Default Fuel Cap Key

Here's an interesting one for you guys......when I purchased my 95 XJS I didn't get a key for the fuel cap, so what options do I have? Anyone know where I can get one made? Can you buy the barrel and the key?

I've had a look on the auction sites and a replacements go for silly prices.

As always your thoughts are appreciated.

On my '88 the gas cap uses the ignition key. Is there supposed to be a separate key?

You either need a new cylinder with key

JA-JLM477 - Lock & Key

Or you can have a locksmith repin the cylinder you have to work with a key.

I think option a is the cheaper alternative. It's Part # JLM477

Oh, scratch that, I see that the part is not in stock.

You can remove the cylinder and have a locksmith key it any way you like... you will need the proper blanks though. Perhaps you can find someone selling their old keys. A locksmith can re pin the cylinder to existing keys too.

I've got a half dozen caps with keys for the convertibles from 83-91. If you know if they're the same key type I'd sell one for $10 plus whatever the shipping costs. That's with the key. I don't have any 92-96 XJS's so I don't know. I can't imagine it being different. Some people do ask the craziest prices for some Jaguar parts. That's why I started buying parts cars to keep all my XJS's up.
