How to Remove Wheel Locks without Key BMW

We'll start by stating the obvious and suggest digging through any number of places to try and find the wheel lock to save yourself the time and risk of damaging the parts of your BMW. However, if you find yourself at the end of the rope and need to remove the wheel locks before your service appointment, here are some tips that can come in handy.

The first thing you need to do is get a socket close in size and barely fits over the top; either a shorter style or a deep well socket works. After it is placed securely, you'll need to hammer it on as far as you can.

Then, you'll need to take a breaker bar; you might need to use an adapter on the breaker bar stick. Put the parking brake on to prevent the vehicle from rocking back and forth and start spinning the breaker bar stick to pull out the lug nut.

If you find yourself wondering, "do I really need wheel locks?" The answer is yes. Steering wheel locks not only prevent the wheel from moving, but they also serve as a visual deterrent, deterring automotive criminals. They make it significantly more difficult for car thieves to take your car, causing them to look elsewhere.
