Key fob

The battery in my key fob has just gone. 2 questions...

what batterys does it take? is it best just going halfords or can you get them for next to nothing somewhere else?

how do you actually get the back of the key off? just lever it off? :)

Battery for the normal key fob is a 'CR2032' (flat battery about the size of a 20p) and you can get them from the supermarket etc. The other side to the button just slides off, you might need to use a screwdriver to help it on it's way though.

no its not a 2032, no Renault apart from the new Laguna III uses a 2032

depends on the car but more than likely its a 1220, the key slides apart, dont prise it apart, if your having trouble pop a screwdriver into the hole where the key ring goes and use it like a lever to start it sliding apart then take it out and it should come apart easy
Changed the battery, turns out the fob is just dead. It seems to have lost its spring action so when you click the button, it doesnt click it just pushes down.

New key time? :dapprove:

check inside to see if the switch has broken away from the circuit board on the other side, you may be able to solder it back on
