I too am a new user to the forum (and a new WRX user for the last few months!). Would love to be able to get the flip key housing (I've seen them on ebay but don't want to end up buying the wrong thing). Anyone selling or know where I can get it? Thanks and very much appreciated!

Hey everyone, just wanted to share a link for a pdf from Subaru about replacement key info.... https://subaru.locksmithsdrm.com/sr-...t_key_info.pdf

I noticed there were a few questions about which keys / blanks are interchangeable or whatever. Check out page 2 of the pdf to see exactly what the keys look like; that might clear some things up.

Hope this helps a little.

Btw I ordered a flip key housing from xluben recently; why bother trying to get a slightly cheaper one from ebay? Personally I'd rather pay a little extra for quality, and xluben's price is fair and reasonable.

I know the thread is long, but I have answered this at least a couple times ;-)

Use a 2009 Legacy Key, plenty have already done this. If your model doesn't have the transponder chip it there is one less hurdle for you.

So just to be clear, the 2009 Legacy key Keyless Entry Remote is able to be programmed to the 02-05 Imprezas keyless entry system?
I looked though the whole thread and there didn't seem to be any conclusive info and I just want to make 100% sure.

Think you need the keyless module from the car as well. That's what I had to do for my 10.

Yes you are correct. To give you some background since I know it helps me to understand...think of it this way: any Subaru that can use the classic "teardrop" remote can use the 2009 Legacy key remote. If you go to Subaru tomorrow to get a new remote for say an 02 WRX, they will sell you a teardrop, the part number is going to be the same as the 05-07 Legacy. The 2009 Legacy remote is compatible, but far more convenient, and you can also use that to make the flip key if you like. (*make sure you follow remote programming for your particular car, it changed over the years)

The 08-10 Impreza (09-10 Forester) is an "island of incompatibility" for whatever reason. The remotes look exactly the same as the old ones but don't work together. That is the problem I found and the basis of the need to swap the keyless unit.

11-up is a new era where all of the remotes are compatible again between Legacy/Forester/Impreza/WRX so you can use the 11+ Legacy keys.

The 2012 Impreza (non laser cut) is not compatible... there aren't enough digits/letters for the transponder code... (I believe there are 7)

I have to say that I've read the instructions no less than a dozen times and got so confused that it's not even funny. I guess it's just the way it's written out that doesn't quite work with my line of thinking. I got my switchblade key done for my 12 STi, and with the leftover key part along with a $25 purchase of a used key on ebay, I was able to make a key/remote combo key for my wife's 11 Forester.

So here's what you need and what we're doing with them:

What you need:
  • a transponder chip (best taken out from your valet key)
  • a new key/remote combo Legacy key (because you need the blank key and the remote)
  • a switchblade blank key (for the shell)

What you're doing is:
  1. pull the transponder chip from the donar key (it's costly to reprogram a new transponder as far as I understand)
  2. put the transponder from the donar into the switch blade key shell (so that this new key will actually start your car)
  3. put the remote into the switchblade shell
  4. take the remote code from remote off the Legacy key and program that into your car (you can register up to 4 remotes at a time, pain in the butt if you mess this up)
  5. now your switchblade key will have a remote programmed, correct transponder, and a blank key ready to cut
  6. get this new key unit to a locksmith and get a laser cut to match your car key
  7. if it starts, then you're all set!

Now since I got the spare blank Legacy key shell from this procedure, I went ahead to ebay and bought a used Legacy key, and all I needed is the remote unit from it so I don't care if it's a used key at all. The one that I bought for my 11 Forester is CWTWBU766. I then programmed this new remote to the car, pulled the transponder chip, and put both into my leftover Legacy key shell, and whola! I got a brand new combo key for my Forester!

Warning:
Be careful when you're cutting the donar key. I guess you could possibly damage the chip but the chances is pretty slim, but the real danger there is cutting yourself if you're not careful. You'll be slicing and pushing the blade in pretty hard so one slip and you'll probably lose half a finger. Make sure you're working on a non-slip cutting mat and a sturdy box cutter blade, exacto does not work (i chipped my exacto blade and never got deep enough)
