Thanks Faltwen, I was expecting something a bit more secure, but I suppose one char is good enough. I did take a couple of nuts off, but no code that I could see, mind you they were a bit corroded/scraped on the surface already.

The other way is to buy a cheap socket from halfrauds or Amazon, bash it on to the locking nut (being a cheap socket it will mould to the shape of the nut) and remove it (repeat for each wheel) then buy yourself a new set with key.
Had to do that on a Merc not so long ago as they wanted £600 to remove and replace them, thieving b*rstewards.
