    take the barrel from ya passenger side door, they have a special tool that takes a print of the key that it's meant to be and they carve you out a new key, take the passenger side door as it's less worn than drivers door

    unlucky. pretty sure if you take the lock out and take it to a "key grinder place" they can get a blank key and make a new one.

    i snapped a key in my ex's car door, luck be it that i was able to open it.
    took the barrel out, got the other half of the key out. then just take the the 2 halves to a lock smith to make a new one.

    Pfffttt..... I use my house key to open and start my spoontah.

    maybe you should just get a paddle pop stick and use that for a key?

    but yeah like most people said locksmiths can make you a new key if you take the barrel too them

    get the ones that come to you...

    get them to cut one from the 2 halfs.. and then then can keep test fitting on the lock.. each time they try the barell will leave fresh marks so they no where to cut.
