Key fob case

Recommended Posts

I bought a very nice used XF the other week and one of the few niggles is that the chrome plating on the key fob is peeling badly.

Is it possible to get a replacement case? The electronics are fine and I'm assuming it would be easy enough to swap over the internals.

Anyone done this?

Welcome to the club, Timothy.

 

Ebay will turn up a case for you,  I replaced the bit of the   case which shows the characters on the buttons, so I don't think it will be too difficult to replace the whole case.  I did it several times on a Rover Sterling.

 

Regards

 

Peter.

Cheers, I've found a few on eBay but it looks like it's possible to get a whole remote for not a lot more elsewhere on the net. Maybe I need to research how to chrome plate plastic? ;-)
