Key Issue

Is there a replacement for the key cover? The button for my unlock on my key fell apart. The board is still good just the rubber piece fell apart. Seems bad design since it only lasted two years. I hate to have to buy a new key just because the cover piece fell apart.

Mine was replaced under my 36 month 3 year warranty by GM. It did the same thing you are talking about.

I was just about to create a new thread on this.

My FOB is just short of 3 years old now and here is what is happening to it:

Before people comment, this happend by just keeping the FOB on my keychain with a few other keys. It seems like the rubber is too soft the the cover get's chewed up when rubbing on other keys.

I will be going to the dealership today to hopefully get this replaced under warranty.

Mine crumbled this morning. I usually keep it in my pocket with no other keys on the ring or in the pocket. Going to call the dealership today, though I am outside my warrenty. This should be fun....
