Report that key fobs are now available

Poster on Facebook r129 group states he received an email from MBUK and MB Germany that 3 button remote keys are now available for order. Still waiting for the 4 button.

Interesting!

If you or anyone owns an R129 1997-2002 did you know that none of the keys or remotes are available. Even if you don't need a key at the moment call your local MB dealer and inquire about having a key and remote made. If they get enough interest maybe they will show a little bit of interest regarding solving this issue.
Thanks
Mark

Seems they are

I called our local dealer parts dept here in Scotland and asked the question.

Initially said they hadn't heard anything then checked with someone else, confirmed they had had a circular, they were showing on their system but might be they would show as not available if ordered! I asked them to check and they confirmed they did appear to be available for my VIN number and could get me one, price is just over £218 (about $250?)

Only uncertainty is whether they would be coded at the factory to the car or whether they needed coded when they arrived at the dealer. If the latter, another hours labour cost (about £130 here)

He mentioned the R129 key is a Dash2 key, not sure what that means. I said I would bring in my key so they can check it is the right one (3 button blade flip out), but he said showing on the system as for the R129.

I'm not sure whether to get one (probably will) as I have one flip out key and the card key, which locks unlocks and starts the car.

Hope this helps
