Yes it has an adaptor just like the old mag wheel nut locks. I believe you should be able to get under the car and knock the security device out with a hammer and chisel then just use the jack handle to wind it down.

Good luck

Look in the glovebox, it's usually in a plastic bag with instructions or in the Service book folder.

The older 100 series needed an adaptor but my 2006 model is just an eye which the hook on the end of the jack handle fits.

Now there's a coincidence. Last year a BIL of mine was doing a lap around Oz and got a flat on the way up to El Questro. He couldn't change it as some adaptor appeared to be missing. Someone came along and got him on his way. He had just recently bought the car to tow his new van. It was an 06 100 series as well. It was second hand but only had something like 40,000 on the clock and looked like new. Hmmmmm?


Cheers

Thanks for all your reply's!
I did find 2 adaptors it was with all the paperwork from the dealer in my filing cabinet, now one is in the tool bag and the spare in the glove box!

It is a trap for young players, if you have a 06 100s it would be worth checking to see if you have that adaptor before heading off!!
