Hi, You need to separate the fob part from the key. This is done by using a flat head screwdriver in the slot provided. The slot is mid way on the track that the key folds into. Once you have the key split the fob can then be split , the battery is inside.

Great I'm glad to hear you got it fixed. I was Leaning towards that solution but you got it figured out. As far as key fobs killing batteries, I do not have a solution to that yet. I have the same problem and have had with all of my Jetta's. If I figure it out I will let you know. Good luck and I hope the best for you.

The battery in my VW key fob is dead, now I cant start the engine


No. VW has made it nearly impossible to solve any key-related problems without a costly visit to the dealership. Battery must be replaced, and I assure you. the dealership will advise you that the ONLY place that you can find that particular battery is from the dealership. They like it that way.
