Hi! My flip key is stuck and i don't know what to do

Hi all,

I'm new here because I couldn't find this answer anywhere i looked online.

I have a 2014 Kia Sorento and BOTH of the key fob flip keys are sticking, one worse than the other where it almost doesn't come out at all. Does anyone know a fix to this or a way to open them up to clean them? they're probably just dirty (i got the car used) so the mechanism needs to be cleaned out.

Any help would be greatly appreciated,

Thanks!

Have you tried a few drops of WD-40 on the pivot?

Been there, fixed that

I found that there is a little pin close to the end where the key pivots. This pin is visible when the key is open. My pin had moved out causing it to catch. Finding something to drive that pin back to a neutral position - not sticking out either side - did the trick
