Renault - Clio - Replacement key w/central locking button

My girlfriend's bag got stolen recently and her main car key was inside

She has a 99 Clio and we need a replacement key with central locking button. Renault have quoted her £101 for the key and £43.18 to reprogram it.

Will sourcing a key from a car breaker be worthwhile? I'm guessing that might save on at least the cost of the circuit board and key housing (provided of course they are able to reprogram the circuit board for her car).

Sorry to hear that

Did she have anything with her name and address on in the bag if so it might be beneficial to replace the locks also.

It could be but your need to contact a mobile auto electrician/diagnostics to see if they are able to program it but I donít think they can but there no harm it trying before going down the dealer route.

Thats a bit steep..... mine was £114 in total, must vary from dealer to dealer
I have heard of many people buying a blank key off ebay and then going to an independent garage to programme it. Not many garages have the capabilities to programme keys as the kit isnt cheap, so its worth checking before you try

Hope you got your key sorted m8.

Mine is similar prob.

I bought a spare key fob/blip off ebay for my renualt clio 1.6 si 1999. I have followed the instructions for reprogamming the key fob as I believe I have a clio II using these methods:-

CLIO II, KANGOO & MASTER INFRA RED RESYNCHRONISING
1. Turn Ignition OFF.
2. Press the central door locking button for more than 5 seconds. Note :
the door should lock then unlock.
3. When this happens, 10 seconds is allowed and the immobiliser warning
light illuminates.
4. Point the 1st key at the receiver and press the button twice, the doors
should lock and unlock. Repeat for other remotes as required.
5. Check the remote control unlocks and locks the doors.


CLIO II RF RESYNCHRONISING
1. Turn Ignition OFF.
2. Press the central door locking button for more than 5 seconds. Note :
the door should lock then unlock.
3. When this happens, 10 seconds is allowed and the immobiliser warning
light illuminates.
4. Press the remote control once, the doors should lock and unlock.
5. Repeat for second remote if required.
6. Check the remote control unlocks and locks the doors.


CLIO RE-SYNCHRONISING
1. Lock Car manually
2. Unlock Car manually
3. Insert key into ignition within 30 seconds.
4. Turn Ignition and start vehicle.


However I was unsuccesfull. Is it possible to do or is it off to the main dealer for a new key?

Any help muchly appreciated
