Key repairs

Hi guys,

I bought a Fiat Punto Evo a few weeks back and the key that came with it is a bit worn. I'm not prepared to pay 80 to have it fixed.

I've replaced the cover and the buttons, but my current problem is the latching mechanism is worn down. I took the key apart and noticed that the two indentations that keep it latched in place are worn down.

Has anyone had an luck swapping these out, or should I see if a locksmith can just cut a new one?

Thanks!

Get a replacement key cut can get them for about 15 on eBay and just swap over the circuit board from your current one 😊

I didn't think about that, is it really that simple?

Re: Key repairs

Nice, I've got one of those spare from the swaps I made so I'll see about getting it cut over the weekend. Thanks for your help!
