Question about 2004 Volkswagen Passat
I got the two halves of the key remote apart but how do I get the part with the battery inside apart so I can replace the battery?
I actually found the instructions for how to take the remote apart, along with illustrations, in my husband's VW Jetta, Golf, GTI Service Manual that he had purchased from an auto parts store a while back (it's those thick red books that tell you how to fix anything and everything). After I got the two halves of the remote apart, I just needed to know where I was pulling the piece with the battery apart. Once I did that, the battery was right inside. The dealer offered to replace the battery for free but the battery costs $8.75. I found a place in Miami that sold FIVE of the batteries for $6.98. Since I was a returnng customer, I got a 10% discount. Problem fixed for $1.25. ;)
