Renault Laguna II - locking wheel nut cracked!
evening all! I have a flat tyre on my laguna - all the regular bolts came off with no problem, but when I tried to get the locked one off, the locking wheel nut cracked when I applied pressure (the key that adapts over the nut when placed in the lever - rather than the nut on the tyre). I had a spare - but this cracked too! Now I'm stuck and can't get the tyre off.
I'm about to call a tyre specialist out, but doubt they can do anything with a cracked key - and no doubt Renault will bang me for a fortune for a new one (which will probably also crack). Help! Any assistance gratefully received.
It's a 17" low profile - if that makes any difference.
