Recently key pad of my car key got some cracks and broke, searched key cover on Amazon and ordered this.

Cover replacement was easy and took me around 30-45min.
Below are some DIY steps for changing cover.

I hope this is helpful.

Of Course it is very-very helpful. It will help all XUV owners when in need.

If you don't mind please show us your XUV too (with new pics). Everyone will appreciate it.
