    open your key up by pulling the push button section and the flip key section apart, it is printed inside of the push button part along with the part number

    this guide is for a VW key but its the same design: DIY Key Fob Battery replacement

    So we get a b7 key,swap the immob chip and fit your existing blade,so what part do we need vag-com for?? is this just for the remote locking part of things in which case the new key must be the same mghz as your old one??
    Anyone clear this up for me?
