Default Replacement Key

Hello Everyone,

I need help with getting a replacement key or just the plastic housing for the key. I called my local dealer and they are pricey. which I expected. I would like to see if there is another option for getting a key. This is a key remote. Any and all suggestions are welcome.

Thank you,

If you have the remote buttons, you can buy one from Amazon for like $7. However, they sell you the the metal key and casing as one piece so you have to find a dealership or somewhere that will cut it. 3rd party locksmiths were expensive ($250/key), so I drove 120 miles to get mine cut at a Lexus dealership ($25/key). Best of luck to you!

You have to find a place that laser cuts it.

I found a local lock smith that has aftermarket key/shells and that could cut them for $40.00. None of the local dealers had a cutting machine. The closest one to me would have been Atlanta. Glad i found the lock smith. It saved me a two hour drive from Chattanooga and 20 bucks.

Wow got a 2 pack of key shells for 4.95 on ebay and went to ace hardware and they cut them for free! About 7 miles round trip and I just swaped the guts and I was in my way for less than 5$ and the key is almost a year old and works great! Sorry you guys had to pay to get it cut

Yes! Is awsome, but call in advance and make sure they have the machine to cut the inside of the key (like the Rx key has) and it was free
