Key fob micro switch

Does anyone have a source for the remote micro switch buttons? I looked on mouser but only saw reels of 2700! I need 3.
It's for a 2004 Boxster

You can find them on eBay. I did switch replacement on one of my key fobs. Very easy if you have half decent soldering skills.

Here's the URL to where I bought mine.

Thanks, but they don't ship to Canada apparently.

I will be happy to help you out. How many switches do you need? I'll charge you at cost to me, order them and then send them to you by mail.

You can PM me if you want to take me up on it.

thats the one...even though they describe it as a thru-hole, check the datasheet, its correct. buy a couple extra in case you drop one and cant find it...(like i did)

Also worth noting from the RennTech DIY article:

I used the 400 gf switch for my failed unlock button, but comparing the operating force to the stock switches I think 300 gf would be closer to correct.

Call them

I saw the same thing (vendor was only selling in large quantity). I called them and the minimum was like 6 switches. I used two and rest of the quantity away.
