    Hi Bill does your habitation door have the sliding window ? If it does you can drill a very small hole at the very top and open the window by pushing a thin object through (nail) and release the window catch. I had to do it in Beni and you could'nt see the hole afterwards.

    Bill if has the sliding window, after sliding the window down you reach in and open the door.Luckily I had't lost my keys only locked them inside.
    The other option I locked myself out another time in a autotrail and the people next doors hymer key worked in my hab door.
    Alan PS there as a fiat main dealer in Altea

    Bill re reading my post I'd nominate it for the stupidest post of the year. So sorry. What I meant was is there any chance they will turn up? Campsite lost property, local police station, beni Facebook page or local bar etc?

    Hope you get sorted.

    Deep poo time if it's the normal FIAT key with transponder, they might sting you for a new security computer.

    You will need the key code so the dealer can order you a new key. Depending how old the van is you will either be looking for a card with the handbook that says Fiat Code electronic A and mechanical B or if it's less than 3 years old the codes are held by a company that charge the dealer for them. You cannot apply directly for them (ISR I believe there called).
    Either way I cannot see you getting a new one straight away.
    Hopefully you will find yours first.
    This is assuming for a UK supplied van.
