Customer Question

My son put the regular key in the fob slot of my FX35, how can I remove it?

JA: What year is your FX35?
Customer: 2014
JA: Are you fixing your FX35 yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Tried pulling it out manually. I was wondering if there is a button or something to release it?

Hello my name is ***** ***** thank you for your question.

Give me a min to type out how I remove the mechanical key out of the fob slot.. 1 mins please

Expert:  Jay replied 11 months ago.

What I normally do is get a pair of needle nose pliers to grab the key. Then a long skinny screw driver to press the spring loaded back door. So I will use the screw driver to press the spring door in and then I may apply on an off pressure while I pull the key with the needle nose pliers. Some times it requires a nice little tug, then the key will come out.

Give that a try and let me know how you make out..
