phone police and then phone car insurarance

AA/RAC or whichever breakdown service you use should help. If not, you'll probably need a Citroen main dealer.

BREAKDOWN COMPANY SAID THEY CAN ONLY TOW CAR HOME................................... LOOKS LIKE IT MAIN DEALER

Normally you need the log book to get a replacement key! What a bummer! I'm sure the main dealer could help you, perhaps give them insurance certificate etc. If you are worried about the car being stolen is their anyone you know that may have a wheel clamp as a precaution?

I've asked him - but he can't remember - there can't be that many in Darlington

Didn't need to change locks or anything - quite amazing really - his was a Nissan Almera

Caps are classed as shouting, it's bad manners and aggressive.

i'll let you off then my friend lost his car key a few weeks back after we had been out and he had to pay either £75 or £85 (can't remember) for a replacement think he had to go through the main dealer.

my dad had to pay 170 for an extra key.. if your one has a built in alarm you will be looking to pay the same...

Id go to a citroen dealers with whatever paperwork I have for the car and some Id. I doubt theyll do the key without the logbook so i'd probably have to buy whichever window is cheapest and easiest to fit while i'm there:oops:

A window is cheaper and easier to change than a full lock set.
Remember to get a spare key once you sort the problem.

Can you wait? Main dealer has all the key info usually, but I'm not sure how it will work if you have no log book to prove ownership.

A spare for a Picasso is around £100! :-( You could get just the key (without immobiliser) for about £10 but this would just get you into the car and couldn't start it.
