Keys for 220
« on: October 12, 2008, 03:59:59 PM »
I have a set of keys blanks that i bought from Tom Hanson at Classic Centre. I gave him the key code according to my build card following which he mailed the blanks with a cutting code number. I cannot find a locksmith who is willing to undertake the job. Not much help, as it is a blank an dnobody knows how to figure eout the key cutting code

I am mssing keys for the driver door,fuel filler cap and replacement NOs boot handle. Can anyone recommend someone preferably in the Boston area. The Nos handle lock can be taken off easily, as can the fuel filler lock.

There is quite a good article on the Ponton group website on key codes and cutting.

http://www.mbzponton.org/valueadded/other/keys.htm

I ordered new Neiman key blanks and had them cut by a guy in Texas who works mainly with VW keys and locks, but was able to cut the keys with my key code.  Very reasonable and quick, however, I am not familiar with the key blank types for the 220.

Mine happened to be an "R" type key blank, but in later cars like the Ponton, the first number was the key blank number
i.e. 82365 would be an 8 type key blank with a cutting code of 2365.

The key to the driver door is easy to cut yourself. I have done it several times with 170-keys. The 220 keys I have seen have been the same type.
From the inside you loose one nut and then you can slowly put the handle into two pieces. Beware of all the small parts.
Then you can cut a new key with a file. No problem.

If anyone wants, I can later on upload some pictures.

I will upload when I have sparetime during this week.
If you are lucky perhaps I have a spare key for you. I have some old ones in my drawer.
If you dismount the Booth handle you can see the keynumber at the handle shaft.
Send me this number by E-mail and I will check my keys.

Some pictures showing handle and key.
You can see 2 types of handles. The one for 170Sb I think is the same as 220.
Be very careful when pulling the shaft out of the handle. A small spring may fly away from the middle position of the shaft.

And some more pictures.
Since I could not lose the nut from the 170Sb shaft some pictures shows the 170S instead.

The keey-blank you then cut with a file. The small brass-parts must be inline with the shaft. Do not cut the blank to deep. Then you have to buy a new blank and start from the beginning.

Perhaps you can ask a locksmith to help you.

Good Luck !

Hello,

Sorry fj76 but I had no key with your number. Is D207 the number to both the door and the booth ?
I know a man who perhaps can help. Tomorrow I will try to catch him.
Is your fuel filler lock the same as mine ?
