Roof rack keys!

My local dealer tells me that they do not sell replacement keys for the roof rack nor lock cylinders! I need to take the rack off of my Touareg and I don't have the key! The dealer says to buy a whole new rack!

Does anyone know where I can find a key? There is a lock code written on the key cylinder.

Alternatively, Can anyone out there email me a picture of their key? It may help the locksmith make a new one if I have to go that route....

Thanks
Jeremy

Go here:
http://www.thuleracks.com/thule/product_locks.asp?Key=true&type=thule

Input the lock code on your lock cylinder and Thule will send you new keys.

Should only cost a couple of dollars.

The thule site worked great. To find the keys go to the main site, click technical info, spare parts, then choose "Thule keys" from the drop down menu.

The keys are plain metal, no plastic handle....not really a big deal as you harldly ever use them!

Thanks for the help! Keys were $2.50, shipping was $4.99!

Great Post! I just purchased a '05 "Demo" and the roof rack keys were "misplaced". This was much easier than calling a locksmith.

I bought my replacement keys from my local VW service centre (in Hong Kong). All they needed was the serial number that is located on the barrel.
