Key fob button fix for S1 Meta M300 key

Post by deggles » Thu Apr 12, 2018 1:09 pm

Hi guys, just thought I would share this fix I found over on Pistonheads for anyone with a knackered S1 Meta key fob: https://www.pistonheads.com/gassing/top ... &t=1468151

Basically you can replace the perished rubber button with a modified one from a Smart ForTwo (fully in keeping with the Lotus parts-bin philosophy ;) ) I thought about spraying the button with black Plastidip but I think it looks good as it is in 'Lotus yellow' 8-)

The buttons are easily found online, I got one from eBay for £2 delivered: http://ebay.co.uk/itm/151236717032 :thumbup:

When mine was at Hofmanns they used a rubber grommet, I’ll post a pic it looks better than new!
