Spare wheel lock nut

Hi,
I bought a used Jeep Wrangler, and i have just seen that I didn't have the tool for the spare wheel lock nut.
I have attached a picture.
This tools could be somewhere in the car?
Anyone has a solution?
Thanks
Sylvain

If you can't find it just go to a rim shop and try should be able to brake it off

It could be in the glove box or on a used vehicle anywhere or nowhere. Check out a tire shop, they should be able to get you squared away.

Take a socket that barely fits over it, hammer it on and then just use a ratchet or breaker bar to turn it off

I just did this to mine this morning, if you want a demonstration I would watch he does a good job of explaining/demonstrating. Hope it works for you!

If that doesn't work just drill through it. Wheel studs are cheap. Just pick one up before you drill but that's last resort.

The easiest thing to do is go to the local jeep dealer. I had the same situation. I went in and asked and the tech came out with the master set and removed it. I then put it back on just barely finger tight for aesthetics.
