hi guys I've just purchased a new blank key blade a fob as my old one the buttons have worn through
I know the old case is glued together I just wondering if you lovely chaps or chapesses have any tips on taking old fob apart to swap the innards in to new case
as much as I love my RR I didn't want to pay £200 plus on a key so that's why I just went for empty case and blade

If it's just the buttons, you just get new buttons? But I thought you'd now got a Sport now anyway or am I confusing you with another Karl?

I've split the original case by putting a Stanley knife blade in the joint then carefully squeezing the blade and fob in a vice.

@Gilbertd you got the right karl I have got the Sport and alas the key fob you can't change just the buttons you have to change the whole case
one cut and coded to my sport was 200 plus vat and anything up to 7 days delivery

when my brother did this on his BMW (unopenable keyfob battery had died on his one) he dremelled it open. The replacement/aftermarket case clipped together.
