M Sport Key Case Fix

Ok so i see some people complaining about the BMW M Sport Key Case

im talking about this one



as like many of you the stupid screw broke and it was useless. so i looked for a permanent fix.

i bought the following and have been using it for a few months and no issues what so ever

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/THREADED-S...ELzgpZGerT0i7Q

1 of these. M4 / 22mm / Qty 1


and i bought these http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/M3-M4-M5-M...sQpg75rEiKaIFw

m4 / 10mm / pack of 5



#

not sure if these helps anyone else.

my key isa genuine case.... a genuine copy

if you want a bit of blue like the original setup

you can get a blue washer

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/M4-M5-M6-M...WsiOxq7xAwpG9A

you then need a tapered screw

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/M3-M4-M5-M...1-qBNMEWUFpLkQ

or drill out the countersunk washer with a 4mm drill bit and purchase a m4 /10mm blue tapered screw for OEM look

bit of an update

ordered 10mm m4 washers as I felt the tube could pass through the actual case so wanted to sandwich the material. as per picture

also whilst at it bought a m4 blue washer and m4 bolt

i think my 22mm threaded sleeve is to long so ordered an 18mm to try

will let you know

That's nice.



Do you not have your car key attached to your other keys? I see these key covers and assume that a lot of people keep their car key separate from all their other keys is this right?

I would find that very odd, although I do like the key covers and maybe it's something I need to try.

I reckon, without my car key attached to all of my other keys, I'd lose it.

i dont becuase back in the day when you use to hang keys from the ignition it use to put a load on the barrel

you could easily put a ring in there as there is plenty of room as you can see.

Can't believe another key case thread has come up, and it's stayed sensible despite it being dangerous times on this her forum (nearly an hour of my time lost to that damn thread)

Good repair work btw OP, looks as good as new, although I'm still wondering how it would work with the rest of the keys attached (and trolley token, kids photo key ring, club card etc etc)

My 'proper car' key case came with a metal bolt so it's been fine.

And yes, my car let has always been separate to my house keys!

You can just see it here - I keep dropping it so the case has done its job!

I ordered a few metal bolts off eBay before I realised the case came with a metal one!

sorry i miss understood i thought you were saying the OEM key has an adaptor bolt that allows you to join it to the rest of your key set.

im guessing this isnt the case. car key and house keys have to be kept seperate
