New key
 
Hey Guys,
Both of my key "cases" are now cracked and my keyring is barely hanging on :) Wondering if I can buy a "case" like the one below and replace, instead of buying a new key. Even with a discount, i think they're around $100. Let me know if there's a cheaper way and if I can just "swap parts". Thanks!!

eBay shell

You will have to have the new blade cut at the dealer but the shell and blade is only like $5-$20.

Call and ask how much just to cut the blade.

I have a buddy who's a Chryco tech, so that helps. SO - this HAS to be done @ the dealership correct? I just bought 2 shells on eBay for $11 shipped :D

I think the dealer only has the tools to cut the blades.

I myself have a key machine but I don't see it working for the WK blades.

If send you a key, can you have your friend cut it for me? That's only if the dealer is charging a grip.
