Yes. Swapping the remote is easy. I wasn't sure from your picture if it or the outer case was the broken part.

Anyone ever successfully remove the transponder? It would beworth a try wwouldn't it?
I've just done this for our 2006 Yaris 4dr hatch. Original key was a water resistant rubber like surface over unlock / lock button. Over time the rubber would wear a hole where the buttons were. I don't know why Toyota went this way but I bought a replacement Toyota key blank which had individual hard plastic 2 buttons. After hearing what the local NZ Toyota dealer wanted $343 NZD ($213 for the key remote + $130 for shop time to reprogram) - I took matters into my own hand.

Purchased a blank key with remote shell online $15, then swapped remote keyless entry module / battery into the new key. Took it down to a key cutting shop and had it cut for $13. The shop told me I needed a transponder which he was correct, what most people do is have 2 sets of keys (which didn't make sense). The original key house was cracked and could barely turned the key in the ignition, so it made good sense to butcher it up to retrieve the transponder. Toyota used some epoxy like glue which proved to be difficult in getting the chip out - i'm sure many may have ruined the transponders by careless cutting. Had used hack saw and a sharp razor blade and small jewellery flat head screwdriver (for careful prying). You know Toyota could of easily made the chip removable as the chip fits snug enough into the new key.

I guess Toyota dealers don't have the skill or want the risk of trying to extract the transponder chip out. Much easier and profitable to charge out for new key and programming.
