    locksmith with a coding machine to make duplicate keys using the factory codes. otherwise its a case of changing the locks and as far as i remember getting a second hand diesel pump with matching key

    neither option is that cheap, but the locksmith will be quicker and less involved. they can source the code from the chassis number etc and make up keys same day

    forgot to say, most insurance policies will pay for lost keys, so it will hopefully only cost the excess on the policy

    expect about £200 from memory, but worth phoning a few auto locksmiths for a quote. the key itself would only be £20-£30 the remainder is to pay for them to look up the code to program it

    The key cost may be covered by his bank if he pays card fees monthly.
