Does anyone know of someone who can repair Mercedes keys that look like the one in the picture? The key starts the car but the remote no longer unlocks the doors.

It belongs to my mum's A170 and looks like it got wet somewhere along the line. The battery holder is a bit rusty as is the emergency key bit. I've tested the battery with a voltmeter and it registers 3v as it should.

The other issue is that this is a spare key and neither the original key nor the spare key have an emergency key bit that unlocks the doors. This means that if the remaining remote dies there will be no way to get into the car. I'm assuming the dealer that ordered the key either got the key bit profile wrong or the locks have been changed at some stage and the key and vin no longer match.

Any suggestions gents?
