Keys to lock the doors
« on: February 06, 2016, 04:46:50 AM »
Newbie alert! I just bought a 1970 bus,  love it. However the ignition switch has been replaced and the owner had no door keys,  so I have no way to lock.  Do I have to replace all door locks or can new keys be made using Vin number? :imnew:

Hello Jim,

Welcome to the site. No such luck with the vin number. I've had this problem several times, I took the door handles out and took it to a lock smith and they used the ID number that is stamped into it to make keys.
If you have a VW shop that makes keys they might be able to.

If the rest of the locks haven't been changed you should be good. There are you tube videos showing how to change the lock to work with other keys.
