- Visit a Dealership: Most dealerships have a master key set for wheel locks, especially if your locks are factory-installed. They can remove the lock for you, often replacing them with standard lug nuts.
- Hammer and Socket Method: This involves hammering a 12-point socket onto the wheel lock and then using an impact wrench or breaker bar to remove it. Be aware that this method might damage the socket.
- Bolt Extractor: A bolt extractor set can be used to grip and turn the wheel lock. This method is less likely to damage surrounding areas.
- Welding: For a more hands-on approach, you can weld a nut or bolt to the wheel lock and then use a wrench to remove it.
- Nut Splitter Tool: If you have enough clearance around the wheel lock, a hardened tool-steel nut splitter can be an effective solution.
