The Birmingham/Midlands group buy i've organised with the TT forum guys is on Sun 3rd March. Meeting at Tamworth services J10 M42 at 11am.Let me know when you looking at this as well as I'd like at least one flip key for my Ibiza, prefer them to the standard keys. North London/Essex/Herts based this one though will come to meet you nps with the rest.
in case anybody requires a new/spare key doing i'm going to be heading South from Huddersfield to Cobham services on either 13th or 14th April. Route is M1 & M25 but can make a detour if need be as long as it's not too far off of my route.
Doesn't just have to be Seat's, i can do probably 90% of makes of car keys
after trying to find some info out and with lots of different things about i decide to try and help people out by compiling all the stuf i used and found out to swap to a flip key
1 you will need a vw skoda or seat flip key with two buttons of ebay or anywhere with the mhz rating as your key. most prob 434mhz like mine and some are 433mhz and harder to get hold of.
2 try and get one with a blank blade
3 get that cut to your car at security place or somwhere that casn cut these keys
4 to change the imobillisor chip you need to seperate the flip key top and botton
5 then remove the badge( took me ages to figure out why i couldnt slipt the top bit!) you will then see a small screw undo this then the key will open up to reveal a little cylindrical chip.
6 you then need to open up your spare key the one with no remote this is easy did it with my nails and in that you will see a bit of white rubber and under this in the chip place this in your flip key and put flip key one in hear for now! to keep it safe
7 then reassemble the key and get seat badge from dealer
8 to code the remote you need the old original key in the ignition with it turned on then lock the door with the new key remove key then press unlock and horn will blip wait 6 second and press unlock again the key is now coded to your car!
cost about 30 quid including new badge and plenty on ebay
the key part no. i got and that i know works is HLO 1JO 959 753 AG
this is of a bora and mine was only 6 months old so the news batch of keys do still work!
hope this gives you the info you need
