Hey guys. Been gone a long time. Sold my 170 a few years back. Got a CLK cab, sold it, got a motorcycle, sold it and now really close on another 170 (Sarge, you were right. Knew I'd return). My question is a few years back, it was near impossible to get a second key. Has that changed? I seem to remember hearing that MB was going to start making them again?

That'd more than likely be Matt & Mark in Brum,
Are they still about, they seemed to have disappeared a while ago when I looked for 'em ?

In UK there is also Hickleys of Taunton, they are very good and I'd recommend in UK.

I don't recommend the back street boyz, I have seen many a Car bricked with them delving about in Drive Auth system ;)

@Mn car guy

Do you need the whole Key or is it just the Casing or the Circuit Board in the Fob ??? .............................

i.e. Plastic Case and Central Locking bit is fairly easy to sort out DIY, as long as a broken Key still actually starts the Engine ;)

Hey Dave, that car that I'm considering has only one key and fob.
I'm in the same boat - just the one key came with the car, no spare :(
Not a great concern as long as that one key and everything associated with it is functioning as it should do.
It's something that I've been putting off but I just know that at some point I'm going to need that spare one and hopefully I'll have one before I actually need it.

AFAIK they are, I seem to recall a post on FB from last year where a 171 owner had a couple of keys made up by them, but then again .. CV19 .. I really should make the effort to get in touch with them

In that case yes, you need Dealership or specialist locksmith ;)

How far are you from CA ? I have a mate there who does Keys etc in his sleep ;)

@Dave2302 Never know until you ask. You can check yourself on locations by clicking on their avatar and having a look. One of the details we require of all members just for that reason (y)

Aye but if his location says "Timbucktoo", "Texas" "New York" etc I still wouldn't have a clue how far from California 🤣
