    It is your property, why should they keep it?

    Different if the locks have to get changed, that happened to me on my last Vectra!
    I had to hand the car over, with all the keys
    I was then given a full set of new keys for the new locks
    The old locks and keys were disposed of by the dealership

    Is it definitely the spring? I've had a lot of problems with the flip key at work, and it turned out just to be dust & dirt in the hinge...a squirt of WD40 and it was good as new again. Worth a try?

    If they gonna replace the key with a new one, theres no harm in asking to keep the old one, but I wouldnt be surprised if they retain it.

    Considering they are replacing it under warranty (i.e. as the key is only a few months old) they would have the right to keep it - after all if Comet or Currys etc were replacing a TV under warranty, what would be the chances of them letting you keep the old one?

    you cannot have the faulty key back if you are getting a replacement key under warranty,the faulty item has to be signed back in and possibly sent back to vauxhall,you could ask the dealer to keep the key and return it back to you if vauxhall say to dispose of the key when the time comes,but that could take upto 6 months
