    Default Key Fobs

    The rubber face of my key fob has been damaged so that you can't see the symbols (boot open, lock etc) anymore.

    This is a bit poor for a two year old car.

    Can you get these replaced easily?
    Can I get another of ebay and do a transplant??

    Bet I can't claim it on my VX warranty could I as it wear and tear???

    Yes it is a bit poor - but mine is 4 years old and has no real signs of wear. If you go to a VX garage for a new one then its about £60 for a new one -supply, cut and coded. Although some charge a lot more. They only do the new flip key now as I assume you have the fixed type?
    Cheapest soloution is to get one off e-bay, have it recoded and just swap the metal blade key bit over.
    I would have thought they would say its wear and tare -down to how you treat it
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    Thanks for the reply.

    £60 isn't as bad as I thought, and the fixed type should be more robust.

    But ebay should be cheaper. Where can you get the keys recoded?

    Pretty much only at VX. As for a new key the flip design is much better imo. It should be £37.50 for the key plus coading and fitting. Some garages charge over £100 for this. Do a search for flip key.
