Lost locking wheel nut key

Hi all, just gone out to do something on the car and somehow I've managed to loose the locking wheel nut key. Are all off the locking wheel nut keys the same for the cooper s or are they all different? Thanks

The locking wheel nut key on the first gen s is in the compartment in the boot on the left hand side in a little tool pack. If its not there tyre fitting places can normally remove locking wheel nuts or you can buy a tool to remove them which you can probably get from halfords or ebay

They are normally a different pattern for each car, and Main agent sometimes has a nut that will remove them, a sort of universal fitting one, so you could ask them to remove them if you cant find yours and then buy some more.

the genuine mini locking nuts are marked with a 2 digit number and can be ordered, look in your documents, the number may have been recordered in one of the delivery booklets.

if not you can buy locking nut removal tools on ebay, if that is not an option for you try going to your local tyre shop, they are used to this problem and will be cheaper than a garage look for a a small friendly independent shop, not Kwik fit ect, they will rip you off.
