New rattle and new alarm fob.

Noticed a new rattle on the car today, a vibrating noise coming from behind me. Not sure if its coming from behind the seat or the engine bay. Dont think its anything serious, sounds like something rattling - could be the undertray or maybe a screw or something. Really bloody annoying, gonna take a look on Tue/Wed to see what it is.

More news - the rubber on the alarm fob broke over Christmas so at the moment I'm carrying it around seperate to the keys. Its my only one and will only be a matter of time before I lose it. Did some digging online and if I lose it then I need a whole new alarm system installed! You need a working remote to program a replacement. Managed to find an online store that sells replacement remotes, decided to go for the top-of-the-range key remote, where the key fits into the remote. Should save some keyring space. Here's a pic...

Only problem is - its £50! On thinking about it I thought it's a wise investment. I could have bought a replacement case for my existing remote for £10 but I'd be in the shit if I lost it and would have to fork out a few hundred quid for a new alarm system. After much Internet searching I couldn't find it any cheaper, I couldnt even find anyone else who sold them, not even on eBay. Props to Abacus car alarms for being really helpful and responding to emails within 10 minutes. I expect nothing less for £50 ";-)"

It's due to be posted tomorrow so I should get it before the end of the week, I'll post another entry with how much of a pain it's gonna be to get programmed.
