    Having in the past used button pads that I'd got from Andy (Spurs fan in a coupe) to refurb my coupe keys it seems that although they looked OK for a while ( the last one I did was back Jan 2018) the old rubber eventually breaks down being 18 to 20 years old. So looked on eBay and found some replacement pads

    The actual button pattern isn't the same as OEM but it will be OK for me.

    Took less than 5 mins to do both my keys. Both keys work perfectly.
