[DML] Re: Missing door key, possible to cut new one without copy?

If you remove the cylinder a locksmith can "read" the code and cut a
key to fit. Use the cylinder from the passenger door. It is usually
much less worn. Another option would be to change the car over to the
1 key (later) system. That involves removing the cylinder in the
steering column. On some of the early cars DMCH can look up the code
from the vin #. I would call DMCH and speak to James Espey before
tearing the car apart and see what they can offer. Try calling the
person you bought the car from. They may be nice and give you the key
(if they can find it). That is the cheapest option. You should be able
to find the code above the headliner of the driver's door.
