds. That way it sets itself to the pressure in the tires at the moment, and if it notices a pressure drop it puts up a warning.
