There's several methods shown on Youtube on removing keyed lock lug nuts when the lug nut key is lost. You'll need to buy another set of lock lug nuts to replace the ones removed.

Good luck.

Have a good day.

Thank you for the advice. I wanted to see if anyone in this forum had any ideas of where I can get a replacement wheel lock key either in San Antonio, TX or elsewhere as well as what the part number (if there is one) for the key. Any help would be appreciated. Ty

I think your only hope is to find a manufacture's name and unique code on the lock, otherwise you'll need to replace it.

However, after decades of using wheel locks I have come to the conclusion that they are pretty much useless... If someone wants to steal your wheels it's incredibly easy to remove wheel locks. They sell reverse threaded sockets to accomplish this... Wheel locks are also a nuisance when servicing your wheels... Plus, it's all too likely you'll misplace the key and be stranded on the side of a road should you need to remove a wheel...

This is the type of tool needed to remove a wheel lock without the key:

My vehicle came with Nissan branded locks made by McGard. My dealer has a master key and they never needed my key, perhaps your dealer has one too; if so, then after they remove the locks, you can either replace all the locks with new ones or just put regular nuts. Perhaps the code# was left in the glove box or console with the owner's manual or other papers; if so, you can order a replacement key from the supplier, usually McGard. Good luck!

That's great information! I wasn't aware there are master wheel lock keys available...

I checked on Amazon, there are a number of master wheel lock keys sets available...


Just another reason to not even bother with wheel locks...

Hello everyone! I'm Linda from Richmond, VA, and I have been a proud Murano owner since October 2nd, 2020. Scored a 2019 Platinum with 6k miles on it - gorgeous, flawless blue exterior and tan leather interior and needless to say I'm a happy camper! I first saw a Murano in 2005, test drove it and was close to the purchase when some other unexpected financial expenses got in the way. For years, whenever my daughter and I were on the road and we saw a Murano, I'd say, "Murano b*tch!" It was a joke between us because we were both disappointed that I was unable to buy the one we looked at. Fast forward to the present, when I parked my shiny new Murano WAY out in the parking lot in the "no ding" zone, (which is why the 2009 Maxima Platinum I traded in had NO dings on it!), I texted her, saying "I'M A MURANO B*TCH!"

Hello there,

Southern NJ here (across the bridge from Philly). I have a 2016 Black Murano SV AWD that I purchased in November 2019, not too long before the pandemic madness started! It's been over a year and she's been reliable, comfortable and the HP with the 3.5L V6 is pretty good.

Ironically, I used to own a 2005 Nissan 350Z with the same engine. I'm giving some serious thought to adding a late model used 370Z with 6 spd MT since my previous ride before the Murano was an Infiniti G37x Coupe (LOVED the power, but the 7 spd AT had me yearning for a MT over time...she was hella quick though, not gonna lie! LOL!)

I’m a new Murano owner, just bought a 2021 SV AWD in the “Candy Apple Tangerine” color. This is my third Nissan (‘85 Maxima, ‘10 Rogue) Great car, so far, really like the safety features and the fit & finish.

Hello! I just bought a 2007 Murano, and so far, I'm not sure I made the right choice. I expect I'll be on the forum a lot! Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Mandy, IMO the most practical solution is to remove the existing locking nuts using a special socket, or by getting some old sockets from a pawn shop, hammering them onto the locking nuts, then turning the locking nuts off...then buy a new set of locking nuts.

As a newcomer and seeing the vehicles you've had, let me offer a reminder - the Murano is basically an Altima with a SUV-style body. It's not intended for off-road use, and if you have the AWD version, the transfer case is not rugged enough to hold up under off-road use that any Jeep shrug off. Of course, dirt or gravel roads don't qualify as "off road."

Next time you visit Shilo's, have one of their fantastic Ruben sammiches and think of us.

Hi: I just purchased a New 2020 Murano Platinum. It is my first Nissan since the late 1980's when I had a Maxima. Have only driven it 1800 Km but am very pleased with the ride, the quietness, the seats and the highway economy.

Hello all, i have a 2013 Murano and have enjoyed the site so far. I have owned it for about three years with no issues. I do a lot of work myself on my vehicles, so i always join a forum for each make/model i own. This is my first Nissan, kinda, I did have a Datsun extended bed truck in the mid eighties though. Currently have a 2013 Tundra and a 2000 slk230 also. Looking forward to some great info and discussion here.

Hi Fred - I do the same forum search when I buy a car. I find that forums are among the most helpful tools for advice and for identifying whatever quirks or weaknesses that my car has. I hope this is a helpful one for you.
