Hello ag, I’m Newf from the Home Depot’s how-to Community. Thank you for your question.
You do not need the old remote in order to use the Clicker.
The Clicker can be programmed in 2 ways, depending on how old, (or what model), of door opener you have. Either you will set the DIP switches on the clicker to match the settings on the head unit, or you will press a “learn” button found on newer head units to program the Clicker.
Complete instructions are included with the new remote.
I hope this helps,
