Information

The Purpose of this guide is to allow you to use a MG Rover 2 button fob case to replace your worn  3 button fob case. The third button actuator is present but hidden. With a little bit of cutting you can use your old 3 button PCB board in the 2 Button Case.

As the 3 Button Fob cases are in short supply.

Stripping the case down (look at our other guide) you can see the three separate pieces that make up the whole Fob. You can see the third button post now visible.

Looking close at the inside you can see that there are three buttons visible - the lower one (one to cut) is longer than the others as it has not been cut to size. Carefully check the size of the other buttons  before you cut.  Better to cut it too long (can remove some) rather than too short!

Utilising nail clippers  or similar you can remove a small section at a time, till you get to the length you require.

Remember you cannot put it back so do NOT remove too much.

When done carefully replace the pcb board and check operation
Note: We will not exchange fobs if the button has been cut too SHORT!
 
Take care when reducing the third button size.
