Welcome to FF!

It's trickier for you folks across the pond with a combined key & fob than for us with separate ones for that model year.

If the E-Bay replacement you're looking at swaps in your existing key blank & RFID chip all that's needed is to program the fob into the car system.

If it's a whole new assembly then you're dealing with getting the key cut & programming the key portion into the car as well. That needs two existing original type keys that work in the car now to do it yourself, a "cloned" key doesn't count for this process. (two existing plus the new one)

Cheers

Ford would probably sell you a whole new key assembly, and charge for cutting/programming.

Don't forget to swap the "chip" as well as the key to a new fob, car needs to "see" that by the lock to start.
