Recommended Posts

trying to figure out how to swap a blade or a pill

without destroying old or new one.



It's pretty easy. Just pop open the head and swap out the blade and pill. Here is a link to Pelican parts tech answers with pictures. Hope it helps.


Changing remote head

exactly what I was looking for -- this is what I thought had to be done -- but figured I'd ask before I ruined a costly item.

thank you very much!

I just did it, flipped it from the bottom first, then used metal tweesers to pull it out, not as fragile as I first thought.

I then transferred it a few times to the GT conversion FOB but could not allign the buttoms, but the ignition did turn

only with that glass pill thing.

I am going to see if the local dealer will programme the new GT fob head from Pelican.

They guys who cut the key, as the dealer couldn't gave me a spare which solves my spare problem coz the only key

I had before was a very worn out original that only unlocked the doors 30% of the time.

One way or another a simple swap the guts of the GT / 911 Fob is not so simple, the buttons did not allign on my swap but

the part comes with "the gutts" so I will see if the dealer can sync them and the original key.
