Locking Wheel Nut Issue

Post by joethomas1 » Sun Jan 12, 2020 4:24 pm

Hi all!

I've got a massive headache due to the good ol' locking Wheel nuts (15 plate C4 Cactus)

So I Bought the car from a family ran garage who knew the Nut key was missing so agreed to pay my local Citroen dealer for a new one! I stupidly checked the key against the back left corner and hey it fitted so drove away.

Now, after wanting to change the tyres I have come into an issue.. The front (Both)wheels are not bloody working with the key. Visually the nuts are identical in terms of where the pins are meant to drop and only visual difference is the nuts on the back two corners are offset and raised so the key drops in. However with the front two they seem to be flush with the rest of the Nut so not allowing to key to drop in.

Sorry for the rant.. hope I made sense and I have pics of the bolts to help. The garage provided me details of a place that can take em off for me as last resort if needed at a charge of £27.5 each. Any ideas before I just bite the bullet?
