Key replacement - 1998/99 Corolla Car
I have one key for my Toyota Corolla (S-Reg) 98/99. (Gen 8)
The key itself has a big crack in it and although it is still operational, I
need to get a replacement before it snaps in half!
I have spoken to my local Toyota dealer and they say 'because it is a sub-key,
they need to replace the ignigtion barrel and get a new key programmed in....
oh and it will cost about £300 ($450)!!!!!'
I find it difficult to believe that it'll cost that much money to just get a
replacement key. I don't understand why I would need a replacement barrel.
Has anyone else gone through something similar? Are they right in what they say?
Is there a cheaper alternative?
