Lost wheel lock key to my car

hi all,
I recently found out that I lost wheel lock key to my car.


I tried to google it to see if any one sell the key lock and the majority pointed back to acura website.
I'm so feed up with this wheel lock. I won't use it anymore because it is useless anyway. If someone takes 3 lug nuts, the car is pretty much not driveable anyway.
Is anyone in the Massachusetts area willing to help? I just need to borrow the key lock for 5 minutes to remove the wheel locks and replace them with the regular wheel lug.
Thanks.

Try using one of those rounded socket kits at auto stores for a stripped nut and it should take it off. OR

most wheel places have the kit to remove the nut and probably won't charge much $20 max to take all 4 off. You can hammer on a socket and try to get it off, or chisel a slot and get it off that way. Mcguard is the company that makes the lock and I doubt they can sell a replacement key with just a picture of the lock (without the lock card they won't know the pattern unless they can identify it by picture).

Get yourself a set of aftermarket locks or factory lugs and you'll be set.

Either the Acura dealer lost my lock, or I never had it on the RDX...


I had my Honda dealer break off the locks and give me all matching lugs...


Ain't no one stealing OEM 18" 2007 RDX wheels anynore...


One less thing to worry about if I get a flat too!

Agreed. Unless you live in the hood, your wheels are safe.

Lost mine, replaced the 4, and promptly found my key after replacing. Still, best decision I made.

I'm not sure if they came standard or were an option. All I know is the 4 originals weren't anywhere in the car. (I bought a demo with 500 miles).

Autozone has emergency wheel lock remover, I tried it but didn't work.
The next option is TownFair tire. I'll stop by and see what they can do.

I stop by Town Fair Tires and they have a box of master keys.
Lucky for me one of the fits so we removed all 4 key locks and install the lug nuts free of charge.
I'm throwing these wheel locks in the trash.
Thanks guys.

McGard helped me

I had a similar issue after I purchased my TL back in April. The wheel lock key was missing. I telephoned McGard and they told me to send a photo. About an hour later a rep called me back and said she was 90% sure she had the right one for my car. For $16.99 they sent a new one and it fit. You can always return it and take it to the dealer, but its worth a try. The number is (716) 662-8980. Good luck !
