First we Always start out with OEM Toyota parts when ever and where ever possible ........



- Aftermarket brand TOYOTA Lock's from say NAPA or You Local Lock Smith Shop or Ebay South East ASIA stuff simply suck's , Period

- Don't waist your hard earned money on Rubbish ......


- So do ANY hardware style Keys from Home depot or any Locksmith shop , = " Trash " !

- OEM TOYOTA FJ80 Key Blanks are made form SOLID NICKLE Alloy , NOT cheezy Yellow Brass

- next we remove the face cap using a TOYOTA SST Tool

- Then Remove ALL old tumblers and Then insert the New Correct ones

- there are 6 sizes or CODES

I had called around to several local Toyota dealers to try and get this key cut. No one seemed to be able to do it. However IME no dealer really knows what the hell they're doing anyway. I had to explain to the parts counter guy at Lexus that my LX450 was made by Toyota.

Yes. That is the LX450 style I have. To my knowledge, all LX450s, at least in the US, have that internal cut style.

I have also had a PIA experience, even at a Lexus dealer, trying to get one cut.


is this what you ran into at your Local Lexus Parts Dept. ?

HDJ81's use the same key as LX450's. I was able to get spare keys cut at a local lock and safe company and they worked fine. However, at the time sourcing an OEM blank would have required re-keying the entire truck which was $600 from Japan vs $25. YMMV
