Key Codes

Posted on August 26, 2013 at 11:42pm 9 Comments

Hello All,
I have one of the original keys to my 63 and it has the code of 9477. Is there anyway to find out the code of the other key. It would be great to get a set of keys cut to code just like when she came off the showroom floor.

Thanks in Advance,

Front Window Track

Posted on August 26, 2013 at 11:10pm 3 Comments

Hello All,
My driver side front window keeps coming off the track. I have fixed it three times and it keeps bouncing out. Does anyone know of a permanent fix for this issue. Is this a common problem or just bad luck on my part.

Thanks,
