147 Questions Questions
I have just completed my first 1000 miles in my new (to me) 147. I am very happy so far but have a few queries which I hope can be answer by knowledgeble people on here!
First is getting a new key for the remote central locking / boot. The car came with two keys, but only one had the buttons on for the central locking and the boot. Will using just the key once the car has been locked with the button set off the alarm? I am wondering how difficult it is to get new keys made up? I have seen them on ebay for around a fiver but no idea what the process for programming them is (I have no owners manual so don't know if it's something that can be done on the car or needs a dealer...)...
Secondly I am wanting to install an iPod connection with the factory fit stero and keep the steering wheel controls etc. However, I do not have a stereo code and am wondering if I pull the back out to fit the iPod connection and need to remove power from the stereo then without the code I will have a useless system! Is there a way of finding out a code (does it need a code??!)?
Finally, the car is in excellent condition but there are a couple of stone chips on one wing mirror and a scratch on the bumper. How/Wheredo I find the paint code as I would like to touch up these minor blemishes!
Thanks in advance for any response guys!
