    Thanks, that sounds like a plan. I've never successfully brazed anything before, so this could be a first!
    Can Lancia dealers supply new keys from the code? Is there still such a thing as a Lancia dealer?

    Lancia dealers? In Britain?? Hahaha!! Although, I dunno, maybe some of the old Lancia outlets might still have some odds and ends hanging about.

    Maybe you could take a leaf out of crime novels/films, take a wax impression of your old key and then use that to cast a replacement....then put the original back in the drawer so you'll never know you borrowed it. Or not.

    You could ask on BetaBoyz? Someone there will know but you used to be able to get a key cut to code - and if you lost the keys, that number was also on the back of the glovebox lock on the plastic catch.

    Well I still haven't brazed anything successfully. Melted the brass key and failed to get anything to stick to the washer nor get the brazing rod to liquify.

    Have you tried silver soldering? It's excellent at joining brass.

    Chris, send me the key & I will hard silver solder it, from what I can tell they are nickel, 40 years in the Jewellery trade & 24 years of Beta ownership gives me a chance!

    Tim.

    Thanks both. I tried silver solder as well as brazing rod - both the same problem. components red hot but they don't liquify / flow into the joint, maybe I need more flux.

    Thanks for the offer Tim. I've deployed thermoplastic to repair for the moment.
