well, just to conclude on this.....

So far ive got 2 quotes,

A mobile service quoted $180
and another locksmith quoted $60-80 but you either have to get the car towed there or take the barrel out (like mentioned above).....

Me thinks i'll do what most people are saynig and take the barrell out myself and to the locksmiths..... the only problem remains is.... Hopefully the NRMA will be able to open the doors to the car :lol:

mate easy way take ur papers to ford get them to look up the key code via the vin take the code to a locksmith and they should be able 2 cut the key without any disassembly, provided the locks havent been rekeyed in the past
