    I sure do- as long as they are the clamshell style, two button keys. Most keys can be repaired for under $50 USD excluding shipping to overseas, but even with the shipping it is still a bargain compared to the cost of a new key. If you are still interested I will send you a rough price list and what I can do and a "Patient Intake Form" for the "MINI Key Hospital". Sending me a picture or two of what shape your key is in will help me estimate what it will take to fix it. My e-mail is "valvashon (at) earthlink (dot) net. Thanks for inquiring! Dr. Bruce
