Mechanic lost my wheel lock socket key...It's a "SIMBOLZ" type 4 prong. I found one from a friend that has a '90 750IL. His looks the same but it's not deep enough. This is urgent, no one can remove mine, dealer doesn't have any, they said they'll damage my wheel trying to "chisel" it out. I have a '92 525i. If anyone thinks they have a matching one please reply, I'll give you the numbers in the box to see if it matches yours....I need to borrow one, I'll pay for all shipping and handling and some extra bucks if you want. This is urgent, my rear left tire is showing some cord so it's about to go flat soon and I won't have a way to remove my wheel.
Thanks

If you cant wait try Americas Tires They should have a Snap On wheel lock removal set that will destroy your lock but get it off without damaging the wheel.

Tried the removal tool...wouldn't work due to the shape of lug bolt I have. I've tried two different types already, also tried the Gator Grip socket, came close but not deep enough to engage the 4 pin cut-outs on the bolt. Still looking....
