Repair Key Fob

Recommended Posts

The key to my 2008 E61 is buggered - just stopped working, wouldn't open the car or close it.


Fortunately, I located the spare and after driving it for 30 mins it was charged enough to work, but I want to get the old key repaired.


I saw this video on you tube about how to crack open the sealed key and replace the battery, with a bit of soldering involved. I've ordered a new key shell and rechargeable battery off ebay for a total of £10  and will try to fix the key soon (see links in video for where to buy case and battery).


Has anyone here attempted this fix ? and if so any tip or tricks that I should keep in mind ?
