Hub Cap Key

Hi, I'm Laura and I drive a 2003 Megane Dynamique 1.6 bought in November 2006.

Reading through some previous threads I realise that I don't have a great technical knowledge of cars but I have just been quoted 37euro for a new hub cap key from my local Renault garage and was hoping that someone out there would have the technical name for it so that I can try and some elsewhere a little cheaper!

Thanks in advance

by hub cap key do you mean the cap in the centre of the wheels?

if it's just the key you're needing it'll probably have to be ordered from renault so it matches up with the caps on the wheels because they're all slightly different

No the keys are all the same one fits all, the locking wheel nuts are different, hub cap keys not a bad name for it!! You can unscrew the with a pair of long nose pliers, i do because the customer never has it with them!
