    I need a new key for my 1992 Tabbert FFB 660 Classic. The key fits the habitation door and the outside lockers. It is bent and in danger of breaking, and it's the only copy I have. It has a 4-digit code on it. I have tried local key cutters and replacementkeys.co.uk, and they can't supply one.

    Does anyone know where I can get copies, preferably without having to send the key away somewhere?

    Thanks, Tony, but as I said, I've tried them.

    There are companies who specialise in keys for classic cars ... maybe worth a try.

    replacementkeys.co.uk do FA keys, and they couldn't do mine.

    I think I'll just replace all of the barrels, some of them are a bit sticky anyway.

    Any locksmith worth his salt will do it.

    Quite possibly, but I'd rather not risk sending my only key in the post.

    Probably a good idea to change the cylinders as they are quite old and will be worn IMO ,the key looks easy enough to find I used to cut keys in a former life as security lock fitter we could get almost any key blank.

    What is the 4 digit code? And have you tried this company
    https://caravan-parts.store.buegle....caravan-keys-wilk-caravan-keys-/?k=:50:240891:

    Or there's this company on eBay may be worth a call

    On holiday at Sandringham once when locker key broke. Shops that cut keys couldn't do it, took it to a locksmith and he did it no problem. Good luck with your search.

    Thanks for the suggestions, I think I've exhausted the options available to me; I've ordered new locks.
