    Where can you get that ?

    I love Chianti and Pinot Grigio but Vino Tonite sounds a very cheeky little number !

    No it can't !

    VCDS cannot read the 'coded' bit in the car immobiliser that was coded in Germany.

    You need a specialist bit of kit as well to read that information before the transponder chip will work.

    Sorry mate !

    Use a very sharp modelling knife with the thinnest blade possible (not a stanley knife ! ) and carefully score the plastic down each side of the transponder. Keep doing this until you have broken the glue away.

    Personally I wouldn't recommend heating with a soldering iron !!

    you can sinter powdered metal onto the key, thus creating a new blank key ready to cut.

    When blades cost next to nothing & a key can be cut also for next to nothing, I see no point in doing that at all.

    Have you taken the new key apart yet ? If you have then you will see under the pcb ( which you have to remove, again carefully by cutting one of the plastic melted tabs off), that there is a slot next to the blade that the chip sits in.

    You will also see that you do not have to remove the pin to change the blade, just remove the whole thing from the old key and locate, together with the spring and locking mechanism into the new key.

    Glue it in & all of these type keys have the same blade in, the prefacelift blades were not the same size & in default state cant be fitted, but with a dremel you can cut it down & thinner to fit in no worries, as I have on several keys & grind a small groove in where the pin sits.

    You can ever so minimally bend the blade so it fits snuggly inside flush, not to much or it'll snap.

    No, you just need to read the thread as I already advised the old key blade wont fit the new key unless you dremel it down to fit, you dont swap the key holder as such just the blade or get a new blade cut.

    Interesting thread and what prompted me to join the forum. I've been looking for another key. One of mine has been through the washing mchine. Although it still works it will kill a battery in 48 hours. Now I know how to take it apart I guess it's worth giving it a scrub with some cleaning fluid.

    I've been phoning around for someone who could do a job. One guy quoted me "190 + vat and we will probably have to take your clocks out of the car". Surely the dealer won't charge much more than that.

    It's a 57 plate. The guy I was talking to said I am right on the boundary of when Audi suddenly made life a lot more difficult for key cloners. My key is the same as the one you have bought.

    I can open the car and drive the car OK as long as I put a fresh battery in so it's OK as a spare. At the moment I keep a new battery in it but i've wrapped the battery in cling film to stop it discharging.

    I noticed there are plenty of new key fobs on ebay at the moment for 45. I think I'll dismantle it and give it a good blast with switch cleaner. I need to find my tiny torx screw drivers first though.

    I did this mod by cutting my transponder out of my old key and then putting it into a new key which I then used VAG-COM to program the central locking too. Took me about 10 minutes and has worked for the past 6 months. Have a look at my build thread if you want more info.
