The casing is not usually available separately, but if you contact one of the product stockists (such as Directed Electronics) they may be able to provide you with contact details for the manufacturer. But the fault is due to a poorly engineered design so it's only a question of when it next happens. This time you've been lucky not to lose the remotes, next time you might not be so lucky.

The only remaining options are to either buy new remotes (expensive and has the same fault waiting to happen, plus you have to get them programmed to the alarm) or to fabricate a repair by drilling holes into the outer casing and then using strong wire (a section cut from a wire coathanger?) anchored with epoxy resin to fabricate a new and far superior key loop.

Good luck.

How do I program my key fob to a 94 Olds 98 regency?

Assuming it's a standard GM half moon style key fob, you can get replacements soon many sources including dealerships, locksmiths, and ebay.

Programming depends on whether you already have a working key?

If you don't, you will have to go to a dealer or find a locksmith who has the right equipment (I suspect not many do).

THis works for Holden Commodores of that era, most GM products should be similar:
If you have a working key, it's relatively straight forward, as the car can program new keys.
1 remove screws holding key blades into the remote heads of both keys.
2 remote the key blade from the *new* key and put aside.
3 insert old (working) key into ignition and start the car.
4 with car running, carefully slide the remote head off the key in the ignition barrel. Car should stay running.
5 carefully slide new remote head onto the old key blade sitting in ignition. Make sure the metal contact inside the key blade insert makes contact with the key blade. Make certain the small contact pin on the facing edge of the remote makes contact with the metal slide ring on the outside of the ignition barrel - these two contacts form a circuit.
6 The key fob should program almost immediately, but leave the fob in position for 30 secs to a minute to ensure its done.
7 turn car off and reassemble keys.
8 test all functions of new key - remote entry and engine start.

(get key blank cut by a locksmith before commencing the above!)

Will my 2002 Jaguar(x-type) key work once it dries out from being washed in the laundry (accidently).

On the opposite side of the buttons or back side there is a small slot in the middle for a slotted screwdriver to be inserted and twisting it to either side will help to pry it open as this key is a two part body.
you can also carefully insert a blade from a small knife to help separate the two halfs.

Then, once separated, the half with the buttons is further a two part clam shells. So yo need to carefully use a slotted screwdriver or the blade. Just do not apply pressure towards your hand or body. Wiggle it to pry it open as it is pressured locked. Once you create a gap then work your way around it until it snaps apart. 8747d174-878b-446b-bcb6-e059f20bda7f.jpg

Once it is opened you expose the circuit board which is secured by a single small phillips head screw. Remove it and separate the board to expose the battery which is a 2032 3 volt round battery.
positive is down towards the shell.
Reverse the procedure to assemble and apply pressure with your fingers to snap the shells back. Cheers! You done it.

Disassembling the remote control of samsung le-26r73bd/xeu, some of the buttons seem not to be working anymore, so I need the manual to where the pins, which are holding it together are, so I won't brake...

Start at the fat end of the remote by inserting a thin flat screw driver between the grey and black edges of plastic. As you move down you'll feel the driver enage into a gap. At this point lever up the black plastic. Continue around the fat end of the remote releasing it from the catches, work yourself around until you reach the top end prying apart the catches of the remote. Now you can remove the two sections apart. <br /><br />To remove the keypad you'll need to pry another catch that holds the keypad down at the top near the IR diodes. TAKECARE not to damage/break the catch, it was a very thin piece of plastic in my remote and broke off when I tried to replace the key pad. In my case I used some tape to hold down the keypad inside the remote housing. Clean the PCB where is makes contact with the silicon keys and replace. Now replace the two sections of the remote alighning the catches which now snap together.

To replace the battery:
1. Twist a thin coin between the two
halves of the remote entry
transmitter near the key ring. DO
2. Remove the old battery.
3. Insert the new battery. Refer to
the diagram inside the remote entry
transmitter for the correct orientation of the battery.
4. Snap the two halves back together.
Note: Replacement of the battery will not cause the remote transmitter
to become deprogrammed from your vehicle. The remote transmitter
should operate normally after battery replacement. claims they have factory repair manuals, they have nothing of the sort, this is not to say some experts may have manuals, we do, but we work from home and in most cases have a small library.
