|Here is the old key:|
First off remove it from you key chain and stand on end. It's much easier to open this way I found out. See Pic:
Next remove the cover, battery/button and metal plate so they don't fall out as you work. The battery spring just sits there so you could remove it too but mine stayed in place. See Pic:
Then stand it on end again and pry the lock spring holder up and out. When that slides out the lock spring comes out and the slide lock that holds the actual key in will slide out too.
When all the parts come out, the next step is to remove the key from the head. It may fall right out or it may fight you. If it gives you problems push the key out from the head. All your parts will look like this:
Now it's time to put a new head on your key. Insert the key in the head, insert the key lock, then the lock spring, then the lock spring holder. In this pic I'm pushing the lock spring in while inserting the lock spring holder:
Next install your, metal plate, battery spring, battery/button as you can see here:
Snap your cover back on:
Then you have a new looking key!
I hope this helps someone in the future. Good Luck!
