    Key swap

    Does anybody know if the internals from my original key will swap into a newer flip type key and still work fine?

    This is the style of key i have now 2 Button Audi A4 A6 A8 remote key fob on eBay (end time 07-Jun-11 20:34:36 BST)

    This is the newer flip type but its a case an blank blade AUDI A4 A6 A8 2 BUTTON REMOTE FLIP KEY CASE FOB SHELL on eBay (end time 24-Jun-11 14:19:08 BST)

    I know the blade will need cut, wheres best for this??? But i want to know if my internals will work with the button layout of the newer type to save hassle of re-coding etc a full new key???

    does the remote unclip from the rest of the key?

    If so, buy a flip front on ebay (they're about 6 quid) and have the blade cut, then transfer your immo transponder over

    If it doesnt then i'd just get it coded as a second key.

    Out of interest, where is the transponder pip located? I take it that it's in the front part of the key but I've tried before and can't get it apart

    I broke the immo transponder, dont think you've got a spare one of those :P

    Ordered two new ones on ebay, and i'll have to code them in with vagtacho.

    Yeah, I was looking for my spare key but can't find the damn thing.

    Just following on from your topic foxmeister, hope you get sorted, just wanted to add a further question.

    I have a 2 button flip remote but the remote is badly worn. Can the key itself be swapped over with the inners to a new one like the eBay link you posted or does a new key have to be cut with then the inners swapped?

    Cheers

    The remote detaches from the front half of the key with the blade/flip.

    You only need to get anohter remote
