Replacement keys

Recommended Posts

Hi all, as my car gets closer to being back on the road I thought I'd better get some spare keys as I only have 1x ignition, 1 x door /boot and 1 x petrol cap. I popped into Timpson and out of the three, only the petrol cap one worked. I've been back 3 times since and they've ordered in several different types of blanks but still the ignition and door keys don't work.  I'm guessing that my originals are old and worn, is there anything I can try apart from replacing ignition barrels / door and boot locks? Are there any classic car key specialists in the UK?

 

Thanks in advance.

That's unusual, normally any key works in an old Ford?

If you got different lock & key for each lock then If you send them to me I can make them all work on the same key.

 

The MK3/4/5 etc all use the TC/TX key.

 

Once a key/ lock is worn copies can cause problems esp as the close to half a century old!
