How to Take Apart a Nissan Key Fob

Save

Many Nissan vehicles offer enabled keyless entry systems that allow owners to lock or unlock the doors of their vehicle with a small, electronic key fob. When the battery in the fob fails, or the fob otherwise malfunctions, you'll need to take apart the fob before you can begin troubleshooting it. Taking apart a Nissan key fob can be done in seconds and requires no special tools or experience.

Things You'll Need

  • Plastic guitar pick or quarter
  • Stand the Nissan key fob on its side and locate the seam where the two halves of the fob meet.

  • Insert a flat tool, such as a plastic guitar pick or quarter, into the seam on the side of the key fob.

  • Rock the tool back and forth to pry open the Nissan fob. After a bit of effort, the two halves will separate completely.

Tips & Warnings

  • Perform some routine maintenance on your Nissan key fob while you have it disassembled. Replace the battery, if necessary, and clean the battery contacts with a cotton swab that has been dipped in white vinegar to remove any corrosion.
  • Nissan key fobs models can vary slightly. Contact a Nissan dealership or service center for model-specific key fob disassembly instructions.
