    Refurbishement Key Fob/Key SL280 R129

    As far as I can ascertain build date was approx Feb 1994. It was registered in UK 22 04 1994. Not sure how to tel if I have an IR receiver on mirror, I did point fob at the mirror after reading some other information but no joy. The boot does have a receiver, same as the doors, once again no joy.
