How a car key can be broken
A broken car key can be really frustrating but when it happens you often need to get it fixed urgently.
- The silver-coloured “noggin” holding the key to the fob can break. This may require a new key to be made.
- The key “blade” may snap or bend, often as a result of pulling it from the ignition or outside lock at an angle. In these cases, only a new blade is required (usually cheaper than a whole replacement key).
- The key snaps in the ignition. This is more problematic but Immotec are a qualified ignition key replacement locksmith and are equipped with specialist tools to extract the key from the ignition in most cases and cut a new key.
