Default HELP!! CODED KEY NEEDED FOR MERC

Hubby and son on way to house in a Merc Atago lorry, key bent in lock, if they stop they won't be able to get it going again!!

Where can they get a coded key from, they are on the coast road about three hours from Nerja coming from Barcelona.

Thanks

I think you can only get them from main dealers with proof of ownership.

It will of course have to be a Mercedes Commercial dealer & leave the bugger running.

Thanks for the information about the main dealer, I rang a mechanic in Torrox and he suggested a merc dealer in Velez Malaga, apparently they should be open tomorrow, but whether a key can be got at such short notice is anyone's guess.

I've passed on the message to my son, many thanks.

Last night 200 killometers from Barcelona, whilst asleep, he got visitors in his cab, they took all his clothes, wallet etc., He found an old pair of jeans and chased them, shouted at them to take the money, but give back the wallet because it has a photo of his daughter in it (thought they might have some sort of heart). They asked about the cards and he said no good to them only for the firm's use for diesel, they believed him and threw it all back and his clothes, took 25 euros and ran when he promised not to call the police, (luckily he speaks spanish, they appeared to be Algerian.
He probably left the door open (stupid boy) shut the curtains and fell asleep, surrounded by other lorries!
Then they had the gall to come back into the car park as he drove away (he thought it wise to get back on the road after that)
AMAZING!!! Lucky he didn't get his blooming throat cut eh.
