    Key fob PCB removal (C5 RS6 - Not sure if that's important!)

    Hi,

    I was wondering if anybody knew how to safely remove the PCB from a 2003 key fob?
    I have a shiny new case for it but I'm concerned about breaking the PCB if I try to force it out.
    Can the gold caps on the corners be popped off??? (see attached photo)

    Cheers,
    Andy

    from what i remember the brass pin is has ridges on like this hose connector. When i've removed the PCB i've always just cut the edges of the case away where the pins are

    Thanks for the reply. Sorry for the late response, I've been on holiday.
    You are bang on with the pins! I had to "dremel" the PCB out in the end. It's in it's shiny new case now though so it's all good.

    Cheers,
    Andy
