Replacing the Body of the Car Flip Key

Numerous factors may cause the necessity to replace vehicle key body, such as simple mechanical damages (chipped or cracked key grip), aesthetic problems (scuffed body, squashed buttons), and more serious failures (broken attachment node in the flip key, the main button sticks or falls out)

Another reason for a car key body replacement is higher functionality. For instance, some customers want to replace a conventional key with a transponder for the one that has extra buttons on the case (or flip-key). Car owners should acknowledge that the service is available only in case the transponder (chip, or chipboard) works correctly, without any problems.

The replacement of the car key body is performed by our experts, right at the place, within a short while after you contact them. Unlike the fixing of an automatic key (with a chip), the specialists always use the electronics and frequently even a string of the provided key. It means that the electronic chip (transponder) or chipboard is simply placed to the new case without any changes (re-flash, binding, etc.)

It often happens, that the customers apply to the Center for the manufacture of a new car key with a replaced body, and get several options to choose from. Our key body models can differ in design and functionality, quality, and price.

These days, a lot of auto enthusiasts try to purchase a key body online and replace it on their own. We want to warn you that two different keys may look the same, but be completely different inside, with varying seats for chips of numerous models and manufacturers, places for power components, indicators, etc. Besides, keep in mind that some companies glue chips to the body of the key, in order to avoid unwanted vibration inside the chip case. If you damage the chip during disassembly, the simple replacement of the case can turn into a full-fledged production of a new vehicle key.

It is ultimately dangerous if you have only one set of car keys. We will do our best to help you anyway, but it will cost more money, effort, and nerves. Besides, it is necessary to mention that the financial benefit of the autonomous key body replacement is dubious and can reach only a few dozen hryvnias.
