If anyone is interested these are a few pictures of the project to\nrebuild a Corsa keyfob. Total cost was £18.50 and importantly NO\nPROGRAMMING AT ALL WAS NEEDED.\n\nThe original fob had demised in true Corsa fashion. In the picture you\ncan see the perished rubber and the switches after they were removed\nfrom the pcb.\n\nA fob was obtained from ebay which as it was listed as "brand new" I\nwent to £16 +£2.10 postage for.\n\nWhen the fob got here it didn't work! Suitable feedback about yet\nanother ebay rip off artist left but\ndecided to carry on and try to rebuild key as the body of the\nreplacement and its buttons did indeed\nseem as new. I suspect that it was faulty and was replaced by Vauxhall\nand the faulty one stuck on ebay.\n\nWith the fob opened up the bit I was dreading. Could I get the old push\nbutton switches off or not?\n\nTo my suprise, a quick dab with a VERY SMALL soldering iron at each end\nof the switch and they fell off!\n\nRemoving the new ones from their pcb was just as easy and went on the\nold pcb no problem.\n\nPut it all back together using the new rubber housing and fingers\ncrossed X! IT WORKED PERFECTLY!\n\nThe equivalent of a brand new keyfob for just £18.50 with no\nprogramming at all needed.\n\nI'd only advise trying this if you are experienced with surface mount\nsoldering or have nothing to lose. I.e. don't blame me if you fuck it\nup...\n\n\nPictures:-\n\n1 shows the fob in bits after the butons removed the arrows point to\nthe switch solder pads on the pcb\n\n[URL]http://members.aol.com/smellyfartybum/1.jpg[/URL]\n\n2 shows the perished switches after removal from the pcb\n\n[URL]http://members.aol.com/smellyfartybum/2.jpg[/URL]\n\n3 show my fingers holding a switch.
