Volkswagen car key replacement

With over 56,000 cars sold in 2018, Volkswagen is easily the most popular European car brand in Australia.

This comes as no surprise – the name Volkswagen literally translates into “people’s car”, after all!

As such, the VW badge is a common sight on Melbourne’s roads – it’s also one of the most common car brands that Galmier Locksmiths is called to service.

Our Volkswagen auto locksmiths can resolve any key, lock or ignition problems with your VW, whether you drive a:

  • Classic Beetle

  • Transporter van

  • Amarok Ute

Whatever model you drive, our VW locksmiths can help

Locksmith service for your VW


Many cars automatically lock themselves for security, ensuring that should you forget to lock up, you won’t be leaving your car completely unsecured.

But what happens if your car keys are still inside when this happens?

If you’ve found yourself locked out of your Volkswagen, Galmier Locksmiths can help. In fact, we’re so confident in our ability to open locks, that we have a guarantee: if we can’t get you back into your car, you won’t have to pay!

Missing or broken keys

Galmier Locksmiths cuts replacement keys on-the-spot. Our vans are fully-equipped with all the essential locksmithing equipment you’d find in a kiosk or store – and that includes key cutters.

What’s more, we can even cut a replacement for your Volkswagen without the original to work off of!

That includes transponder keys, remote keys and even backup keys for cars that use keyless unlocking like many recent VW models do.

Ignition and lock problems

Sometimes the problem isn’t with your keys, but with the ignition or locks.

In these cases, Galmier Locksmiths can help by disassembling your lock or ignition and fixing the issue, whether that’s by replacing worn out wafers or removing debris and gunk from the chamber.

By the time we’re done, you’ll notice that inserting your keys is smoother and easier than before!

Not just passenger cars

In addition to passenger cars, Volkswagen also produces a wide range of commercial vans, many of which see service in small businesses, couriers and delivery services all over Melbourne.

If one of your drivers runs into trouble with their keys, lock, or ignition, this could spell disaster. You’ll have to frantically reschedule, reassign drivers and apologise for delays.

Our VW locksmiths don’t just unlock the car you use for your commute – our experience also extends to Volkswagen’s range of commercial vehicles, too!
