missing OEM wheel lock

hey guys,


I was trying to put on my winters this afternoon. Yet, the oem wheel lock is missing from my trunk!!! might left it from the shop where i got my summers from...

Anyhow, Im just wondering if we all have the same wheel lock from factory? If we do... could I borrow it from someone whos close to uptown (north york area)?


thanks,


cheers!!

Send a message via MSN to montreal red
u'll have to post a picture of which lock pattern u have. there are a few different designs.

or you can take it to the dealer. they'll figure it out for you.

Here are the OEM wheel locks for your car. The "key" has a starburst pattern.

good luck finding that wheel lock man, i had a real difficult time getting the dealer to find the right wheel lock in their shop, they have over 60 wheel lock but none of them fit !! fortunately i've end up located my own wheel lock and were able to replaced the flat tire that i had.

just a tips here, my wheel nuts look quite similar to your on the picture, and my services advisor told me that it looks like a X5 wheel nuts (weird i know)..

good luck in your search

Swing by the dealer, as long as you can prove you are the owner etc... they will find your matching wheel lock key.

Any descent shop can get those off without the key. If the dealer is rediculous price out new locks and see how much to get them removed.

Consistent with another poster mine look nothing like yours. Dealer may be useless here.

Have you called the place you got the summers from?

Looks like a McGuard lock not BMW....

http://www.mcgard.com/

They have many many different styles. Good luck on your search. I had a tireshop break my key once and ended up getting a different shop to weld a nut onto wheel lug and pull the wheel off that way. Depending on the wheel style may be very difficult though.

Agreed, most shops and dealers have a universal type key that can get the locks off.

If it is an OEM lock, the dealer should be able to help you get a replacement.

I lost one of mine and the dealer got me a replacement lock no problem.

If you bought your locks from BMW parts, and still have the box, look at the papers inside. There's one that has your wheel lock's specific "number" on it to make replacement (or borrowing) easier.
