I havebeen asked to look at this for you.
Assumingthat you bought the car in June this year you have a course of action.
Thecar (and the accessories) must be of satisfactory quality under the Sale ofGoods act.
Liabilityfor this rests with the dealer and not the manufacturer.
If thedealer will not replace the fob, then tell him that you will get one doneelsewhere and issue small claims court proceedings against the dealer forwhatever it costs you and which you can do quite easily here www.moneyclaim.gov.uk
andlet the court decide whether the dealer is to blame or not and whether he isliable to replace this for you.
To befrank, based upon the fact that you have given me, I think he would be an idiotto not simply replace the key fob assuming of course that you did not damageit.
Does that answer the question? Can I help further?Can I answer any specific points?
