Searched the forum couldn't find the answer.
Have got a Y reg megane and supplied with 1 key.
On my ford astra I had to buy a passport which gave key details, radio details etc then got a key cut to my code and programmed it myself with an opcom which was a lot cheaper than £160 ford wanted.

Not had experience with megane's but guess this is a Mk1?
It was supplied with a wallet and inside is a Sticker that gives, ignition key number, radio codes etc, is this the details i need?

Is it a simple job of going to Timpsons and getting a key cut and programmed or is it as bad as the ford and its a Renault only job?

Or is there a way around like I found with the Ford?

Thanks guys

A good auto lock-smith should be able to program another key for you no problem.

When I got my Mondeo (A ford I know :eek:) an Auto lock-smith programmed and cut a a new key that I aquirred for £35. If I'd needed the key it would have cost me £90. A heck of a lot cheaper than the prices for were wanting to charge.

If you had a keycard, like the Laguna II's, Megane II's (the type with the big a$$) etc then it would be a different story and you would have to have a new keycard ordered by Renault from France. :crazy:
