Lost Car Key

I have an '87 300E. I recently lost the key and don't have a spare. Can it be replaced or would i have to get the car rekeyed? How expensive would replacing the key be?

RE: Lost Car Key

Is it a laser cut key? Have you called a dealership to inquire?

RE: Lost Car Key

Hi rsylva,

When I needed a replacement key for my '87, I just brought my registration to the dealership as proof of ownership & the VIN. They had a new laser cut key shipped out in about 10 days/2 weeks time. Luckily, I had another key to use in the waiting period.

I'll bet a replacement lock set & installation will run pretty dear, if that is the direction you need to go.

Good luck, MBL
