D3 Replacement Key Case/Rubber - which seller??

Guys,

I'd appreciate a little help. Just borrowed my wife's car to see that the key has worn through. So I went to swap the key out for the spare, which also has a hole worn through ('I swapped them ages ago because the other was worn out' she said - of course never mentioned it to me Evil or Very Mad )

Can anyone anyone recommend a seller of the rubber key cases so I can transfer the gubbins.

Do I also change the batteries at the same time?

Apologies if there's a sticky on this but delighted if someone has time to point me at it. Flying off for work so wanted to order the parts to do the project when they arrive.

Thanks in advance and grateful for advice.

It's not easy to get the old one apart I used a Dremel (carefully)

Have you tried RRUK (forum goer)? He replaced both my keys and updated them to the later style:

Edited:

He does 5 button replacement: http://www.disco4.com/forum/topic150038.html?highlight=key+fob

and 3 button: http://www.disco4.com/forum/topic150037.html?highlight=key+fob

The batteries recharge when in the car so no need to routinely replace batteries

RRUK did the replacement of my D3 key fob and also fitted a new battery (keys are ~ 12 years old). The battery isn’t meant to be changed - unlike on D4 keys - so changing it involves soldering.

There is a thread/ad on his key replacement service on the Parts for sale forum with a bunch of very satisfied customers.

If you want to DIY to should be able to get the empty fob yourself from AliExpress (I did check it out), Advanced Factors sold them and, I think, so did Rimmer Bros. Instructions at https://disco3.co.uk/gallery/albums/userpi...attery.pdf

I got a couple of replacement shells when i got my D3 but the bloody key doesnt stay locked in, it opens up in your pocket digging into your pants Sad .
So be wary of cheap ebay shells.
