My friend just bought an 87 sport for $150, with no title, we have to fight to get that back, the thing that sucks though, is that i think i lost the only key to it.



Is there a number written on one of the lock cylinders that i can use to have mazda make a new key? I knew i could do that with a toyota.



Or do i just need to take the trunk lock to a lock smith.

trunk lock to the locksmith, takes less then 5 minutes to get the lock out, locksmith should charge about $25 to make it with 2 keys.

Use a slide hammer with a dry wall screw in it....sit in the passenger seat, screw it into the ignition, then slide the weight back, the key lock cylinder should just pull right out and you can use a flat head screwdriver to turn the ignition switch.....but if anyone asks I didn't tell you that

I have the same problem with my convertible, I only had one key and lost it. I just asked the parts desk at the local dealership, they told me to bring them the title and registration, they'd give me a number I could take to a locksmith, and they'd make me a key.

In the process of buying my TII, my friend locked the only key in the car. I was like "Oh, ****!", then I tried the key for my 626 and it opened the door.
