Does anyone here know where I can get a replacement key fob(s) LR Dealers can’t get it, national back order. I’m on the waiting list for 3 months already.

This place sells OEM key for $238.

Perhaps give them a call to see if it works?

If it’s just the fob we are talking about then yes the eBay you can program for your car but if you want the fob and the physical key then only Land Rover, you give them your vin and it will be programmed from them and you’ll have the key cut by them as well

The eBay key comes with a blank key. Can we just have a locksmith cut the key?

The $17.00 fob from eBay is aftermarket, anybody have experience using aftermarket key fob? It is a lot cheaper than the Oem fob for $240.00
My understanding is that the 'gap tool' costs $500 --- you'll need that for the $17 eBay key. Unless you can use someone's gap tool, the $238 option is the cheapest.

Good plan. Let us how it goes. One of my keys was stolen some time ago. I'm debating whether to get another one. I'd be interested in hearing about your experience.

When ordering key fob from eBay, make sure the FCC ID matches with your original key.

If you have the Gap tool it can be programmed from a new cut key.
If you’re looking to just replace the shell of the key because the buttons are torn. You can buy any shell on eBay or key as long as it looks original. Open your old key and remove the spring and board along with the key. Inserting these into the new part. Your vehicle will still recognize it. I’ve done this so I know it works. Just be sure the battery is good to go. Otherwise you’ll Definitely need a new key unless you want to buy a battery and are good at soldering.

Turbostang, I bought a key FOB from Ebay at around $14 bucks. Opened up the old, useless key fob and removed the guts and key. Installed them in the new shell with a new battery and viola, works great. Just make sure, like someone said before, that the new shell matches the vehicle you have. There are multiple videos on youtube on how to open up the old shell. GL

I found a place in England that restores old key fobs. I have not used him but found him through a combination of this blog and internet research. You can contact him at Daniel Dean <[email protected]>. No money up front.
