Missing tow hitch key.

Probably not specific to the D4 but I am looking at a 2016 one which has the heavy duty braced tow hitch. I don't do heavy towing so may consider removing it. It restricts access to the spare wheel, affects the exit angle and makes the back end look akin to a tractor Cool

The removable part still has the lock mechanism but the key ring doesn't appear to have the key on it. The key could be in the car somewhere and I have asked the dealer if they can find it, are these a common key that I could get elsewhere. If not can the drop adaptor lock be overcome?

the lock can be Very easily overcome Rolling Eyes that's why they keep getting nicked, (when left in place Whistle )

have a search loads of threads about removing the hitch and also about sourcing other keys if you want to go that route, the standard reply used to be "buy a replacement lock and you get the removal instructions included about £15"
