    Remote Fob

    Alright fellas,
    had to ask how is the battery changed on the fob?and would it need reprogramming of any sort?both of my fobs seem to be a bit slow in responding have to press the button numerous times before it works.
    Also would tracking be needed after fitting a new set of wheels?
    cheers

    Arrow battery

    Just get a new battery and its easy to take apart ..
    wouldn't need reprogramming . And you dont have to do tracking after fitting new alloys..

    Use a screwdriver to prise the blade and transponder apart below the 4 rings using the recess. Then using the screwdriver, split apart the rectangle transponder part to reveal the internal circuits and batteries. IIRC you need 2 x CR1620 batteries, got 5 from Fleabay for 2.50. After this you then need to reset the key with your car, check out your manual for how to do this or have a look here: Programming Keys
