    Solved: CR1620 for key with small double battery. Thanks guys. Now I have the problem of reprogramming my key, I only have one key so that means I need vag.com. lol

    Nah, the key had no battery in it. I know that when you leave the key with no battery for a certain amount of time you will need to re-pair it with the car for buttons to work. The key still starts the car. It's the buttons that don't work.

    Thanks anyway.

    EDIT: I won't have my vag.com cable til after pay day and then I also have to wait a couple of days til it gets delivered.

    Anyone got VAG.com in the Kent area willing to re-program my buttons for a crate of beer or something (we can come to an arrangement) around Thursday the 28th January???

    In fact... I am going to create a new thread pleas reply there.
