Robert1966:
If the wheel locks were purchased through Ford, the company that makes them is McGard, 3875 California Rd, Orchard Park, NY 14127-4198, Tel.# 800-444-5847 or 716-662-8980. The cost of the replacement key is $19.99 Canadian. If the wheel locks came with the car, the dealership should supply you with a key. Pass this contact info to them and ask, then demand they supply you with a key.

Lots of great tips and I appreciate everyone's feedback! And for 2012silversel, that is indeed great news and I've forwarded the info over to the dealership. I really don't feel comfortable with 'cutting' the bolts off due to potential damage to the rims. I also stopped by a local tire shop and they guy told me they have a special bolt to take them off without damage to the rims. So my options are there and I plan to use them....will keep this topic updated once it's done....thanks again.

I got your PM, glad I could help. McGard also has a web site for ordering.

Well just got back from the dealership today and they removed the locks without damage to the rims. Installed my snow tires, put on the new locks (free of charge) and gave me a free oil change. Gotta hand it to them, they came through for me and I'm very happy.

Good news.
Were the existing locks the same type that Ford sells, if so, did they order a new set and use the key that came with the new set? If not, how did they remove the existing locks?
