A bit of background info may be of interest.
This vehicle has security wheel nuts, one on each wheel natch, and is
supplied with a "key" of questionable quality. The key fell apart at the
last service so I bought a new one from a Peterborough Citroen dealer
for £25. At the service last week at a local service centre, not a

most expensive car I've ever owned. Not purchase price but running

at the next service. It doesn't matter if these are Citroen or pattern,
they don't last.
Anyway, I still need a wheel.
