|Soultempter||lol I just started making a rough tutorial on taking apart the key fob and transferring old parts to new one. Might still be useful so ill finish it if I can get the transponder out without destroying it. Only other thing I couldn't figure out was how to remove the emblem on the back of the fob without destroying it. I know there is a little hole on the inside, but its damn near microscopic. lol|

|MasonRobert||Not necessarily because i got flip key from the dealer and it cost double the cost charged by the locksmith.|

|Kippo||So yes you could do it with the parts fob. Swap all internals and have the key cut to your old key.|

My original flip key fob was cracked. I tried a few different ways to get the transponder out. I ended up just sanding it out.
If you buy the 29 dollar one it comes with a transponder. With out modifying your key I dont see away to make it work on the flip fob. I have seen a video on YouTube where a guy modified his key to work with the flip key fob. I'll try to find it. I didnt watch the whole video so I do not know how successful he was.

|Kippo||I moved all my internals and cut blade to the new case that was 12.00.|

|smwalker||Could have even saved $20 by moving your old key blade over to the new case. There is just a pin holding it in. BUt a new cut blade is shinier!|

It is stupid simple...I was really surprised.

Key fob with transmitter and transponder. My bad it was right at 30.00 for this.

When I bought my gt the guy only had one switch blade key or what ever you call it. The spring was broke and the case was cracked.
I called the dealership and they wanted right at 130 just for the fob and another 100 to program it.
I found a case kit on ebay for 12.00 and a complete fob with transmitter, transponder, and key blank for 25.00.
Got a local locksmith to cut the blank for 20.00 and found instructions for programming the key online. I really can't believe the stealership wanted 100.00 to program the key.
They did not come with the pontiac logo 3d stickers. I could not find any online so I bought some Holden racing ones to go back on the key fobs.
So for less than 60.00 I fixed my broken key fob and got a new one. Just thought I would throw it out there in case someone needed it.
Now wait on those stickers to get here from who knows where. Lol
