    stolen Master remote key

    Hi all, my first time on here but just wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction. At the weekend i was unlucky enough to have my jacket, wallet and keys stolen, meaning i have now lost my remote key for my astra. It is a Astra MK5 1.7 cdti 100 diesel sxi. I have seen a few bits on ebay but looks confusing as i need to get the remote, the blade and then get it re programmed to the car. Does anyone know a quick solution to this rather than me getting bits from here and there or the main dealer that are charging lots of money for just a key. maybe a good place that can supply the new remote with a blank key so i can just get it cut or do everything for me if i provide the car pas etc.

    Thanks for you help Darren in Great yarmouth

    hi and welcome to the site.
    sorry to hear that matey.

    but did you have anything in your wallet with your address on or name?

    if they have your keys and your address, they have a free car.
    ideally you need to get the locks changed and a brand new set of keys.
    VX would be the place to go

    Darren, I'd strongly suggest going to Vauxhall and have your key codes changed making the previous ones useless. That way if the pick pocket does find out where you live they can't nick your car.

    Sorry I'm not much use on the key side of things as I just went into Vaux and ordered a new one for my car and £50 later I was all done.

    in the mean time Darren, undo your battery or something similar so if they do get in your car using the key, they cant get it started!? just a suggestion
