    Key blade replacement

    Evening all,

    I've just been having problems with my ignition not turning. I only got a new ignition barrel about 2 years ago, so suspect its the key (I don't have a bunch of keys hanging, just the kay and a small key fob). I've WD40'd the ignition barrel too which has helped a little. On closer inspection of the spare key I have noitice a crack in the key blade so that definately to replace this anyway...............

    Whereabouts would you recommend to purchase a key blade? I've seen some on eBay for about £6 but am curious on the price from VXL (with and without blade cut)?

    Thanks

    Update.

    It turns out that Vauxhall can do it for £125ish as you apparantly can't "remove the chip and the transponder may need programming".

    Hmmm! chip virtually fell out and I don't need the transponder programming!

    Ordered a blank Astra key blade off eBay for £6 inc p&p and got it cut for £2. I then put the chip and button module on it, and the works fine.
