Had yet to see one of these so I decided to post it.
Step 1.
Press side button on remote control key and remove emergency key.


Step 2:
Firmly push cap in direction of arrow to remove.



This is what it should look like if done correctly

Step 3:
Lift the cap off the remote.


Step 4:
Gently pry the cover to access battery.



Step 5:
Remove Battery and replace with new.


Step 6:
Re-assemble. Just reverse the steps and you are done.

Re: Passat B6 Key Fob battery replacement DIY (B6 4Motion)

hopefully... I was bored at work and none of the techs even knew how to change em... so I figured it out.... I also figured that the people here would need edumacated as well.
Now I am just waiting for the "I already knew how to do that" crowd to chirp in... though hopefully none of them have graduated from MKIV/MKV yet.

Excellent illustration!
Now one question, what size battery does it use? (to make sure we get the correct battery before taking the key apart)

Re: (x9t)

I was bored at work. Took longer to get the files from the pdf scv manual and to my photobucket than it did to type up. If you want anything from the svc manual let me know.

It activates the alarm. Though it'a called the "panic" button, I think most Americans use it to find their car at the mall.

If you change the battery quickly, are you still going to have to reprogram the key or will it hold your information?

I did the change a few times just to get a feel for it and I haver never had to re-prog my fob.
