Hello All

Where can I purchase a replacement key fob for my 2012 Touareg ? Can I get this cut somewhere or do I have to go to the dealer ?

Cheers

I'm pretty sure that's a dealer only thing as the car itself has to be programed to the new fob. Search the forums here-- I'm sure it's been answered in detail already.

A new key fob is almost a dealer only option.

Due to legal pressure, there are a select few locksmiths that can now get access to the VW system and get you replacement keys.

In my opinion, VW made sure that the costs to these locksmiths were high enough that, from a practical viewpoint, you can not save any money by going this route.

So, you can call around until you manage to find an independent that can sell you an over-priced key, or you can just go to the dealer and buy an over-priced key.

Dealer. And if you only have one key, don't delay getting the replacement or Murphy's Law will ensure you get locked out with your only key sitting in the trunk glinting at you in the sunshine!
