A little help needed from the Bay Area members.

I just had a flat tire today and I could not find the rim lock keys. Its currently parked at a gas station where hopefully it wont get towed until tomorrow morning.

If any San Jose member out there is gracious enough to let me borrow his for 10 minutes, please let me know.

Thanks.

I don't think that all locks are the same.

I had to have 1 of my lock broken off,the shop took an undersized socket + hammer and wacked it on the lock. It stuck on and them they removed the lock,broke both the socket + lock bolt.

I am not sure if this would work, but you might be able to use a gator grip socket.
Good Luck getting it of, maybe AAA has a trick to help.

I know this is a LONG shot but you may want to call McGard,hopefully they have an emergency line.

http://www.mcgard.com/custserv/

You should have a small little card that was included with your car(hopefully it's in your owner manual),it should have the key code if you ever need to order another one.

I dealt with McGard recently,I emailed an employee a pic of one of my three remaining locks( couldn't find my key card in my manual),they found out what key I needed,sent me it $26 later.

Good Luck!
