Hi 

A month into ownership and so far so good. I have a slight creaking noise by the driver side roof grab handle that is annoying so need to get that booked in so that it could be cured! I have also got a key fob Battery warning message come up for the first time. Can somone direct me to where I need to get this Battery from? 

Many thanks

Battery replacement is simple. When I first got my 300h I started keeping the key in a Faraday pouch because of concern about relay theft. I then discovered that If the lock button is held down and the unlock button is pressed twice quickly the LED indicator would blink and deactivate the key eliminating the need for the pouch. Pressing any key reactivates the fob. As well as enhancing security this measure may prolong the life of the fob Battery?

Problem is that it doesn't work on every model.
