anyone had any successful experience using the tools that halfords sell to remove mcgard standard locking wheel bolts?

damaged the key after attempting to loosen an over tightened bolt and struggling to find any local garages that can do it, doubt the AA would come out either.

cheers!

Had the same problem last week. Went too put a set on, whilst putting them 4th the key just changed shape. Luckily it was not too damaged, a hammer and alot of force pushing against the key and they came off.
Took them back to halfrauds the next and got a refund.

You can always drill them out or ask around for this tool

Good luck!

glad you got a refund

a garage ended up getting 3/4 bolts out - enough to put winter tyres on the front at least :)

noticed the AA use that tool, probably give them a ring when they aren't as busy.
