I was at a VW show in the summer, there was a dude with a stall cutting keys & cloning fobs. looked at my key in a reader, explained it was too complex for him to do easily that day, and suggested it was easier to look after my one key very carefully.

I have a different barrel on the passenger side and an avy ECU with no inmob in case something stupid ever happens with mine.

I have an '04 Jetta TDI wagon here in the yard for parts. Won't work?

Maybe I should just do like Rich and just use the passenger side door lock from the Jetta.

You might end up with having to put the Jetta barrel into the lupo lock as there are two gens of door lock mechs.

Easy enough to do though but regardless you will have to change the paddle for the one off the lupo.

All I really need is what was called a valet key on our Jettas. It worked in the door and ignition but did not operate the power locks or have a panic button funcion. They told me it still needs to be coded to the ignition.

Here is a story that will be appreciated on this site! Last Sunday I pulled in to fuel up the company truck just as my boss was leaving … in a bright red Mustang! I had no idea he was leaning toward the sportier side of cars so I asked him about it at work later. To make a long story shorter, he got it at a smoking hot price, 1999 35th Anniversary Addition with 72K on it in mint condition. Stored inside all it's life, the old lady that owned it has passes on.

I asked him if he was going to keep it. "No, it's much too small. I don't like small cars. I drove it to Hardisty and back the other day and it scared me! What if I hit a deer?"

I looked it up on the "net", mid sized car, 3,235 pounds!

You should take him for a ride in your loop. He'd think it is a fairground ride! Mustangs are big cars. I first thought that this'd be a story about fuel economy...

The drivers door card fabric is coming loose n the top edge. I am used to VWs having a little plastic bit under the inside door release lever that pops out to revel a screw. Not so here. Any tips on how these come off before I break stuff and find out after the fact would be appreciated. Thanks!
