Hello All and Happy New Year,

I just figured out that the locking key for my wheel bolts is missing or rather I have the wrong one. I have attached pictures of the bolts on the wheels. They have 9 'V' type grooves. On the first picture (the one with the wooden flooring) is the key I have found in the car and it does not fit.
Can anyone help me find a key for them?

Here in the US I just purchased a set of FARAD wheel locks from Moddedeuros.com that claim to be the OEM star locks. Here is a link that appears to be in the UK: faradworld.com. My new set came with a 4 digit code, maybe look in your manual or the sticker identify what the car came with standard.

As above posts are correct...

OP face palms in corner of room.... :ROFLMAO:

You can ditch those black plastic VW bolt covers & get the nut shaped ones from Skoda which fit & require the plastic "tongs" to remove...to prevent future "oh god how do I get that off?"....

Thank you so much for your replies. I was thinking about taking it to the dealership to find out. I am attaching a few pictures for anyone in the future with similar queries.
