    Hi there, I wasn't sure which category this fell into so I've put it here! This may seem like a stupid question, but I recently changed the rubber buttons on my key fob. During this simple operation what I now know to be the transponder, fell out! Try as I might I cannot find anywhere in the key fob for it to go and still close up the fob!!! How stupid do I feel???? I need to sort this quickly so that I can use the car! Any help would be appreciated.
    Also, where can I get the small plastic plate that sits under the buttons with the 3 little "domes" on that my new rubber buttons press?

    Thanks in anticipation
    Dave

    On the older type of key the transponder fits in the left front near the blade. (only goes in one way)

    Thanks Mike, I'm not sure where you mean? I cannot find anywhere that it seems to fit. Once the printed circuit is in place there is no room for anything! Is mine the old key type (1999 /2000 UK model 520i)
    Thanks
