    Are you saying you don't have you GA account anymore? Because the UA number is listed right there in your account. Click on the gear on the right side, then click the Tracking Code tab. That will give you everything you need.

    Having Google Analytics on your site does NOT increase your ranking.

    Sites with GA might tend to rank higher because they're paying attention to their stats and adjusting their SEO accordingly, but that is the ONLY connection.

    I think you need to go back to SEO 101.

    Changing he ID on your Google analytics will have no effect on your rankings.

    I do hope you are not charging someone for SEO services.

    reading between the lines it appears that someone else handled the site and set up the GA account. They have been removed and you dont have access to their account.

    If you have full access to the website you can do two things. Contact google and explain the issue and see if they will hand over info to you. If that doesnt happen, then you can just remove the code from the site and open a new account and put in a new code. All this will do is remove the invaluable history of how the site was previously performing.
