  1. I can't believe MB made their Smart fortwo key fobs with a weak thin layer of ABS plastic to attach the key ring. Another case of designed obsolescence!!! I was about to order online for a replacement case and thought to myself "Hey I won't get this $5.00 ebay Chinese replacement case for a least a couple of weeks!" So I decided to repair the original. Well just to let you know, this mod will outlast any Smart key fob on the market. I used 1/16 drill bit, flattened one side of the case to allow a good surface to drive the bit in and used wire from my old lawnmower throttle cable. The wire is pliable enough to bend yet stiff enough to hold its shape in the case. I hope you enjoy the post!
