Re: How can I open the Alfa key?
Sometimes the black key seems to be glued together along it's back edge so it's a matter of trying to prise it open slowly. Get a screwdriver in where the battery was and try to gently prise it open. Use a stanley knife blade and try to lever the far side open. It wil come but it can be tricky.
Go to alfa156.net and look at the document I did in the tips section - it has some photos. It also shows you the microswitches. They can be changed but you need a fine soldering iron tip and a steady hand.
Yes you can change the key motherboard but you'll need to get the ECU reprogrammed - at the main dealer that's going to cost about £60 (guess) so in my opinion it's better to change the microswitch.
