Classic keys for Volkswagen Cars
The 1992 to 1999 cars may not have codes on the
handles if they have been replaced.
The vehicle identification number (vin) has nothing to do with the lock code on these
Only the delivering dealer
would have recorded the code.

Volkswagen contracted with lock
manufacturers to make the locks.
Some locks are Volkswagen. Others are AKS, WTO, Neiman, Huff, Hella, Ellen, Witte Velbert to
mention the majority.
Those original keys may bear their mark. Those marks are not codes.
KEY CUTTING PRICES
to 1999 keys are cut to code, not copied, this insures that the spacing is correct and the key is back to its original form
This is a standard service to cut rather than copy.
We can send you a key made from code with a copy,
stencil, or photo copy of the key we are duplicating. Please do not send megabyte picture files.
Note: someone who writes for the FOX show The Simpsons must own a Volkswagen because
in the episode NABF 18 "500 Keys" Lisa gets the locksmith to make a key from a photo of the key in
the school newspaper.
If you do not have a key for the lock or have lost it,
there is a one time code-cut charge of $20 for a generic key
make a key for a lock that does not have a key.
This key becomes your spare, or you can make more copies from
The code from a handle or lock cylinder is needed to make the key.
Codes are located in various places, Door
handles have them on the mounting ear. You must remove the handle from the door. This is done from the outside with the door
open. See pictures near the bottom of this page for locations on the locks. email us
with your make year and type of VW for the location of the code(s). If your
browser does not support an email account, the address is, firstname.lastname@example.org
Most all keys cut and provided by me work properly. On occasion some keys need adjustments. On rare occasions I make a mistake
and cut the key to the wrong code. Keys will be replaced. There are no refunds. We will work through the problem. The purpose
is to be successful. Refunds would not be a solution. I have been doing this a long time. Key orders are usually shipped within
2 business days, often the same or next day after payment is received.
Some people have been ordering code
cut keys thinking that their key is worn and that is why it does not work smoothly in the lock, this is wrong. Do not confuse
cosmetic wear of your key with function. What happens is the lock is wearing out, the grooves that guide the key are worn
and the key "plows" up or down and the wafers go with the key, not staying centered in the lock cylinder. So ordering
a newly code cut key is not going to work better.
There are two types of key cuts. Keys that are cut the
same on both sides are cut in two styles. One looks like a sine wave which is the original look and the other looks like a
code cut keys are not "better" than the key you may currently
be using, do not confuse style of cut with wear
(the keys below are not cut the same, picture
is example of cut style)
Take a picture of your key today, it may be your
spare someday as a new key can be made from that photo.
Send it to
the cloud or yourself. It costs you nothing, it may be priceless one day, for you.
BEFORE YOU ORDER READ THE INFORMATION ABOVE, SUCCESS DEPENDS
On 1992 and older cars, check both front door handles for matching codes

Generic keys (no emblem) are made for lost key situations. Confirm it works
by email and you can then order emblem keys. The reason for this is should I cut an emblem key, and it did not work, you would
want a refund and we will have wasted an emblem key. Not all lock codes are correct. Some have had the cylinders changed,
you may have read the code wrong, the code was stamped from the factory incorrectly. All of these things have occurred in
There are no refunds, should the key not work, the lock and non working key will need to be sent. Cylinders get changed, used
locks bearing the wrong code, etc.
Over 10 years ago I would have you send the lock and I would make a key, but the success rate on valid codes was so
high that I now send the key first (cheaper shipping, faster service)
