Hi Are you still there?

Hi there thanks

Ok in this situation I would advise you replace the drivers door lock and the ignition barrel assembly and have 2 new keys cut and coded

As the stolen keys will be able to open the doors using the central locking or the manual lock

Thus allowing access to the vehicle and ability to turn the ignition barrel/switch

Most insurance companies cover this free of charge

This would give you total peace of mind as reprogramming the keys won’t make much difference

If you need further help or technical assistance on this issue going forward

please let me know and I will do my upmost to assist you

Is this something only a ford dealer can do and what is the likely cost

Hi there

No most mobile locksmiths can carry this job out on site and is a cheaper optiom than a Main dealer

I would say you would be roughly £150-£200 for a movie locksmith

But you could phone around for best deal
