Usually it's a socket that slips into the lug nut wrench that came with the car (though it should fit into any other lug wrench that fits the lugs, too... I always keep a 4-way in my trunk).

Did you look in the glove box, like in the packaging for the owner's manual?
Or possibly it's stored WITH the lug wrench and jack that came with the car.

Anyway, there are only so many combinations (it appears for a 2004-2005 TSX, there was actually only 1), and yes - the dealerships should have one.

thanks going to the dealer in the am ,

it seems as if you can hammer on a socket also and there is a tool for it about 61$

I saw a complete replacement set (i.e. 4) with socket for the TSX at a couple places between $45 and $49, so I would not pay $61 for a removal tool, because no single tool will remove them all (unless it's a nut splitter, but those destroy the lugnut and *could* damage the stud).

You should have to find/use the special socket every 6 to 7 thousand miles, if the tires are rotated at the recommended interval.

Your dealer or any local tyre (tire) thief can help you remove the wheels.
You may need a new set of wheel lock nuts if you cannot locate or replace the special removal socket.
