2012 VW Touareg

Hi guys,

I'm trying to replace my FR speed sensor on my Treg but I can't get the wheel off because there's a security lock bolt and I've lost the factory removing tool.

Tire Wheel Automotive tire Motor vehicle Alloy wheel


This is how it looks like.

Do you guys know where I can order the removing tool?

There is a company which can send you a new "key" if you send them a photo but you'll need to do your own Googling!

I'd replace the key bolts with normal wheel bolts - they all have covers do no one will know.

Oh really? That's interesting! I better start googling then. And yes, that's exactly my plan once I get these key bolts out.

Chisel off the spinning collar then select a socket that is a tight fit & sledge hammer it on. That's how I removed them on mine.
