Key fob rubber housing

Post by redonebe » Tue Apr 02, 2019 9:20 pm

Don't know how to describe it but this is happening:

Keyfob Jaguar - 2.jpg

Keyfob Jaguar - 3.jpg

Anyone else had the same problem?

Can add this to the error list. I think I had already more problems with the F-Pace than all my other cars together over 40 years. Had to replace one other key fob but that was a 6 years old Peugeot with over 200.000 kms on the counter.

Hi,
Looks like it's melting or something. Where do you normally place your keys something hot near the keys or maybe keyfob itself getting warm to an extent that it looks deformed like this? Better get the dealer sort it out if it's still under warranty.
Thanks.

No, that's a first, but looks heat related ?

I always keep the keys in my pocket. Never put them in the sun because otherwise the metal part gets too hot.
It is not really deformed. Looks as if there was not enough glue at the edges.
