Key Fob Lock Broke

Hello,

My key will no longer lock into my fob. I believe part of the lock mechanism broke off. Is it possible to replace only this part of the key without buying a replacement key?

I took a pictures of my key and my friends functioning key to compare.

Thanks!

Get a new fob from the dealer. Have the dealer sync it with the car.

This.

Many dealers will gladly help a customer to keep the good will out if you bought your car from them.

Especially if you broke it b/c you needed to use the emergency key (that would mean s/t else failed, right?).

And I'm loving the combo of beer-opener and key-finder on your fob. Gotta appreciate a heavy drinker who can plan ahead for the closing-time key hunt .

Unfortunately I got the car via lease transfer and I just use the closest dealership for service.

Might as well just go in and see if they can do anything but I literally don't spend any money with them since all of the service fees are covered in lease lol.

If you're still under warranty, I'd think it should be covered.
