Key fob rubber lining detached,... (?)

Hello Team:

My RR is about 1,3 years old and I got the rubber lining of key fob detached,...

Pretty annoying and potentially some water/moisture can get in,...

Anybody has similar problem ? Warranty ?

There's a Special Service Message (SSM 51797 - Smart Key Cover Detaching From Casing) on Topix. I don't have a subscription but sounds pretty much related to what you are experiencing.

As an aside, on my first Evoque which I had for 18 months I also towards the end noticed the rubber lining loosening around the edges.

Current: SD4 Dynamic Auto, 5 Door, Orkney Grey with Black Contrast Pano roof and 20" Shadow Chrome wheels. Pursuit interior.
Hand over was 8 years ago

Gone: Si4 Prestige Auto Coupe, Orkney Grey with Panoramic Roof, Element interior, Shadow Chrome 20" wheels with most of the bits & pieces loaded.
Hand over was 10 years ago

Speak to your dealer

I asked about the problem and when I came to collect my car from a service thy had replaced it under warranty.

Amazing service, very happy, never had this with other brands

One of the happy owners, ordered June 2011, delivered Wednesday 8th February 2012, now 97000 miles. Scorpions lasted 78'000 miles.

I've also had a key changed under warranty because the rubber layer over the buttons was peeling.
No problems - they ordered a new key and programmed it into the car when I visited the garage.

Be aware that they need all the keys available when they do the programming for the new key.

I had this issue, and put it to my dealer also...they too happily replaced it for a new one under warranty. You should do the same miha.m.

Only had my one key as I didn't believe they would change it.

Was amazed, all functions were as normal immediately afterwards. Very Happy
