Wheel locks 2015 BE

Hi guys

I am having serious difficulty getting hold of the locking wheel nut for my car, its a 2015 BE - how does it work, does Nissan change them in batches since I was told I need a code to order the locking wheel nut from Nissan.

Does my locking wheel nut not match other GTR's with the same alloys?

Really am banging my head against a brick wall - whenever I go in and talk to garages, and dealerships.

Basically cant change my brakes (full of huge cracks)!!

Anyone else had the same problem? Any advice to get this part from Nissan? Should I try ebay?

Do you still have the paper/card in the passenger foot well that has the code?

Also maybe if you take the car to a Nissan garage they may have a few lying around they can test for you

We couldnt find the paper card in the passenger footwell.

Apparently the previous owner is in the process of sending the Handbook and the wheel nut lock to the company I bought the car from, but according to the previous owner, he has already sent it weeks ago.

Yes I know there is a code in the handbook, but without it right now - I have to assume the worst.

I went to Nissan also earlier, and they didnt have the tool (I live in Sweden).

I havent been to the main GTR specialist as it is a 3hr drive, I may have to just wait till the Spring.

When my locking wheel nut remover snapped I went to the local NHPC. They had a plastic box supplied from nissan that had around 8-12 differing locking wheel nuts in said case.

I assumed from that that Nissan (or their supplier) only produce 8-12 different shapes for the GTR (and whichever other NIssan models use the same nut)

I ordered my own little box from eBay, 26squids....I figured it was worth it.
