Metal Key Number Tag


Recommended Posts


Was just going through all the paperwork and bits that came with my 4.2 which I purchased earlier this year, and I seem to have both black remote keys and the grey non-remote one but not the metal tag showing the key number which the owners manual says I need in order to get more keys.

Is this tag vital? Can I get more keys cut without it should I lose one? Is there any way to find out the number on it from Mr T?

Oh the worries of owning cars (or car in my case)!

I wouldn't say it was vital providing that you always have one of the 2 keys that can be copied, in any case blank keys can be found much cheaper on eBay, but you would then need to have them cut + tranfer the transponder from your old key, I am not totally sure, but i think that number is linked to your specific car + given enough details possibly vin/chassis/engine number Mr T might be able to trace it (but don't quote me) :thumbsup: Stew

I recently spoke to Mr T about my key and they said they need to plug the car into the computer and programme it to a key that way. No mention of the wee metal tag.
