How many teeth does it need? I have a bunch of them. Count the valleys in the bolt, not the peaks, and I'll see if I have one to suit.

Dealerships have master key sets, and sometimes Audi independents too. They may remove it for you for a beer token

Looking at the picture 19 splines, so this would sort you out

Definitely 19. Worth giving our sponsors a call, you'll get it tomorrow.

Thought mine were 13, and indeed they are (just checked). Thought they were always a prime number, 15 obviously isn't?
