Screwdriver required (not the cocktail)


Yaris59
 Share

Recommended Posts

I have a Yaris 59 plate.  The spare key fob remote isn’t working and I suspect it needs the Battery changing.  I’m just wondering if anyone knows the specific screwdriver size needed to remove the very small fastening screw.  The fob is a valeo 736716-A.

Im hoping that I can just buy the one screwdriver I definitely need, e.g. Philips PH000 or whatever, rather than have to buy a multiple piece set and hope it has the right size.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Get a watch repairer to do it along with battery. £5.

Of course we all have handy ones of those locally these days ... 🙂

£5??? You could buy everything you need to DIY from eBay for less than that!

NB: For demonstration purposes only; I don't actually recommend buying those things! The screwdriver, while cheap and nifty, is fragile so you're better off getting a better quality Precision Screwdriver kit for long term use; The coin cells I'm just guessing at so they may not fit your key, and also they are a ripoff as you can get 5 for a bit little bit more than what they're charging for one!

Yes, Timpsons.  In rural Lincolnshire I know 3 within 10 miles. I don't know if they give a lifetime guarantee but they do for watch barriers.  Standard 12 months and for a modest extra fee, for life.

I would buy the cheap one, because you are only going to use it on the very odd occasion. If I was using a tool on a regular basis I would have the best available. That’s my rule of thumb 👍🚘

We aren't rural, but our nearest is 7.5 miles away, so 15 mile return trip. That's another couple of quid in cost (plus the time and inconvenience and that bug that I hear is causing trouble 🙂 ).

Spot on.  Couple of quid from B&Q, couple of quid for a Battery, job done. 
 

Cheers, much appreciated.
