Broken key in boot!

Two questions here!
My key has broken off in the boot lock. How do I get it out!?
Where can I get another key from?
Sorry, so many questions!!!

Thanks for your help (in advance!)

i think is a case for Alfa romeo as i don't think you can get another key from anywhere else.

Re: Broken key in boot!

if you can you can remove the lock mechanism.

Re: Broken key in boot!

Once you have the broken bit out you can take the whole thing to any high street key cutter and get a blade cut. I think you need to use a 1987 Tipo blade as they have the same blade pattern, but they will check this for you. The problem is that the blade will fit the lock but will not fit the fob (and there is a definite knock to getting the old one out of the fob and the new one shaped and back in). Give it a go yourself, or if you are one of life's less DIY-enabled people, check that the key works in your locks first and then send the blade and broken key to eBay member JEFFASAN who will shape and fit the new blade into your fob for you.
