Attempting to change my offside track rod end, but the thread on the locking wheel nut is damaged and the key just slips, any ideas on how to rectify this problem?

You, my friend, I'm afraid to say, are in bother! First things first, take the other ones out of the other wheels incase you ruin the key.

Have a search on here for loads of people, including me, have had this problem. The local tyre place got mine of with an air gun. I was one of the lucky ones!

I've similar problem at the minute, having a tyre changed yesterday and the fitter tried to remove the drivers side front locking bolt with the car in the air and then yanking several times on the breaker bar resulting in rounding off the bolt. To remove it the manager hammered on the key and put car to the ground (how it should have been in the first place) and then slowly loosened the bolt.
Had to use bolt as I need car just hope it comes out again, now it process of sorting out who pays for the damage.

if he had it and it broke from abuse...its him who has to pay.

when i had a stuck locking nut on my 307 the guy who removed it, warned me it has a high chance of knacking it and he wont be held responsable. i replied go a head and you can keep them im replacing them with normal bolts. safe to say he didnt, as he knows all about put bolts.

Default Locking Wheelnut

I found that some person fitting new tyres last year had wrecked one on a rear wheel. On examining one that was undamaged I decided that a a left hand scroll socket would do the trick, but the design of the wheel nut was such that it would shear off when this approach was made but I had no choice but to try. Yes it did shear off so now it's back to my trusty drill.
How can these people at Peugeot sleep at night putting into a simple bolt such an obscene problem causing design...

I had a problem recently when a tyre company 'stuffed' the locking wheel nut key on my 407 and then proceeded to mess the actual bolt up. Two local garages made it (and 2 others) even worse and one wanted to cut the wheel off.
I remembered someone posting on here about a guy in Reading, I 'Googled' locking wheel nut removal and there he was.
Took my very sad 407 there last weekend and he had all four out in about 15 minutes and no damage. Can't recommend him highly enough, not sure if this is allowed but, http://nelson-haha.com

hmm you on their pay roll or something? New member, first three posts all same and advertising, fishy to me.
