how to program spare wk2 key fob?

Hi. I've got a spare key fob from another wk2. I wanted to see if I could program the key fob to my new wk2 that way I can have a 3rd key fob in the event something happened to the first two. Would it be possible to program the fob by myself? Can anyone post the instructions on how to do that if they know?
Thanks

Someone correct me if I am wrong but I believe they are one time programmable such that you cannot program them a 2nd time.

+2. I have read or been told that every time I've looked into the subject.

They need to be programmed by the dealer and yes, they cannot be reused...program-once and done. That's a security feature.
