277 code wheel locking key. Whos got one.

After a spectacular fail from a big name FIAT chain. A friend has a 500 needing service items..
All well and good. But they've supplied the car with an incorrect key/tool

Having searched all of the car..and its paperwork..a small label..like the wheel bolt key label..reading 277..
Has been found..

Before money is spent..

Dealer quoted 100 quid.. : shrug

Anybody got this code..?
A photo of key/bolt would be all that is required..

Want to get the correct one ordered..

Cheers. Charlie

Re: 277 code wheel locking key. Whos got one.

Notwithstanding the above advice, you could just buy a brand new set of replacement locking wheel nuts. I recently replaced the very rusty original set on my Saab with Butzi chrome locking wheel nuts and they are absolutely fine, a good fit and with a very similar type of security insert.

These in the link are the ones suitable for a 500:

I think its a case of the locking nuts are on the car and can't be removed?
This might work

Almost as expensive as the actual locking key, probably won't work and you then have to buy locking wheel nuts again.

Thanks for the helpful info..

Dealership have now agreed to take the car in and sort it properly..

Punctures...that would be ironic..
