Replacement Key Fob - outer only

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I need to replace the casing only on my key ( see below) - does anyone know if this is just a simple - Timpsons - job, or do I need anywhere else. It is just the cover that is over theunlock  button that is cracked :-

I bought the whole key from motor.hongda2. on ebay.

It was only about £20.

He seems to be out of stock of this frequency (314mhz, I think) at the moment.


I realise you are looking for the casing only.

The casing contains the chip so you will need to match that to the car.

Timpsons were not able to help me.

Toyota would not supply a key either, as the car is a grey import.


I found a local specialist who cut the key and programmed the fob unit.

He made the new key a master key.


All works perfectly, so at least that proves the fob product.


So there are ways of achieving this, but, in my case, it wasn't very easy to find the right method.
