if you put key backwards only way now is spray slight wd40 in push star hole and have some good pliers grab the remote hard and pull back and forth there is no steps that is how we do at dealer if it brakes is gone brake either way if you take to shop so try on your own worst case you wil need new push start hole replaced and maybe new remote but again if you pull it out it will be all fine
