DIY w/20 pics on how to replace rubber key pads in old style remote key

I just finished a DIY (on the e38 Bimmerforum.com) on how to replace the rubber key pads in the old style keys.

If anyone is interested in how it's done...just click this link: http://forums.bimmerforums.com/forum....php?t=1548798

I replaced the one on the right (in image below) with the one on the left (in image below). I purchased from some seller in China...it took about 2 weeks to get here and only cost approx $6:



Went from this...


...to this...(needs a few more adjustment...but lunch break was over & had to go back to work)
