2013 DS5 Wheel nut Key

Post by Bucknodd »

I've just got my DS5 and am missing the locking key for the wheels. Which is the correct one as there seem to be a few kicking about on a certain website and Citroen want £90 for a new one!

2 Choices:

1) The keys are unique to each set - so if you've lost yours, then you'll need to get them forcibly removed and either replaced with another set or:
2) Remove them all and replace the locking bolts with standard bolts and do away with them.

Thanks Marc, looks like a removal set and a new set are going to be bought!

You can buy a standard set of special alloy wheel bolts for about £15 for 4 to replace the locking ones.

A tyre fitter may do this for you - requires drilling out usually if they can't get them off.

If you want a new set of locking bolts, have a look here - you may get some aftermarket or genuine ones for less:

A set of genuine Citroen ones here for £42:
