Re: Need trunk key (Sparty)

Welcome to Swedespeed, Doug.<p>If you need one fast go here...<p><A HREF="http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/VOLVO-1800-P1800-BODY-KEY-BLANK-TYPE-FS-ROUND-HEAD_W0QQitemZ140316415889QQcmdZViewItem" TARGET="_blank">http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors...wItem</A><p>...and more eBay 1800 stuff here...<p><A HREF="http://stores.shop.ebay.com/R-L-VOLVO-1800-PARTS__W0QQ_armrsZ1" TARGET="_blank">http://stores.shop.ebay.com/R-...mrsZ1</A><p>Another option is to start a new Swedespeed topic here...<p><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zeroforum?id=39" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zeroforum?id=39</A><p>If the trunk is unlocked and can be opened a locksmith can make a new key from a generic blank. Also, the lock is very easy to pick.<p>If you have ANY 1800 keys handy try them in the trunk lock for grins.<p>Good luck.<p>George Dill<p>

Re: Need trunk key (Sparty)

George is right on.<p>I would like to add that once you have found a key file down the thumb grip so as to have a square snug fit into the latch slot.<p>There is also a decal you can purchase to emphasis the latch (I don't have one yet).<p>In addition I have made a duplicate and when the car goes in for service I automatically put the key in the latch -- so as sure as the sun will come up someone is going to muscle that latch and break it.<p>Good luck.

Re: Need trunk key (stev vanveit)

I've never owned or even ridden in any kind of 1800 but based on my experience with other Volvos of vintages throughout the 1800 years and on both sides, does the door key NOT fit the rear hatch?

Not for me.<br>Key #1 - ignition<br>Key #2 - gas cover and passenger doors.<br>Key #3 - latch glass lock and driver console storage between seats.<br>Key #4 - security immobilizer, self destruct ignition cover - aftermarket. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0">
