996 TT Key Conversion


Recommended Posts

My 996tt Key is just too badly abused to be used lol

So SunCoast Porsche Dealer was kind enough to honor the PCA discount and sent me the NEW design KEY which is an easy gut swap from old to new! As this process went on you can really see and feel why they went with a new key design. New weather seal design is much better and and the construction is 100% more solid. Of course its light years more pleasing to own.



Old Key


New Key



Old and New OPENed Up


Remove the Transmitting Crystal


Pull back this Clip


and this one


Pull out the Circuit


Pull the woodriff key out that is sitting on a spring to release the pressure on the key blade it self



Pull and you have one dirty key...


Clean the Key Blade using metal polish and bronze wire brush (bronze so you don't scratch the key blade when cleaning.) LOTS of dirt from the keyblade!



So fresh and clean your Key Blade will be


Don't forget to clean the tract ... do it right!


Plug it into the same spot but on your new Key


New All rubber pad in the new key


Plug things back in

New Key with Crest Key Chain

Great post about the key fob, looks like you have helped a few with your info!  :jump:


Love this...

Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car and
Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.
Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall,
Torque is how far you take the wall with you.
