    KA mk2 key

    Yes mate i may be selling the KA and it seems 2 keys are preferred obviously so will get one done.

    KA mk2 key

    Right just popped down there-he put it in a key reader thingy and it does have a transponder fitted-so £75 for a new key and programmed to my car. Probably can get it cheaper if i shopped around.

    KA mk2 key

    Yep apparently there's a Timpsons outside our local big Tescos so i'll nip in & see what they can do.

    KA mk2 key

    Messaged the bloke on eBay about the key above-he said some keys do & some keys don't have transponders, if it doesn't have a slot for a transponder it doesn't have one.

    KA mk2 key

    Cheers will look into that.

    KA mk2 key

    Well i found a blank-but it does indeed state it needs a transponder fitting so i guess i'll have to take it to a garage to be done? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/123108989460?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1438.l2649

    KA mk2 key

    No-just a solid black plastic fob which doesn't seem to have anything in it, or come apart. No central locking either it's the base model.

    KA mk2 key

    Ok isn't this just a key though-no gizmos inside or is there?

    KA mk2 key

    How much should i be paying for a new key for the mk2 KA-not remote just normal key-i only have one need a spare-and who would do one-cheers.
  10. Right oil not apparently coming from turbo-garage washed down old oil and cleaned up-fixed other little bits-all done for £90 was expecting a bad phone call but he rang and said it's mot'd-happy days. Will keep an eye on engine bay for signs of a leak.
  11. Yeah i did think that-i'm just a pessimist lol so if it isn't the turbo i'll be happy.
  12. Hopefully-we'll see what the garage says next week. I have found a new turbo on eBay with fitting kit for £410 which seems ok-although fitting one looks like a right pain?
  13. Had a quick look on eBay and literally every new turbo i looked at was from China-even though i clicked UK only-hate that...
  14. We bought 2 years ago for £750 which seemed cheap compared to others advertised. Prob value it the same now. Would prefer new/rebuilt for peace of mind. Local garage would have to fit it. Would keep the car as long as it's feasible to do so, have spent a few hundred on bits since owning and its been pretty reliable and good on fuel so dont wanna have to scrap it-got a quote of £200 scrap value. Could buy something else £500-1000 but that could open a whole new can of worms lol. Mates having a look next week it may not be the turbo just a leak, but way things have been going for me lately i won't be surprised...
  15. I have a 58 plate Focus Econetic daily, and after just failing mot due to excess oil around the turbo amongst other minor things, what would i be looking at price wise for either a new turbo fitted or repaired, and what type of turbo should i be looking for? Thought it may not be worth doing and getting something else-but if i do fix it i know thats gonna be ok for a few years and could be buying something else with problems? Fact we've just been given notice on our rented accommodation doesn't help either...
