How to Change Battery in Audi Key Fob
Identify the Battery Type
Start by determining the type of battery your Audi key fob requires. Most Audi key fobs use a CR2032 battery, but it’s always best to double-check your owner’s manual or consult with your local Audi dealership to ensure proper compatibility.
Prepare Your Workspace
Find a clean and well-lit area to work on your key fob. Having a small tray or container to hold the tiny screws and other components can be helpful to prevent them from rolling away or getting lost.
Open the Key Fob
Use a small flathead screwdriver or a coin to carefully pry open the seam between the two halves of the key fob. Gently twist the screwdriver or coin to separate the pieces without applying too much force.
Remove the Old Battery
Once the key fob is open, locate the battery compartment. Use your screwdriver or a small pair of tweezers to carefully remove the old battery by prying it out or lifting it up.
Insert the New Battery
Take the new battery and insert it into the key fob, ensuring proper orientation as indicated by the “+” and “-” signs. Make sure the battery is securely in place within the compartment.
Reassemble the Key Fob
Carefully align the two halves of the key fob and press them together until they snap back into place. Ensure that all the seams are properly aligned and that the key fob is securely closed.
Test the Key Fob
After replacing the battery and reassembling the key fob, test it to make sure it’s functioning properly. Check if you can lock and unlock your Audi remotely as before.
That’s it! You have successfully changed the battery in your Audi key fob. Remember to dispose of the old battery properly and keep spare batteries on hand for future replacements.
