I chipped a little corner off my chp and it still works fine transplanted in the fob.

However, not like the OP I had a hard time getting my key cut. I went to the local Lowes and the lady said "oh no, we cant cut that for you.... you could sue us for cutting you a key without the transponder!" haha thanks ma'am.

I dont have any pics, but take your time and you should be able to get it out. I didnt this a few years ago. When I went with the Sti key and Zerosports push start.
