Detailed Step by Step Process:

  1. Identify the Type of Key Fob: The Volkswagen Tiguan key fob comes in two versions – a metal version and an all-black version. The battery replacement process is the same for both.

  2. Gather the Required Tools: To replace the battery, you will need a small-sized screwdriver or a thin metal instrument, and a CR2032 battery.

  3. Remove the Internal Key: Look for a switch on the top of the key fob. Pull the switch back to open it, allowing you to remove the internal key.

  4. Open the Back Cover: Use the small-sized screwdriver or thin metal instrument to pry off the back section of plastic. The thin metal instrument works better for easier removal. Insert the instrument so that it is past the metal and the tip is in the plastic. Search for the right spot and apply pressure to pry off the back cover. For the all-black version, the plastic cover is more flexible, making it easier to remove.

  5. Alternative Method with a Regular-Sized Screwdriver: If you don’t have a small-sized screwdriver or thin metal instrument, you can use a regular-sized screwdriver. Insert the screwdriver into the seam and apply pressure to open it slightly. Once the seam starts to open, continue applying pressure to remove the back cover.

  6. Prize Out the Battery: Once the back cover is removed, use the screwdriver to come in between the two tabs and pry the battery out of its position.

  7. Insert the New Battery: When inserting the new CR2032 battery, ensure that the positive side with the plus sign is facing up. Slide the new battery under the designated section and click it into place.

  8. Reattach the Back Cover: Align the back cover properly with the key fob and squeeze it back into place.

  9. Replace the Internal Key: Put the internal key back in its place.
