I so want to do this, but can't do the conversion myself, as the D in DIY means disaster for me, Sad
Does anyone know somewhere/one in south central region that would do the conversion if I supplied the parts from Elliot and they charged me for the labour. thanks Thumb

Hi Phil,

If you are ever near Camberley Surrey, I'll happily do the swap for you. (Same goes for anyone else on here, happy to help out any fellow 911uk members)

It's not a hard DIY, just fiddly. That said I've done it may times and have it down to a fine art now.

Alternatively let me know if you are at any meets in the South East soon, If so I'll see you there and can bring my tools.

Thumb

Great thanks for the offer Elliot, we have the second 911uk south central meet in Alresford on the 5th August 19.30, don't know if you are up for that meet ,I know Nigel99 comes down from Surrey for it. if so I would have 2x two button ones , otherwise I will look to try and meet up with you in the not too distant future.

details of the meet in the link

thanks again for the offer mate Grin Grin Thumb

Just done mine- I waited until I got my new key before attacking the old one, though in hindsight, it really is a dead simple job & I could have done it earlier.
tools required- kitchen table, long nose pliers, small screwdriver, and regular pliers & a blob of superglue. I couldn't get mine to work initially, but a message to Elliot & he quickly pointed me in the right direction, analysing where he though my issue was. TOP BLOKE!
the key looks identical to my newly supplied Porsche version

Hi Elliot,

I am interested in updating one of my keys on my new purchase (collected it today! Very Happy ). Please let me know the details for a 2 button key.

Many thanks,

Thanks Elliot. The key fobs came yesterday and I ser to with a scalpel, some micro screwdrivers and an old chopping board. The first fob took about 45 minutes, the second about 15 once I knew what I was doing. Taking the transponder out is the hardest part and the glue, surrounding plastic and transponder itself are all the same colour. This is a great little mod and the new fob is a huge improvement. Thanks again. Graham
