    Key Fob Question

    Hi Everyone!

    This issue deals with Key Fobs. I bought a fob housing that included a blank key but no electronics. When I tried to transfer my existing key to it I found that the notches for the button were slightly different and thus didn't allow the button to fully seat and thus wouldn't click closed properly when stowing the key. The fob I bought has a screw that holds it together behind the Chevy symbol. My existing fobs don't have this and have internal clips. I was unaware of this feature of the replacement fob as the seller used an incorrect stock image that made it appear like my fobs.

    Both of my existing fobs have GM PN# 13500222 on them.

    One of my fobs has a damaged key (its bent and separating at the base) so I moved the electronics from it to the replacement fob and will get the blank key cut...so no loss there.

    My other fob though has a perfectly good key and chip but the case splits apart due to broken clips and has on multiple occasions fallen completely apart in my pocket.

    Is it possible to transfer the key its-self to a new housing?

    Thanks!

    P.S. I know I could get a silicone cover for it but would rather not do that if I can get a new housing.

    The key can be transferred. There is a small pin holding it in place. *GENTLY* use a hammer with a small nail or punch to push it out.

    Thank you both! That worked like a charm and saved me the $35 it would have cost to have the blank cut!
