I have a VW Golf in my name. I have just split with my partner and she has taken the car. I have been to the police who can't help as altho its in my name, she had use of it so I have to go thru the courts to get back which seems ridiculous if you ask me, but they did say that there is nothing stopping me taking it back, but there's 1 massive problem! We only ever had 1 key to the vehicle! ... I'm just wondering is there anyway of getting another key cut somehow ?! Long shot I know, but worthy of a question as I don't know!
Dealer will need a working key to "clone" to make a spare, but seeing as you only have one with no access to it,
the only other option is to have the car towed to a dealer and have the door lock, glove box, ignition and immobiliser replaced and keys to suit new gear.
Parts and labour would be in the $x,000s.
When I bought my R 2nd hand from a (Non VAG) dealer, it only came with one key. I got a new one made up ($480 from VW) and took a week as the immobiliser codes are stored at the head office in Germany (Or so they told me). Sent invoice to non VAG dealer under 3 month warranty claim
Not giving u any ideas but probably easier and cheaper to hire a thug to do a bag snatch on ur ex and get the key back.
