Hi I have a VW POLO which I bought second hand....It didn't come with the nut/key to get the alloy wheels off. What can I do?!

Have you contacted the previous owner?
If it's the original locks, you should be able to get them from VW.
Or get them smashed off at a garage (probably about £40), and then buy new locks.

No chance really of contacting the previous owner, it was an auction sale. Will try VW although it's unlikely I feel..

Not really, VW cars pretty much all use a standard lock.

Yeah are they actually locking nuts? I would definitely try VW because if it's a standard lock then i'm pretty sure they'll be able to sort you out

Well if worse comes to the worst, find another Polo owner and ask them for their key...see if that works.
