Anyone has any ideas on how to remove VW wheel locks without the key? My original key stripped. I bought another and it also stripped. I tried the 7/8 12 point socket trick but it didn't work. Beside drilling or burning I can think of any other way to get them off.
Thank you. Ill have to pick that stuff up and hope for the best.
Try something like this https://www.lowes.com/pd/IRWIN-BOLT-GRIP-5-Pack-Bolt-Extractor-Set/1000363541 (https://www.lowes.com/pd/IRWIN-BOLT-GRIP-5-Pack-Bolt-Extractor-Set/1000363541)
I don't know how the VW lock works, but I had luck using the Gator Grip socket https://low.es/2UEn7RX to remove a locking set a few years back.
Thank you for the idea. That's just about what I was doing with the 7/8 socket.
