View Full Version : Key Question

04-23-2005, 04:51 PM
Well my key was starting to look pretty old and the red part of the panic button was ripping so i decided to buy another key off of ebay and the guy said it was blank but when i got it it was already cut. What should i do? Go get VW (heard its alot cheaper then audi) to cut me the key. Or is there any way i could swap the actual metal key parts of the 2 keys?

Unfold it half way and you'll see a little pin. You can punch it out and swap keys.

thanks, now how can i program the buttons, i remember hearing this somewhere but i dont remember how to do it.

Also my new key is a 3 button key, looks like the b6 key, will this work or will i have to get another 2 button key?

i have a valet (not sure how u spell that), a programmed flip out key, and now i bought a flip out key that has 3 buttons instead of 2 buttons like my original key.

New key: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=10372&item=4544947300&rd=1

old key: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=33723&item=7969220961&rd=1

I just cant seem to program the new key, i have tried all of the instructions on the internet.

yeah i'm not sure that key will work with your car. I got a new key from the dealer when mine broke and then tried to use the instructions online and didn't manage it so took it to the dealer and the service guy did it in 30s
