Since we are on the subject of keys, how many keys will a G-Car have....

Joey

Spencer WV

Found my Esprit, but due to family issues, money went to other things :(

I guess I just have to wait for a while.

I have no key for the boot/engine cover.Should one of the other keys lock this?

Hi kier

If you remove the lock barrel it should have a number on it, you should be able to get a new key for it from Lotus with this number.

I there is no number or you can,t get a key for it if you send me the barrell one of locksmiths at work recon they can cut a key for it!!!

PM me if you want to try this route

I have three keys for mine Ignition and rear hatch keys look the same, i have painted a white mark on the ignition key to tell the difference.

The third key is for the filler cap and look completely different

My ignition key does my boot.

It is a British Leyland part (I just had mine copied)

The petrol caps are Toyota :)

Then the doors are Morris Marina :angry / Range Rover!

....but not on mine! :P:)

Just a bit of info that may be handy,when I got my car the barrel was knackered according to the locksmith I took it to (he also had an Esprit!).Steve at SJ said they are as rare as hens teeth but if you can locate an old Lotus Sunbeam Talbot the whole mechanism will fit with a bit of fiddling,there is a club that races them and they strip off all the bits they dont need.
