Damn alfa keys :(

One of the worst possible things happened to me today .I basically got locked out my own car lol.Well not really my keyfob broke and I couldnt unlock the doors with the fob therefore I could not disable the alarm and to make matters worse i was parked at a pay and display meter with 5 mins left on the clock lol.So after sitting there for a couple of minutes trying to gnaw the key apart i decided to phone my mum to see if she could bring my spare key to me .She picks up on like the last ring and suprise suprise shes shopping in bluewater .Women.I then used the boot unlock button as I know the alarm doesnt go off when this is opened and i always have a set of tools in there.I ended up having to cut the damn unlock button out with a stanley knife bat out the broken button and jab it back onto the circuit and after 5 minutes BEEP BEEEEP the doors opened .I quickly jumped in started it and drove home.Now i've ripped the key apart and im hoping I can find someone that can solder the button back on (im sh*t at soldering) and put the circuit board and blade into a new key fob any ideas ????????????????

Re: Damn alfa keys :(

There's a guy on ebay who might be able to fix it for you but soldering might be a problem as it's a bit heavy handed for these small circuit boards. The heat is the issue.

Anyway search for item number 220266829561
