Pop it in, clear the code, have fun.

BTW you need a T-20 screwdriver with a bore in the drive tip.

Or you can buy a set of these:

No reprogram needed, but (if you have your radio code ;) then I'd disconnect the battery for 1 minute. This way the DME forgets it's old settings and learns from scratch

$10, makes me laugh since Porsche put those there so you would have to go the dealer!
