Lug wrench

Sorry guys and gals. I tried searching, but didn't find an answer on this. I realized the other day that my tool kit (and lug wrench) is missing. Is there somewhere, other than ebay, where I can get the wrench? I don't really care about the tool kit.

I got a four-sided lug wrench from Harbor Freight to tide me over, but all four were too large. Any ideas where to look?

Thanks!

The lug bolts are 17mm, a common size in both socket sets and metric four-sided lug wrenches. You must've bought a standard (SAE) wrench. If you want to stick with a harbor freight solution a breaker bar and 17mm socket might be a good combo.

Your local auto parts store sometimes might carry extendable lug wrenches (1 foot to 2 foot lengths) with a 3/4 socket in 17mm, 19mm, 21mm, and one more I forgot. You'll only need the 17mm for your w123. That's what I have, and save my tool kit as part of the "original items" bin (among the first aid kit, owner's manuals, etc).

I don't care about cheap. I hit Harbor Freight because it was down the street and I needed to get the tire changed ASAP. Ended up using my socket set after realizing I was SOL on the lug wrench.

Thanks for the replies -- the above links are perfect, DeliveryValve.
