Default Wheel locks

I have the base Pt 2003.Standard steel wheels with covers.
Does this model have wheel locks? I have some cool full moon covers to put on and this car has wheel locks I have no idea where or what the key is....

I'm pretty sure the standard wheel didn't come with wheel locks...heck my Limited with chrome wheels didn't come with them. It sounds like the original owner forgot to hand the key in to wherever he traded it in. They can be broken off or drilled off. Just try you local auto/tire dealer. Just have proof of ownership along with you so it doesn't look your trying to do something illegal.

Crewzin is correct. Go to a tire center/dealer and they have special sockets that can remove wheel locks. It acts like a screw extractor and is generally used with an impact wrench.

If you are going to put full moons on the stock steel rims there is a very good chance your full moons will come flying off. I heard about this when I first got my '01 base. Something about the stock Chrysler rim. I hope yours will stay on. It will look cool.

I sure hope they don't come off
I never heard anything like that before,I do know if they are not seated properly or if you hit a big pothole they'll come off.
What you told me is very disturbing....ouch.

re: wheel covers coming off
i had a ford mustang for a while. had factory full wheel covers (but not for long) when taking a couple of curves at a pretty good clip, the wheel covers ejected themselves as if they were held in place with explosive bolts. took more than a few hours to find them deep in the underbrush. no joy in mudville.
it was interesting to see how many fords were driving around with no front wheel covers on. guess the rims just flex enough while cornering
to spit the covers off. good luck.

Quite sure the base hubcaps are held on with plastic nuts that screw onto the wheel studs - keeps the hubcaps put.
