Key shell conundrum

I'm trying to source a new shell for my key but so far the ones I've tried don't fit my internals.

The key I have is the top one but the ones that seem to be available are the bottom. The issue is that although the board seems to fit you can't actually clip the two halves of the shell together with it in.

For reference my car is a 2007 Panda with the 3 button flip remote.

Is there a possibility that your key is NOT original..??

Where are you getting the replacements from.. it may be one of the forums key specialists can help..
Where are you based..?

Yes it's definitely the original key. I've bought two pattern keys now off of two separate eBay sellers now but neither have fitted, despite being listed as being suitable the vintage of Panda that I have. The only other 3 button flip remote I have seen listed online has a different battery tray all together.

I'm based in Bristol.

It's a 100HP and yes it has remote boot release. It was first registered in April 2007, if that helps.

Think I have a new Original one lurking in the van. As soon as I get the kids in bed I'll go check.
