Greetings from Centreville, VA.

I've got a 2000 VW Turbo New Beetle. I bought it used in 2006. It's treated me okay so far, even though I've coughed over about 5-6k in maint costs since I bought it. Labor is expensive here in Northern VA, and the whole engine has to come apart to perform some repairs, so that's most of the reason.

I'm here right now because my key broke (the actual key part, the cut metal part, came out of the remote. The metal that was holding it in cracked and broke), so I swapped around some pieces I bought from ebay to put it back together, and now I'm having immobiliser issues. I think I've just about got it figured out from what I've read here so far, but I wanted to make sure I had all the relevant info.

Thanks for hosting this forum here, it's a great resource. Thanks!

Welcome, the blade is held by a pin to the switchblade pivot. You shouldn't have any problems if you just switch the metal part, the immo chip is glued to the plastic in the key half.
