    Anyone know away around paying stupid money for a vauxhall car key pass?

    Its a bit of paper and they want £30 for it. Rip off.

    Anyone work for vauxhall could get it for me ?

    Is there a way around it?

    Hi,

    Take a look at your maintenance book. Find who sold it originally and give them a call. They may well still have the details on record.

    Shop around at the different dealers. Cost me £17.50 to get the details from a parts dept.

    Regards

    I have, Its a pain as Lombard originally had the car I guess as a business lease car and they do thier own pdi as well. Bit weird. They are useless. I asked for the drivers details etc. They basically said nothing they can do.
    rubbish.

    I want to get a spare key , so i thought id get a key from ebay , but then i need a new blank key blade, then i need to have it cut , then i need to get it coded at the dealer but they want this security code which I have not got. So basically im sick off the big rip off...............errrrrr

    All i want in the world is a spare key.............................for a fiver . never gonna happen

    Hi,

    These was my costs.

    New keyblade £6

    Keycutting £2

    Secondhand central locking remote bit £3.20 (A believe there are two types, with alarm and without but both look exactly the same)

    New transponder chip £4 (You'll need a new one for a Mk4)

    Op-com to program it all in £30 (Has come in very handy since for code reading etc.)

    Car Key Pass £17.50 +VAT I think

    Good luck with your fiver.

    Best Regards

    PJPJ

    Good one. Very kind of you. But I don't have the car pass! In which case might be worth me getting a car pass form vx then if you could do it.
