Replacement Key Fob

Hey guys,

I've got the broken key fob problem with my 2 button remote.

Have any of you guys suffered the same problem and what did you do to fix it? I am loathe to go to Mercedes for a replacement.

All of the fobs on ebay UK seem to be for the newer 3 button remotes.

Hello Muz!

In regards to your question, the three button remotes from Ebay DO work just'll just have a third button that doesn't do anything. The change out of the guts from the old remote to the new remote isn't necessarily hard, its getting the old remote apart that will take the most work.

You have some choices on


The only caution I'd advise is to first ask the seller to make sure the battery door is removable. I bought one once, and it wasn't.
