Default Wheel Lock

I managed to break my key to my wheel locks. I went to Hyundai to try and get a replacement key, but they couldn't help me. They have a master key, but wanted to charge me $50 to unscrew 4 lug nuts. This may be a long shot, but does anyone here have a wheel lock MGard with patent #4,664,000 and wouldn't mind me using it to unscrew the nuts on my car. I can meet you anywhere in Edmonton.

Same thing happened to me...although they didn't quote me any price. I ended up being able to use my broken key and a lot of patience and was able to get them out. Threw them in the garbage i think..

Options i saw at the time was obviously to buy a new key. On my key lock package there was a an envelope and a a form to fill in to request. Wasn't to expensive i think but i can't remember how much it was. This might be your best bet..

The other thing i thought was to use this method lol... http://http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mJUUyjJqk5A

I found the Lock ID card and I'll order a replacement tomorrow morning. When I get it, I'm unscrewing the locks and throwing it in the garbage. Thing is more of a hassle than anything else.

The youtube video does not work, invalid link.

I've been told that there are 30-40 different types of the key.
