Types of damaged keys we can repair
Keys can break in numerous ways but the most common problem we get called out to is snapped keys. Over time the metal blade on your key becomes worn and eventually weakens with constant use. When this happens its quite easy for the blade to snap off in the lock. Replacement Car Keys London are able to remove broken keys pieces from locks and cut a replacement key. This is all done on site at your vehicle while you wait – the full job should take no longer than 15 minutes. As long as the transponder chip in the head of the key is still present and has not been damaged we can easily cut a replacement key for your vehicle. This saves on costs of programming a new key.
Other common problems we can help with are cracked key case replacement and bent key blades. Toyota and Lexus keys are renowned for cracking and falling apart. We carry replacement cases for all Toyota keys and can save you hundreds of pounds over buying replacement keys from a main dealer. We can also replace missing transponder chips. This is very common with Vauxhall keys where the chip is fixed underneath the remote.

If you have just broken your car key please follow the following advice to prevent making the problem worse:
Do not glue two broken parts of a key together – it will just snap off in the lock and make an extra problem. Do not bother trying to use magnets to remove a snapped key in a lock – the lock wafers close over the key making this technique futile. Do not add glue to the broken key and stick it in the lock hoping to pull out the other snapped piece of key – this will just glue up the lock and make out job harder.
