My elder brother came to my house and handed over to me his HYUNDAI I20 CAR REMOTE KEY which is damaged from key side rubber pad and asked me if I can arrange to get a new one.

On visual observation I saw the rubber pad was badly torn.

So I have decided to just give a hand and try if something can be done without buying a new one.

So I kept the key with me and started my work next day as follows.

Now the question is from where to find the rubber pad? An idea came to use rubber pad from tire tube.  You can also use tire tube for making washer for reducing vibration noise in computer with screw on HDD and cabinet FAN). Next I have removed the inner Silver clip with the help of knife for marking on Rubber for cutting.

Now is the time to prepare the small cylinder (piston) where it can used to push the micro switch button. For this I have arranged two different size of Ball pen riffle, a non tearable visiting card, synthetic Rubber glue. With help of this material I made this thing.

First I have checked with the help of Gel pen refill that work or not. Here I found that I can easily push the micro switch with help of this refill.

Next step I have made a small piston with the help of ball pen refill and cutter. And stick this piston on piece of non tearable visiting card which I have cut to the size which covers the hole of micro switch block.

After that I have tried to test it to check if it was working smoothly or not. So by putting it on the unit I have checked and found this unit was working smoothly.

Now with the help of Synthetic rubber glue I have applied the glue on edge of Silver Clip and the groove from which we have removed the clip. Now I have attached the clip in the body and by applying glue on rubber pad I have done the finishing work.

    You had a lot of work in fixing the Remote Key Yogesh.
    I understand that the switches still were okay since you fixed the rubber knobs on top. Such a repair is new to me.
    I only repaired remote controls with silver glue or with thin aluminium foil when the switches failed working. Or I replaced the originally used membrane switches by microswitches. I also made the plastic of some Remote Controls as new again by using the thin needles that used to be in new Shirts. By kind of Welding the needles into the plastic with my solder station. So it even helped repairing the springy plastic parts. (Kind of like Iron in Concrete).
