I like Shoe Goo for stuff like that since (a) it bonds to rubber and (b) it is flexible instead of brittle.

That being said, I have used the built-in option on the alarm so I don't have to use the fob anymore. I just lock/unlock with the mechanical key. I leave the fob in the car just in case something resets and I need it, but that's not happened yet.

Search Amazon for "lotus key fob" and you can get the entire fob for less than $10. Ebay has them too and you can find just the broken part. I think I have 3 replacements if you cannot find them.

I fixed mine earlier this year and its a direct replacement. I wish all things were this easy to fix. Got mine off of ebay.

I bought one with a ring instead of the rubber dongy. No more breaky breaky.

You can also get just the dongy if your into that kind of thing.

I broke two of the rubber pieces and went with this solution and it really classed up the keys. I think the design is supposed to be reminiscent of the spoke on the sport pack wheels. Looks great, feels great and I never have to worry about replacing it again.

One of mine had a fishing swivel in place of the rubber bit when I bought the car. Works fine.
