    Be careful, there are a lot of cheap and nasty Chinese key bodies on Ebay that require considerable modification to get the two halves to fit together correctly with the PCB etc in them. Whatever you do don't leave the immobiliser chip in the old key body!

    You can use 2nd hand remotes and have new bar codes generated to get it programmed. Just make sure when purchasing that it has the white sticker on the chip otherwise it can not be done.

    Ok, finally got round to fixing the spare key - absolute doddle (yes, the old one was a mess - storing superglue in the same drawer not a wise move!) Replacement fob 3.99 from discounted-fobs on Fleabay https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rover-75-...53.m2749.l2649 - just make sure EVERYTHING comes out carefully and fits back in snug - seemples

    And while I was on a roll, changed the nearside wing mirror cover that I had managed to graze along the wall of the house - another piece of cake - only 7 from bas-mini-spares on EBay and 5 minutes to change rather than respraying - lugs are on the underside, so pop off and refit starting at the top - https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Rover-25-...53.m2749.l264920190224_140539.jpg20190224_140756.jpg20190224_140911.jpg
