Sorry I can't help with the mechanical components.
I have never heard of the card being programmed the way you suggest.
As far as I know the cards are program once only. They will not work on another car once used.
Also now, to tighten up on security ( and gain some more profit) you can only get the cards from Renault themselves on production of proof of ownership of the car. They will then supply and programm a card for you. Costs vary greatly from dealer to dealer but expect to pay in the region of £100 - £120. You may be able to get it done cheaper if the car is in the garage for something else at the time!
