Hi, I'm Ray Thomas. I'm the owner of Ray's Auto Repair. I'm going to show you today how to remove wheel lock nuts. I don't usually recommend this to people that are not professional industry, but one of the ways that you can remove is take a chisel, a long one, preferably, and try to hammer the lock in a counterclockwise position. But you got to remember something, most of the wheels are aluminum wheels, so when you do that, you might ruin the wheel. So, this is why we don't recommend it to ordinary people. Now, there's ways to take those wheel locks, not professionally, which means either you contact your dealership and try to get a code so they can order your key if you lost it, or there is special sockets which the after market sells where they make it so you can put it on top of the wheel lock itself and you hammer it in and then you can extract it that way. But you if you're going to try to do it yourself, I would go that route rather than the old method of chisel and a hammer. And this is how you remove wheel lock nuts.
