Good to know. Toyota just told me 4 weeks and $20 for a key blank :eekfacepalm:
There isn't anybody that I have found locally that still carries this specific blank. I couldn't care less about OEM, I just want something that works seeing as I have a bad habit of losing things :32:The blank for our keys (82-5) is often missing at the standard WalMart/Home Depot/Lowes key section. I've had better luck at the Ace Hardware stores.
Often the head of the key won't fit (in the 84, maybe others, particularly the ILCO blank) - a minor bit of grinding will take it down so it will fit.
And if you want OEM, Mark at Vancouver Toyota (sponsor of this forum). If you want a "perfect" key from the code, pull the passenger side door lock and send him the code stamped on it (assuming your pass side is the same lock as the rest). [NB: I need to do this myself on the spare set of locks I have]
