    Help!

    2 of the keys have become stuck in my RNS-E. Problem is, I have no Audi anymore so I can't slot it back in and try pull it out again.

    Will a screw driver or something gently slipped into the side of the key move it a bit or has anyone got experience of getting stuck keys out some other way??

    You have to press the copper coloured spring in with your finger or a screwdriver, then angle the removal key towards the centre of the RNS-E and it will come out.

    Yup, as above. Just push the springy bit in and it will pop right out. this happenned to me with mine too.

    By the way, I passed your old S3 in Drogheda before Christmas.

    Cheers lads, I have a guy hopefully taking it off me tonight for his 08 white S3 so I have the keys still in it.

    Marc - some rich kid had it bought for him by his mother I am told. Owns a chipper up there!!

    There aren't that many wealthy chip shop owners up here. Must keep an eye out and see if I can figure out who it is.
