I'm trying to replace this as I found out that the problem from my ignition/key lock is perhaps the ignition cylinder and also I would probably will have to change the switch. Is this kind of work only Audi dealer service center can do? or any auhorized mechanic will be able to do it? I went to NAPA to get the parts and they say if the key has computer chip only audi can replace as such. So any idea guys? have you have same problem with me? I have A4 98 2.8L avant. Thanks for the infos!.[wrench]

i believe there is a recall on that. take it to your dealer and they will replace it for you. mine screwed up before the recall was sent out and it only cost me 22 bucks

I did call them and they say mine was not the one on recall list. I saw that yours is 97? mine is 98.5
