    Miss Breakdown's answer is the correct one. Try reading it.
    He could "possibly" inject some "gunge" and see if that inflates the tyre.

    Walshy252,

    Have you still got the original wallet with all the security codes in it? That may give you the key code for the locking wheel nut key, possibly? Or, the locking wheel nut key may be in the tool bag for the car. look in the spare wheel compartnment, if I were you.

    Absolute bo##ocks Dennis. The more you say the worse it gets. Have a read of the post again. The key is DAMAGED. Get it?

    "whereby the locking wheel nut key for my Peugeot 207 is damaged and is therefore unable to grip the nut. The car is currently at work with a flat tyre, which I have no hope of changing over myself as the locking nut is fixed in place."

    Now, tell me why you cannot read and understand this?

    For future reference, I phoned the two local tyre shops, and they assure me they would come out locally to remove the 'duff' nut. Waiting time would depend on how busy they are, and they could charge around 40. So if you are ever in a similar situation, might be worth a try. There are some companies that promise 24hr tyre service, but haven't a clue how much they would charge to come out to the M25 at 2am in the rain!

    Hi, take a look at www.lockingwheelnutsremoved.com , they came out to me and removed 2 locking nuts that had been totally destroyed (but not removed) by a garage. They guarantee to get them off.

    The cost was 50 for all four wheels. He would have come to me but charge mileage so I drove down to him on a Saturday morning.
    It's a bigger problem than you realise until you need them off. On the side of the road it would be impossible. A guy with a Jag having nuts removed before me had traveled up from Chepstow.

    Jon.
