2005 Keyfob issue?

I have a 2005VW Touareg that I purchased back in 2010..its been very good to me and since it was purchased, I noticed that my keyfob never worked past 20ft away from it. there were times where I would park my treg and forget to lock the doors only try to get as close to it as possible to lock the door. I never really questioned it because those situations happen rarely but I always wondered what if I was at a huge parking lot and forgot where I parked? the panic button wouldnt work and I would have to be close to my treg in order to trigger it. Is there something that I can do to adjust or replace an antenna or something? Just curious if this has happened to anyone and could it be fixed?

The distance limit is deliberate so no one can jump into your car before you do.

You can always place the key unit firmly against your temple and then operate it.

The operating distance will increase to around 60 feet.

VW Touareg models are as follows:
Generation 1: T1 is model 7LA & facelift T2 is model 7L6
Generation 2: T3 is model 7P5 & facelift T4 is model 7P6
Generation 3: T5 is model CR7 [Not available in "VW Atlas" North America!]
