Hi 

 

I've recently bought a 2006 x-type 2.2 hdi SE and I love it. Only problem is that it only came with one key. I rang a Jaguar main dealer and they quoted well over £200.00. That's one hell of a price for a spare.

 

Does anybody know how or where I can by a spare fob and key any cheaper?

 

Any help would be appreciated

Ebay you'll get a used one on there and local shoe repairers should be able to cut a new blade for you and you can get independant garage to program it to your car.

Hi Don, and welcome to the club.

 

Jaguar main dealers, and main dealers of other makes too, are notorious for their charges.

 

A good locksmith will do as good a job for a portion of the cost.  I know of a few in the Midlands, but if you google "Auto Locksmiths"  I am sure that you will find one within reach.

 

There is an Auto Electrics Company in Leeds [a bit far] who will do the job while you wait, so it is not a big job.

 

Let us know how you get on.

 

Regards,

 

Peter.

Hi 

 

I got a spare key yesterday it is not a original jaguar key and it doesn't have a button for switching on the headlights but it locks and unlocks and starts the engine so is fine as a spare. The cost? Including programming only £100.00. Great stuff. If I'd just wanted a microchipped key it would have only been £46.00. If you want the name of the garage let me know.

 

Thanks again

 

Don
