Recommended Posts

How do you recode if that is the right word an existing door lock barrel to a new/different key ? if it is possible ?

Cheers

Its a fiddle but its possible.

What are you trying to do ? get one key for everything ?

Yes, I had to replace the ignition barrel so have one key for ignition and another key for the doors, hatch and fuel cap. I have lived with it for a couple of years now but just wondered how difficult it would be if it was possible ?

Its not impossible, the worst one is the filler cap, all others are just a case of strip and clean and work out which of the 4 types of tumblers goes where and then replicate that over all locks

Filler cap is a horror, so much so that I often start at the filler and do the others to match that !  You have to have two caps and destroy both in different ways to get the parts to rebuild one with the lock coded.

Very time consuming but I do have all the kit here now after doing 4 full cars recently
