Introduction

If you have a wheel lock (wheel nut lock) on your car or truck wheel and do not have a wheel lock key, use this guide to remove the wheel lock.

A wheel lock is used to fasten the wheel on your vehicle, as a regular wheel nut would, but uses a part-specific key to unlock it. It is common to lose a wheel lock key. The wheel lock key can be removed manually.

Before beginning, make sure your vehicle is on a flat surface and all wheels are level. Make sure to have your emergency brake (parking brake) on as well.
