Key problem
My key snapped tonight how easy is it to get a new key cut are there transponders in the fob?[Image: IMG_20160310_205517_zps49btlhsg.jpg]
Tiny square transponder in the corner of plastic bit. Swap everything inside housing into new key.
Thanks luckily the car still starts with the blade. Will timpsons be able to make me a key
Hi Ewanm,

I snapped a key on my old Berlingo, I borrowed my wife's key and went to the local timpson who quoted £40 as it was a transponder key, I asked for a key to be cut without the chip (cost £10) took it home tried it but unsurprisingly it didn't work, I noticed the new Key had a red pull sliding section for the chip, I carefully cut open the broken key fob removed the chip ( Phillips branded about 3mm wide about 1 cm long) and fitted it in the slide out section of the new key, it worked perfectly and was still in use when I traded up.

I'll go in tomorrow and see what they say
Posts crossed, mine wasn't a plip key so go with cols advice


Might be useful if you can get someone to cut it for you.

It seems a funny set up with the blade separate.
Dremmel and hot glue gun to the rescue it's not pretty but it works till I can get a new one tomorrow

Got quoted £55 for a non rcl key and refused to cut me a non transponder key
