The ford one (2012 focus experience) was hard to remove from the fob and it had no real "head" on the end to give you leverage to turn it. You also had to make sure you didn't lose the plastic cover. 3 pieces, fob, key, coverHow so?
That is waaay complicated plus you still have to put the door skin and interior panel somewhere. I think they just went with the separate tube doors as an option, at least that's the only one I've seen.I REALLY hope they go with "convertible style" doors like what they are showing in this article: http://www.trucktrend.com/news/2021-bronco-feb20-news
Unless it has already been confirmed that this isn't happening initially but I missed it?
What?For those talking about FOBs...
On my Platinum Edge I had, I bought a switchblade key FOB (the key flipped out & still had all FOB options/buttons) on eBay, transplanted the key & programed in 5min & dispensed with the lame factory straight FOB/key.
I'd be surprised if this wouldn't be possible with whatever Bronco gets for keys. Making a cool smaller profile key that can stow the actual "key" with a button flip.
This is an example of the switchblade fob
This was the lame oem fob
Oh, Ford's newest key is just 2 pieces that separate, as pictured above.The ford one (2012 focus experience) was hard to remove from the fob and it had no real "head" on the end to give you leverage to turn it. You also had to make sure you didn't lose the plastic cover. 3 pieces, fob, key, cover
The bmw one is released by pressing a big button and it had enough of a head that it would be easy to turn. 2 pieces, fob and key
Totally minor issues, nothing to make or break a deal. And I've never had to use either, so really the issue is more of a "which is easier to fidget with if my phone is out of battery and I'm bored"
