Re: Key Advice - 145 2.0 CL
Can you get a new housing?
I'm not aware of this as being an option.
Is there supposed to be 2 batteries?!?
Yes, 2x CR2016 (3v). These supply the current to the radio for remote operation of the alarm. The black chip is for the car's CODE system. It's read by a coil in the barrel of the lock. No battery required for that.
What is involved in getting a replacement key and what is the cost?
There were threads about this mentioning £1000+ for a replacement set.
Best approch your local dealer for a quote. There may be other options though.
