I fix Volvo switchblade keys. Also referred to as a volvo flip key. When the broken key will not extend or retract, I replace the inner workings. Repair parts are unavailable through Volvo and a replacement key is very expensive. Key replacement and reprogramming of the car unit is expensive. The "chip", embedded within, is matched to your car. A replacement or used key with a different "chip", won't work. It won't start your car! The key (chip) itself can't be "reprogrammed"! I can save you the hundreds of dollars that the dealer route would cost. Your key will be restored to "better than" original factory operation, with your original "chip" within, at a small fraction of the cost. Little ring keep coming detached? Can also update to brand new case with molded plastic key ring adapter! Same day service with priority mail. I include a "tip sheet" explains how they break and how to prevent future problems. Have done hundreds over the past 3 years and had no repeat failures

Hi Tony

I need one of my keys fixing but I'm based in the UK. Can you send me a replacement part and instructions on how to renovate the original key?

thanks

The repair requires parts which are unavailable through Volvo or the French manufacturer. It also takes great care and specialty tools, one of which was specially fabricated, as to not damage the chip.

I have been restoring Volvo switchblade keys for over three years and have had no failures. The Volvo flip key has been problematic. The key restoration service eliminates the need for the expense of replacement, reprogramming and other serious issues especially regarding the fact that your other keys transponders will still be "recognized" and can still be used!!

I have just completed the 500th Volvo flip key restoration. I have saved many happy people a lot of money by offering a great alternative to key replacement and the vehicle re-programming hassles that go along with it. Also restore operation of many faulty or water damaged remote entry system remote controls.
