Re: key for wheel bolts - mines lost..... :( (JohnnyDii)

Try it and see if his fits yours. If not, i dont know what to tell you. Volkswagen doesnt sell that key either. Ive already checked with them.

what i did was throw away the anti-theft lugnuts

thats what i did after i pulled them off but that was after i lost my key as well.....my advice would be to try and ask the service dept. if they could help you out.if not,there is only 10 different configurations if i remember correctly so if your bro's dont work see if there is anyone else local and try theirs.the last 2 choices would be buy the kit from http://zelenda.com/VW/page5.html ,about halfway down, or bring it to a shop and let someone "make" something like i did to get them out.

Re: (JohnnyDii)

the 20ths should have the same set but again there is about 10 different versions so the odds are not with you that its the one you need but its definately worth a shot http://****************.com/smile/emthup.gif

Re: (got_boost)

there are 12 different styles of locking keys/bolts. When this happened to me I drove around to about 13 used car lots that had VW's and tried them all out...no luck. So I went to the dealer and asked the mechanics just to take them out and give me regular bolts, they have a little kit with all the different configurations. They did that and I was on my way...no issues with anyone trying to steal my rims yet
