    Default 307 Key Fob - disassembly

    Hi all,
    My key fob for the 307 has decided that the position to lock the key away is now an approximate 30 degree angle from the housing. I had a problem a month or two ago where the key locked itself in the housing and it took a while to get it back out again, only releasing itself after I dropped my keys on to the ground.
    Anyway, how to I disassemble the key fob so I can fix it up again so it all locks back how it should?
    Cheers,
    Sam.

    Argh! They're bloody expensive to replace if I remember correctly... probably the kind of thing best left to the peugeot mechanics so if they stuff if up, you'll get a free new one...

    Have you tried sourcing a replacement key fob on ebay? I just bought one for my 206 as it recently died. Only $6, delivery included.

    Doesn't the 307 one have some RF transmitter for security reasons?

    Cost us $300 to get an extra one when we bought the car.

    There is nothing wrong with the operation of the fob at all. It's just that the key won't lock away properly anymore.

    Sam,

    I have had my 307 Key Fob apart once to replace the battery. It is quite easy, just carefully and slowly prise it open at the base, adjacent to where the key ring goes through the hole. In the centre, there should be a groove to fit a screw driver.
    I am a bit pedantic and replace the small battery every two years

    Cheers,

    Thanks Rob. I did have a crack at it, but didn't put much force in to it through fear of breaking something. Is there anything I should look out for when opening it up? Nothing will shoot out and get lost somewhere, e.g. a spring?

    Also, what size screwdriver did you use? A small one or a larger one that fits in the groove?

    Sam,

    I used a large blade screwdriver. Just lie the key fob on a table or bench, with the Peugeot Lion facing up (from memory). Slowly and gently prise the two halves apart. I was apprehensive about opening up my key fob to replace the battery, however nothing shot out when I prised it open.
    When you have sorted out the retracting key mechanism, it is a very simple matter of snapping the two halves back together.

    Cheers,
