Porsche key blade swap... Need help
 
I have the older 3 button key (lock/unlock, frunk, trunk) as shown below. Bought this key from eBay from a guy who forgot to give this key to the person he sold his car to. I want to take the blade and pill from my old key which has worn out buttons and transfer it to this new key. How can I remove the key blade?...I don't see anything to press to release the blade. Also, where is the pill? I know that the key won't work unless I transfer the immobilizer pill also. Thanks in advance.

Figured it out myself...You just pull back the small piece with the spring in it, and it comes out. Then the key blade comes out. The immobilizer pill is right below it (the piece that looks like a capsule). Swap those out and you gotta brand new key. It works on the car fine, and not bad for only $30 bucks!...
