    Hi All

    Both my keys seem to have split on the push button sections. I know it sounds daft but it look like it has cracked due to the cold weather???

    Off I went onto ebay and purchased a replacement key shell. Arrived this morning, took old key apart - all good, but as I go to put the pcb into the replacement shell, a component fell off as the case was quite tight and probably a rubbish copy.

    I phone up Merc and they want £230 for a replacement. Just wondering if there is anyone is able to recommend me a place to either re code a key or repair at reasonable cost?

    Any help appreciated. Merry Xmas to all too.:):)

    I think Television (Malcolm ) is the man for repairing your key if you still have all the bits

    I bought the 3button case from eBay America and its perfect cost about £13 all in and put my PCB in to it fine
