I’ve broken the chip in my VW key what do I do?: Most VW keys contain a glass transponder chip that is concealed inside the top plastic part that attached onto the remote fob. Lots of people try to save cash by purchasing parts from ebay and doing a self refurb job of their keys. In the process the glass transponder chip can smash and break or  fall out and get misplaced. We can replace damaged or lost VW transponder chips and reprogram the key to make the car start.

What to do if your VW key is broken?: We see lots of VW keys that are cracked and broken. If your key is broken on the silver knuckle and the blade has snapped off we can help repair your key and save you cash. VW will not repair keys, they only replace. We can replace the broken VW key blade and make the key work as good as new. If your key case is broken and you are unable to connect your key to a key ring we can supply you with a new key case to refurbish your key.

Is your VW key just spinning in the door lock? VW locks are renowned for failing and not working correctly. The problem is normally with the back paddle that attaches to the lock barrel and activates the lock mechanism. Over time the lock corrodes and becomes brittle. Eventually the back paddle snaps and falls off into the door leaving the lock inoperable. We can replace and repair all VW locks and save you money over getting a new lock fitted at VW.
