Alfa 156 1.8 TS

Idea Auto Locksmith


Can anybody recommend either an auto locksmith or main dealer who would be able to replace a 3 button key fob for a 2002 Alfa 156 1.8 TS?

I have tried my local Alfa dealer which is E.S Jones based in Dobshill, Flintshire but have been quoted the best part of 250. (Have yet to brake the price to the wife as it took me long enough to pursuade her that owning an Alfa was not a costly exercise and within the first 6 months I have spent over 700 replacing the cam belt and variator!)

I have seen advertisements on google for auto locksmiths who can replace and code Alfa keys (keypit in Oxford being one) but they all seem to be based in the South. I live just outside of Chester so looking for someone within a 25 mile radius ideally.

At the moment I just have one key which in truth has seen better days and is crying out to be sent away to be refurbished with a new case. Does anyone also know where I can buy a used 3 button key fob from so I can swap the casing over? I have tried e-bay but they do not come along very often.
