This job was to replace lost keys for an old imported Brazilian VW. Despite being long discontinued in Europe, this model continued to be made in South America. The first stage (before EEPROM programming a new transponder into the immobiliser) is to make the metal key blade.
We couldn’t manage to decode the locks on the vehicle using a special tool or by impressioning. The importers were unable to provide key information so the only option was to remove the steering wheel, remove the steering lock then strip the entire ignition lock.
