    2009 E61 520d - Locking Wheel Nut Removal

    Guys - can anyone recommend someone to remove my locking wheel nuts near Maidstone Kent? The key nut sheared inside but not only that one of the actual locking nuts have fallen apart on the car. Tyre fitter says they have been over tigthened.
    The car is booked to go to the stealers on Wednesday but am looking for a cheaper alternative?
    Thanks

    Take a socket that is slightly smaller and whack it on with a hammer then it should unbolt easier

    Failing that, there are kits available on ebay to remove them (which makes having lockers pretty pointless if anyone can buy the bloody things to remove them, but still...)
