£30 to get an auto locksmith to program your key is a good price, you don't have to go to ford to program it, so keep your auto locksmiths number handy.
The link you sent I'm 99.9% sure its no good for your car.... The first four digits of the part number has to be 4S6T(for the pre facelift) not 6S6T, as that is for the facelift model. You will need one with the numbers 4S6T 15K600 C(*) or 4S6T 15K600 D(*).... Please note the (*) represents any letter.
Once you have found the correct GEM with the correct part number, you then need to contact the seller, to find out if it came from a car with 3or5doors, because if you buy one with an incorrect number of doors, then it will throw up the door open warning light on the dash.
Once you have the correct part its really easy to fit.... There's 5plugs and two screws.
When you replace the GEM this only affects the remote locking so your other key will work as it does now(as that is just a key without remote) the transponder is by your ignition barrel and won't affect this.
So you will only have to program the new key,I think the locksmith will only program it for the immobiliser, not the remote locking, but you can easily do this yourself by turning your new key in the ignition from 0 to II 4 times within 5 seconde(until you hear a tone) then you just press a button on the new key then, hey presto! You have a remote key :-)
Yes I did this mod at the beginning of the year and programed a flip key(myself) as I had two original keys. One of the best additions I have added to my car..... Well worth while.
If you need any more info don't hesitate to ask.
