  • Key Fob Replacement

    Just after some help.

    One of my keys seems to have lost the spring at some point so the blade doesn't flick out.

    Can this be repaired?

    I have a donor fob, just interested to see if and how it can be done before I break one or the other

    Thanks.

    The keys are glued together so you can't open them without braking stuff. I bought a cheap one from ebay, put in the PCB and swapped the blade, worked fine for me. It even survived a drop in a toilet...

      I guess I'll just keep it as a spare.
      Do you have a link to he one you bought ??

      Does the blade just swap straight over

        This one, but I don't know if they ship to UK. The blade swap was indeed very easy.

              Guys, thank you. I ordered a new replacement key fob off ebay, gubbins gutted and refitted into new and it's honestly like a new factory key fob for £4.00.

              Very pleased.

                  Thanks again.
                  I like things to just work, eventhough i will hopefully never have to use the spare key, its just needs to be right.

                  Right, next job....

                      I dread to think what the cost of programming that bad boy would be.

                          That one is for a B Insignia, I don't know if that has even been fitted in an A model...

                            They look amazing, A or B form.

                              Yes, they do. It was one of the reasons to buy my current one, the nice display
