Once inserted then what? Should i feel something spring loose? Do i need to feel for something else? The prongs can be fully inserted beyond the curvature of the U so seem useless to me although all picture for Renault removal keys are depicted to look like this.

May I have any further advice on how these things should be used please?

Many thanks

Hi Natalie,

You wont feel anything spring looose when inserting the keys. When youve put them in as far as they can go, press them both in and push slightly down on them and pull the stereo towards you. If that doesnt work push them up and pull the stereo towards you.

They can be a bit of a bugger to get out.
