Lightbulb clio key ???????????

I have a mk 2 1998 Clio diesel and have just come back from a Renault dealer who told me he could recode my key for the central locking for £35. When he took it away to do it he came back and said it could not be done as it was a Megane key and i needed to buy a new key for £140
i have been told you can get them off eBay
but how can i tell if it is the correct key
thanx alan

I'm not sure that the keys you can buy on ebay are any good,there are a few posts on here concerning these and as yet there have not been any positive remarks.

I bought one for my Laguna(yes,I know I should have known better....),and when it arived it was the wrong key even though it was advertised as one that would be suitable.I still have it,and you are more than welcome to try it if you want!!.(PM me your address and I'll send it FOC!).
All your supposed to have to do is swap the metal blades over and have it reprogrammed to the central locking control,but I'm not convinced it's that simple.....

You could try a Auto Lock specialist and see if they can supply a new key any cheaper.Some have the equipment to reprogramme keys,and I suspect they would be a lot cheaper than a genuine Renault one.

Hope this helps.

I'd rather push my Alfa than drive a BMW....
