Hi all, new to the 307cc and this forum, hopefully some of you knowledgeable folks could help please.

I had a problem with my roof sticking but have managed to sort it today fingers crossed...

But I decided to check over the car (which i know i should have been more thorough before buying) and noticed the wheel locking key is missing and so is the wheel brace. Not sure what to do...


Thanks in advance for any help

The brace is crap, a telescopic one would be best. As for the locking nuts, get them drilled out and replace with standard ones. A dealer can do this for about the price of an hours labour plus the new bolts or find a good local m chanic to do it.

Thanks for the quick response, I will take it upto my local garage and see if they are able to do it. I didnt know if you could get a replacement from the dealers if you gave them the vehicle details but I suppose that would just encourage theft of wheels if it was that easy.

Replacements are available if you want to go that route. When I put alloys on my 307 I went for standard bits and I replaced the locking ones on my he wife's new 208. The last I heard of wheels being stolen was about 3 years ago when they were being stolen for the winter tyres off BMWs

As has already been said, get them off and replace with standard bolts. Loads of people have had issues with them becoming damaged and frankly not worth it. You would have to be a proper nut case to want to steal Peugeot alloys.

Most tyre places will get them off for you cheaply, replacement standard bolts can be purchased from Peugeot for a couple of quid, it's where i got my own from.
