Audi Locking Wheel Nut Set Including Locking Bolts, Locking Wheel Nut Key, Dust Caps and Dust Cap Removal Tool

The image above shows an entire set of AUDI locking wheel bolts along with the matching AUDI locking wheel bolt key. The black caps are dust covers used to protect the locking wheel bolts once they're placed on the wheel and the small plastic pincer is the removal tool used to extract the caps from the bolts once they have been fitted. This tool is placed around the head of each cap, so that they can be removed to reveal the locking wheel bolts behind. If you don't have the dust cap removal tool any other small object such as a screwdriver can do the job just as well.


The image below shows an example of one of the current range of AUDI Locking Wheel Bolts. This locking wheel bolt style is found on AUDI vehicles; typically > Post 2012. There are many different combinations of AUDI locking wheel bolts available. Each locking wheel bolt has a different keyed pattern on the head of the bolt which the matching locking wheel nut key fits into. As a secondary security measure, these later designed AUDI locking wheel bolts also have a rotating collar/washer which prevents a thief from gripping the locking wheel bolt. This ensures that the locking wheel bolt can only be removed with the correct matching AUDI locking wheel nut key.


We require the image to be taken close-up and straight-on, similar to the image below, so that we can see the security pattern on the face of the bolt clearly. The AUDI locking wheel bolt key engages into this security pattern.
