I got that casing off E Bay last week for about 3.50.
The guy is sending me a replacement as the first one wouldn't snap together

Just bring it with you, they're probably right in that if you solder it using a normal soldering iron you'll destroy it, there are other ways to do it, can be cold=soldered if required.

TheDr,

Just a quick one. My spare key has stopped working using the remote. Assumed the battery was dead but it's meant to charge up when being used. So I started using the spare key, including a long journey of 4 hours and it still didn't work...

Any ideas?

My regular key has started playing up a little bit too which is weird.

Someone told me that you can put the key on top of one of those contactless inductive toothbrush charging bases to see if that charges it up properly, any truth in that?

Sorry for all the questions and for the slight thread hi-jack!
