    Default Flip key fob problems

    I did a search but all it came up with is how to convert from a prefacelift key to a facelift key.

    I got two flip keys with my 2008 Vectra but both of them have problems.

    The first one is that the keyblade won't lock in or out in any position. What could this be and how can I fix it?

    Second is that the buttons on the second key won't unlock or lock the car unless you press them a dozen times each.

    Is it possible to open the keys without damaging them and fix them myself without going to a dealers?

    Thanks in advance
    Dave

    I bought these for mine as the buttons were worn, made them work and look like new

    Do they come with the micro switches or are you saying its the rubber that stops it working properly?
    Can you split the fob easily without damaging it?

    Thanks for the reply

    These are just the pads, and they just pull out then you will see the buttons

    They are heat welded together and you need to cut it apart.

    The link below shows how to convert a normal key to a flip one, but it also shows how to get the flip one apart.
