    Hi, I'm Dave and just brought a FR-V due to an increasing size family, the car is a 2006 Sport and we are well impressed with it.

    As per norm, I've join in search of help, Another I hear you say :Ohdear:

    having done all the obvious (to me) enquiries and searches I am in need of replacement roof bar keys which i didn't get with the car. I've contacted my local dealer and also replacement roof bar key specialist but no luck :Frown:

    Any help or guidance other than drilling then off of where to look will be great appreciated, the number on the barrel is 31 if that helps.

    Thanks in anticipation of help and HELLO :Thumbup:

    Since you're only in Brum, it's worth giving Holdcroft Honda a call. They are or preferred dealership, based in Stoke-on-Trent. They are very helpful, and may well be able to source the keys you're after.

    Welcome to the club Dave, with keys and locking nuts it's often the case that each model has a pool of potential keys which get fitted at random. Let's say there's 40 key pattern variations for your model, and no way to know which your particular car has.

    Where locking nuts are concerned, I know the dealers have a master key, it may be the same case with this. As others have said give HH a call and see what they suggest, my other thought is that if this key code was ever noted down, it's likely to be in the Service Book for the car.

    Hi Guys, thank you for the welcomes.

    Chunky, My local dealer said they only supply roof bar kits which the keys are part of, must have been too much bother to look further me thinks so won't bother them again :Epic Fail:

    HH as Nels suggested and also Lings Honda, European Parts Centre, Norfolk both said they can supply them thankfully, so a set of keys on the way to me in the next couple of days for £30 including postage.
    I did think after I should really have tried to contact the last owner :Messed: but done now.

    Thanks for the help and welcomes though guys, will be hanging around as looks good in here :Thumbup:

    Total rubbish, Honda genuine accessory with locks the keys can be located and ordered, it’s quite clear this dealer your approached has not looked the Honda logistics page.. It’s not the fact one dealer in the country can do it and others can't all of them can do it..

    Holdcroft can do it with ease as they know where to look. why people go anywhere else as when you speak to them they know perciesly what you want!

    Welcome to the club @Bones126 :Hey:
