Key Remote Button Broken 166

Hey Guys,
The main key (the one that folds away) for my 166 has decided to stop working properly. There are two buttons on the key, a large round button for the doors and a smaller button for the boot.
The boot button still works but it sounds like the sensor under the door button has come away (I can hear it jiggling around inside under the button).
Is there anyway of taking the key apart so I can try and repair it!? I don't fancy spending $350 on a new key, or having to unlock the doors myself (so peasant!)

Re: Key Remote Button Broken 166

it's easy enough if you can solder small parts. took one off mine apart to fix the 'flip' mechanism. switches are the usual surface mount dimple type. IIRC the screw holding it together is hidden under the logo
