Hi ,200 does sound a bit excessive i thought it was about 120 but i could be wrong,not all dealers are the same i would shop about at different dealers and see it has to be worth a try can someone else do it?? i think not but i have hear that it can be done but don't quote me on that cheers Donald

The fob can only be bought from Renault, i.e. a dealer, no one else. It can be coded by an Auto lock specialist though.

The fob should be about 80, a new key blade about 15 and about 50 to have it coded.

Those were the prices I had from 2 dealers, one in Glasgow and one in Manchester.
