Hi

Try this previous post, I had the same problem easily solved for around £10 a key.

Thanks for that, I have replaced two fobs now, but the quality is only average, and it would be nice to have the logo on the key!! :clap:

Would imagine our Kev will/might come south of the Border, if Mr Salmond gets his way!!!! If not he,s always welcome 60 miles west in the middle of the Irish sea.

I've started on the tunnel to England already.

Few people round here undecided what they want to be, mind .... Saw 4 dingys on the river slap bang in the middle on Friday - half in England and half in Scotland :)

Hello, I will not start a new topic, so I'll ask here.

I bought a new old RAV4.3 and got 2 keys (keyless)

But they had a problem with keys and they lost plastic that hold the Battery on the chip in the key.

Is it possible to get one anywhere. At Toyota dealer said they just have the whole key (400 eur+)

I need just one small plastic, or if you have any idea, how to hold the Battery in the place... (have tried a few DIY, but no luck)

I need this:

Hi Ipka,

I think your best bet is to try and find a copy one on e bay, and then put your insides in the new fob. 2nd, I would try a scrapyard and try a used unit, again replacing it with your inners!

Best of luck!

Toyota make the key cases out of butter as I have managed to break three. Stupid design with key just inside case so weakest point.. Easy to replace, but this time I've gone for a flip key designed one as it looks stronger and the remote internals will just swop straight in...

Happy raving

Remember this skeletal Battery holder bit is from a push button start T180, so comes under no strain at all. Had to replace two keys of wife's three door over last fortnight......anchor point within the fob is as Chatters says.....made of Anchor butter.

Anchor butter.

Kev, Isn't that somebody that gives the Derbyshire equivalent of a Glesga kiss? Anchor Butt-er??

Oh, forget it! S'not my fault, put it down to too many exchanges with a gooner-ised splaswegian.

Also No luck there. Been diving to the web (everywhere) looking and you got all other types of keys but for this one that I need, no way.

It's like thay made just 100 of them, and everyone is in use.
