a locksmith will be able to hook you up with a lock and barrel set with some new keys.... i dont think they can cut keys without a master to copy from

locksmiths can cut keys from looking at the number on the barrel of the ignition, door and boot locks...

relax...obvisouly you got in to it... Go to the wreckers and pick yourself a new ignition barrel, two door locks and trunk lid lock and you can have the door locks all in in about 45 mins and the iginition barrel takes about 45 by itself. No big problems..btw, last time I had to do that they charged me $50 for the lot :)

Pajero LWB Wagon, Power/economy what's that ???
A Locksmith is able to cut a new key if you take in the door lock. They usually ask for the passenger side lock and the bootlock to work from.
This is because they are less worn than the drivers door lock.
Pay $25 - 30 for the new key go home, reinstall the locks, try the new key and find it opens the door and the boot but will not turn in the ignition barrell because it is worn. Very common with older well used cars. I learnt the hard way myself.
I'd follow 12Volt King's advice as it is quicker and easier and Lasers/Meteors are very common.

If you've got the original service book they key number should be in there if the supplying dealer wasn't too slack.

If you don't have this, the key number is normally stamped on the lock barrels, and the boot one is usually easiest to get to on the MX6. They key number should be a letter and 4 numbers i.e. D1234 if i'm remembering right.

Once you have the key number you should be able to get a ready cut key from Mazda without too much hassle if you go in with chassis number and key number (or you used to be able to when I worked for a Mazda dealership).

If your car has a factory immobiliser the key may need coding so it will start the car. We used to charge the equivalent of about $125 to cut and code a key.
