The rubber piece on my key fob wore out and couldn't lock the car remotely, a bit of a nuisance having to use the key which only locks all doors when using the driver's side lock. A new fob was far too expensive.

There are quite a few Ebay sellers with new rubber bits but I'm too impatient to wait for postal delivery.

Anyhows, the rubber piece has moulded rods which go into holes and they operate the switches. So, found an O-ring with same diameter as the rod - 3.6 mm, and using a sharp knife cut a section of about 4 mm long, put that in the hole and covered it with a piece of electrical tape. Voila, my key fob works again.

Good job!

It's great to hear there are still a few folk who will take the time to fix something rather than throw it away and buy a crap replacement from China.

Thanks for sharing.

Scott.

You'll appreciate this Scott - the perfect sized O-ring is the big one for the oil filter cover of the diesel motor:)

As I do all my own servicing/maintenance and seldom replace that O-ring have quite a supply.

Yeah, recycling...I like it.

Why don't you always replace the O-ring though?
