    Hi Welcome to the forum .
    If you have bought a new shell of the correct size and type I dont see why not. Transfer the transponder chip (which is very small,) and the VHF central locking transmitter over from the old key, and get the blade cut by a keycutter. Best to replace the vhf transmitter battery at the same time.

    With some designs it might even be possible to change the blade and use the original cut one
