Default Locking wheel nut removal

After some advice please. My locking wheel nut key has broken and i've been quoted 60 and up to 2 weeks delivery by Peugeot for a replacement.

I'm reluctant to do this due to A. Cost and B. It may just break again if as i suspect the nut is on too tight.

Can anyone tell me how much it would be roughly to get all four removed by a garage and replaced with normal bolts?

Also any tips on how to do it myself? heard lots of different methods such as laser tools, drilling out, welding another bolt on top and removing.

P.S the part number on the key is E 8CL8.

Thanks

If it is the spinning ring type I tried and given up as very difficult. These sockets are great EMERGENCY WHEEL NUT REMOVAL SET 4 PIECE BROKEN or LOST KEY | eBay
but won't work if you have the spinning ring type.
Lots of keys available on ebay, I got one for our Renault from a chap selling Toyota keys otherwise pay the and get a replacement from Peugeot, wish I knew why their prices are so high.

Thanks for the replies. I took it to a mechanic friend of the family this morning and he filled in the 3 pieces that had broken with drill bits and sawed the ends to make them flush. To my relief this worked! Not bad for a tenner.

Think normal bolts are the way to go now though.
