Hi Folks,
Im very new to the Audi experience, so far so good though.
I am also VERY please to have found this forum. Lots of great info here!

I recently bought a 2001 A6 2.8l AWD. I am super happy with this car.
The key however has a broken housing/shell and is all taped together.:mad:

I found a replacement shell with an uncut blade on eBay. When it arrived I took it apart and it appears to me that I can simply remove the "cut blade and electronics" from my old key and place them in the new housing?

Could it really be that simple? Am I missing anything? I do know that my car is equipped with the immobilizer system.
Is there anything hidden that I am not seeing my in my current key?

Thanks in advance for any help.
