I dissected one of the valet / mickey mouse keys to look for the transponder.

couple of things :
1. its really tough to cut the plastic open
2. there is rectangular marking which indicates the location (and side of the key) of the transponder
3; it might be possible to stick a small angled pick into the "rectangular marking" and pull the chip out

hope this helps someone that wants to remove the transponder chip and insert into another remote fob.

Excellent show-how-to procedure. Was the band aid a result of cutting into it?
:)

no... but i did go through 4 dremel cutting discs ... only because i wanted to preserve the key plastic so i could illustrate where the chip was for others...

i do think it might be easier and possible to unwedge the chip out after making some strategic cuts (on the underside of where the chip and the slot location are)

ps: the transponder chip seems to be well protected in its own plastic. so i would not worry too much about using some brute force to remove it.
