    key fob

    Greetings all, i have just purchased a vauxhall astra club 1.6 on a 03 plate, not bad condition at all and is a good performer.
    My initial problem is the feyfob buttons are missing and the battery is loose, the battery is not a problem, i can sort that out. i just need to know what the fob actually looks like so i can get a replacement casing, can someone provide a photo or link to one please, greatly appreciated.

    If it has a LED it will look like this http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VAUXHALL-V...item3cc781dfe0

    Thanks for the reply, i don't think my fob has an LED, looks plastic where the LED should be, i may be wrong, would that make a difference ?

    I managed to fix this, my kind neighbour gave me a side of a fob with the buttons and a PCB with buttons on. I desoldered the buttons off the PCB then noticed i had also lifted some pads off the board, this could be a problem if i did it to my PCB.
    On inspection of the buttons, i noticed the top is clipped on, so seeing as the base of my button was still there, i simply swapped the top part, soldered the battery back in place, job done

    I had a problem with the battery pack being loose inside the key fob and was rattling. Buttons did not work at all.. Not good with soldering so I just put a peace of folded paper inside the fob to keep pressure on the battery pack against the electronics... working like a champ for a few weeks now
