    Question Is there a new VW Tiguan Keyfob ?

    Test drove a new 2021 Skoda Karoq today and they have appeared to have changed the keyfob for the better

    VW have removed the stupid button that pops out the key which always seems to happen when the keyfob is in your pocket
    Its also thinner and lighter and looks similar to this



    Does anyone know if there is a similar new keyfob for the VW Tiguan as I would be happy to get rid of my current one ?

    I just got some of that stuff you put in drawers to stop stuff moving and held a small piece over the slot and pushed key in and trimmed it off Key has never popped in nearly 2 years

    Also bought one of these which recesses the button somewhat Because i want to know which one is mine by colour

    Can you post a photo of this as not sure I have understood what this is ?

    Looking at how to dismantle the keyfob, looks like it is pretty easy to just remove the physical key or transfer it to a replacement keyfob where the key is recessed with no button

    The Keyfob you mention as "new", has been around since the B8 Passat was released in 2015.
    So both my Alltrack and Superb have exactly the same keyfobs.

    There is a new key though, the MK8 for example has the very new style keyfobs; Key fob battery replacement VW Golf 8, Leon KL, Skoda Octavia NX e Audi A3 8Y 2020/21 Tutorial - YouTube

    Thanks mate, that looks like a cheap easy fix. I think I have similar stuff at home just different color.

    Will try that before anything more dramatic

    Actually that $6 cover from Aliexpress is enough to stop the button from being pushed in far enough to release the key

    I just ran my thumb over it and I had to push it right in to release it and if anything flat ran over it in your pocket it doesnt go down far enough to release the key

    I had a look at the Aliexpress cover but as the key is already bulky, I did not want to make it any thicker.

    If I was going to buy something from Aliexpress, for a few dollars more I may buy this

    MQB Car Modified Replacement Remote Key Shell Key Case for VW Golf MK7 Jetta Tiguan Polo for Superb Octavia Yeti Fabia for SEAT|Key Shell| - AliExpress

    Watching the video looks like it takes about 10 mins to switch the keyfob motherboard and key across

    Forgot to ask, looking at the photo what do you use to open the key if you need to and take the stuff out ?

    Cover is wafer thin actually so hardly makes any difference

    Use a pin or a nail or thin key lifts the end ok Last night used the nail scissors that were on my desk
