    My 1998 S70 keyless remote (part 9166200) has a cracked case. The remote
    works fine, but I am afraid that moisture or dirt could more easily damage
    the delicate electronics. The local Volvo dealership can sell me a new
    remote ($112, if I recall correctly), but tells me that no replacement case
    is available. Volvo's North American headquarters forwarded my inquiry to
    someone, but three or four weeks have passed without response. Does anyone
    here have an email address for the manufacturer in Sweden?

    Thank you!

    I don't know the address, but here's a suggestion. Have you
    considered picking up a remote from eBay? I've bought remotes
    from my cars from eBay -- the car is easy to program to accept
    the new remote. And I've never paid more than $20 for a remote.

    Here are a few that will work with your car:

    Why not fix the crack with some glue?
    I really don't think there are replacement cases..

  4. I don't know the address, but here's a suggestion. Have you
    Another suggestion: get the remote from ebay, and transfer your circuit
    board to the new case. No programming required.

    Very true. However, many Volvo dealers will do it for free as a
    courtesy as it takes just two minutes and requires a VST. With Volvo
    850s, 960s, and 940s - programming the remote doesn't require a VST.

    Not a bad suggestion, I just bought one for my S80, it will cost 30.00
    US including shipping, mine should be here any day now.

    Bought on Ebay, there's several for sale at any givin time.
