    Lost key HELP

    Hi all, my father in law has just lost his only remote key for his W plate G. We have the V5 and the car pass so as I understand we can get a new key from Vaux? Thing I dont know is, Do they need the car as well to program a new key? or will a new key from Vaux work straight away?
    Also any ideas on costs? ( I told him it's not going to be cheap)
    Thanks for help.

    if you have the car pass they can order up a new Cut key for the car but it will need to be coded to the car with tech2

    WOW. How quick? Thanks.

    So the car will need to be recovered to a dealership?
    I dont think there is any other way round this?
