Anyone had to replace a key yet? My stupid Mrs has lost hers :evil:
I'm not expecting it to be cheap, anyone know the actual/rough cost?

Oh Mrs Hugh are you in deep doo-doo or WHAT! I do hope Mr Hugh loves you lots!
(I think a divorce might be cheaper, or simply say, you lost it you can't drive the car anymore)
Can't find the actual cost of a Kodiaq key but lookey here. SIT DOWN FIRST!

THEN you have to get it coded!
Oh dear, the closest to a quote I could find looked around £200 and I thought/hoped it was a piss take. Her keys may still show up as she's convinced they're here somewhere.
I think I'm going to invest in something like this when it gets sorted out one way or the other https://www.ryman.co.uk/tilemate-bluetooth-phone-item-finder?&istCompanyId=724692e0-2f99-4874-9565-6fc82074fe86&istItemId=xwxtqtliip&istBid=tzwt&gclid=CjwKCAiA15vTBRAHEiwA7Snfc_XoAuxOYznjt1BYlAhDp2vS25e0o3JyNER5Th6hwzKkARd6UYg8ohoCvxkQAvD_BwE

Seriously,
I do hope you find it.

Have you not still got a spare key. I received three when I bought my Kodiaq....... and if that is the case you may well find that your lost key will turn up over time.

Sell her shoes to fund the replacement!

I wonder why you were given three?
I have never been given 3 keys with any new car? Weird.
Do they all work or has some other poor sod only got one key?

A genuine Gucci/ HERMÈS handbag should cover it. You have to leave her something to walk in!

Yes, three keys. One for me, one for the wife (which she hardly ever uses. She has only driven twice) and a spare which had attached to it a plastic tab with a code thereon. Yes they all work.

Cars with driver personalisation come with 3 keys, as per owners manual.

Have you checked if you bank or insurance covers you for lost keys? Most of them do now due to the cost of replacements.
My house insurance doesn't cover car keys and I don't have the cover on my car insurance. I don't really believe in spending extra for cover like that. For instance, in 21 years of driving I've never lost a key yet. The extra cost to cover it isn't economical over the period.

I've tore the flat to bits for a couple of hours here and there but no luck as yet. I've been through every toy box and looked inside every truck and car :lol: She's convinced it's here somewhere :roll:

She's at home tomorrow so she's going to have a good look for it then.

I know this is no compensation to you, Hugh. But having read you predicament, and seeing how much a key costs, I'm definitely adding lost key to my insurance!!!
Hope she finds it tomorrow...

I expect she will. My ex wife always said "Men can't find anything, even if it's under their nose, especially you." :lol:

She found it this evening. It was mixed up in my 3 year olds puddle suit that she had hastily stuffed in his wardrobe after she'd had him out in the snow on Sunday. Because we all keep keys in our toddlers wardrobes :roll: :lol:

Maybe the puddle suit shields the key from the high tech thieves.
