After 3 years and 7 months my FOB battery starting dying today. I too, thought the plastic bag tip was a great idea. But did I use one? ... Nah, I won't lose any parts. Well somewhere in the dining room carpet is that little spring :stupid:Got this from another contributor on this site and thought it was a pretty good idea. Place the FOB in a plastic bag while working on it so any parts trying to escape are confined to a easier search area....
I decided not to replace the tab and since I always use a FOB cover it's not a big deal.
