As above. But if its not then most garages charge you about £20 (plus labour. Depending on how friendly they are!) for a cutting tool that shears it off then its roughly same again to buy a new set! I know as I thought I had lost mine and the garage next to my work told me this, luckily I found it though!

The general opinion is that the original lock nuts at least are a lot easier to remove than you might imagine.
Whether that's good or bad depends on your position of course

Speak to the original supplying dealer, they should still have the original code for the locking wheel nuts so you can get a replacement.

The standard lockers are made by McGard.

They use case hardened tips on the end of the locker.

They are super hard.

You can get them off without the tool but its neither easy or quick.

Decent Ford garage should have a set of master keys so they can get your nut off and identify which type of key it is so you can order another one. Or they may have a selection of keys 'parked up' which might match yours
