This happened to me about 20 years ago with an old CitroŽn that I had.
I used to put about a half dozen keys on the ring, plus a few metal bits.
It cost me rather a lot to get a new one, not to mention the cost of the tow truck, as the garage wouldn't or couldn't fix it in the Hotel car park where I'd broken down.
The newer switches that cars have these days seem a bit more robust, but I aint going this road again. My brother who works in the motor trade telling me "I told you so" was enough...
