Re: new red key case...

ebay is probably the cheapest for this. A scrappie usually wants to sell it with locks and ecu as a package.

Re: new red key case...

its tough with these keys. You will find spare keys on ebay but the problem is you wont get the key blade out with out damaging the plastic case. You can replace the side where you cange the battery but not the other side. I went through 4 keys which all broke when opening the boot. Had to get mew keys fom alfa all coded etc. very expensive about £100.00 a key.

good luck

Re: new red key case...

hey people,

thanks for trying to help.

jeff, i understand about only being able to change one side of the case. its annoying, cos the side which can be easily changed (the part which doesnt hold the blade), is the part which is still intact. its the actual main body which holds the blade which has smashed, lol. oh well, il go back to alfa.

Re: new red key case...

Smashed or just broken?

You can fit the blade to a new body but you have to use some pretty good glues. Once you have done it a few times you get the idea of the least destructive way to do it.

Get a spare form a scrapper or ebay. An eBay one would probably go for about £20.
