Re: Ithaca People I need a wheel key (Dubbin_vr6)

OK the key is lost, gone, stolen. I know where its supposed to be and tore my car apart looking for it. Do you have one?

I've heard there are a variety of different wheel keys available for the MKIV (as many as 20
) You might be better off going to the dealer and see if they have one in stock.

I know at this hour it won't be much help, but VW service departments have a set of masters. They let me use theirs to remove my locks so I could use the regular bolts until the one I ordered came in.

there 10 different ones, so you cant just use anyone (makes sense right?) there $15 dollars at the dealer, or they will loan you one.

If you must and it's an emergency, hammer a slightly smaller socket onto the lock and take it off. Works like a charm. You'll probably have to buy a new lug bolt though.
PS- For those that are scared that people will know how to remove locks now because I said something, give it a rest. This is old news. If they want your wheel, they WILL get your wheel.

Besides, if they're gonna go thru that much trouble for a wheel, they're probably going to take the whole freakin car!

If you got a plastic sheath for the flimsy tire iron, see if there's a small pocket with the wheel lock key in it.

The dealer has a set of all of them (they showed me the kit and there were 20). Go to a dealer and have them take it off for you.
