Lost the key for my lug nuts

Hey guys, one of my employees helped me change my tire the other day and I think he left the key in the lock lug. It must have fallen off when I was driving. What the heck am I gonna do. Does the dealership have a master key, or are they going to juice me and make me order one? I have new lugs for my summer rims, so I just want them to remove the lug and I can replace with my new set.

Figure out who made the wheel locks and order another identical set from them. Some good shops or dealers have a set of keys laying around so they don't have to dig through glove boxes.

Get a slightly undersized socket and bang it on and remove Lug. Works every time...

I would go to a wheel/tire shop, they have sockets for all types of lock keys. It happened to me once and they only charged me $10.

If they are bmw locks go to the parts counter and see if you can get a new set with a new (same) key, there cheap maybe 40.00

A silly question but are you sure it hasn't been put in the 'hidden' drawer in the centre console (my dealer does this as it fits perfectly in there) ?




These aren't my pics ...it's just to show you where the hidden drawer is...

Its not in that secret drawer, I put my rings in there when I go to the gym! I gotta check and see if the dealer will remove it. I have the new lugs to install anyway.
