I was hoping you wouldn't ask. Whenever I've had to do it I just faffed around with it, following a number of conflicting instruction online until it worked!

Can't remember for certain what worked last time but I found this on my PC, saved to a text file, so it's probably what I've followed previously:

Key Fob Programming
VW/ Audi/ Seat/ Skoda

Remote Control Programming (1997 ON)
Procedure
1. Switch Ignition ON and leave key in the ignition.
2. Mechanically lock the vehicle using the Drivers door using a second key
3. Using the remote control press the Unlock button once, and the horn will sound once.
4. Wait 6 seconds and press the unlock button once to activate the coding procedure. The remote control will now be programmed.
Note: When performing programming on additional remotes the procedure is exactly the same, except you press the unlock button 2, 3 or 4 times for different remote.
For example: If programming 2 remotes press the unlock button twice with a 1 second interval between each press, repeat for 3 and 4 remotes.
5. Switch ignition OFF.
6. Remove key from ignition and check for operation.
7. The coding procedure can be repeated up to 4 times for additional remotes.
8. The ignition must be switched OFF between programming each remote control.

Remote Control Erasing (1997 ON)
Procedure
1. Switch ignition ON and leave key in the ignition.
2. Mechanically lock the vehicle using the Drivers door using a second key.
3. Press the remote control unlock button 5 times in 1-second intervals.
A short horn will sound.
4. Wait 6 seconds and press the unlock button once to activate memory erase.
5. Switch ignition OFF, all remotes are now tuned in..
If I remember correctly, the horn doesn't sound but the headlights flash (or was that one of my PF '8s?).

From memory, the way this guy does it is correct for our cars:

Thanks Mark, very helpful, I'll see if I can look at this tomorrow.

This is the first time that I’ve had need to replace the key fob battery. The spare one works fine, as did the everyday one yesterday, but the everyday one wouldn’t work today. So, which part of the key fob comes off - the part with the logo or the other part? The slot seems to be angled to lift the logo part, but it won’t budge!

Jim, you put a small flat screwdriver in the slot at right angles to the fob and twist to force the gap open - the two ends of the fob will slide apart from each other.
It can need a bit of force, it's a tight snap fit.

Basically the blade end is a short shell that encloses and pulls away from the buttons end. The buttons end can then be popped open to replace the battery.

The blade end is held together by screw under the logo, but you don't need to undo that to change battery, it's in the other half.
Only time I've had the blade end apart was when the spring flip mechanism went wrong. I think the immobiliser chip may be in there too.

Brilliant - thanks - that worked!

But there are 2 batteries with a combined voltage of 5.74 volts. The little engraved diagram in the fob suggest that it should, indeed, have 2 batteries. I’ll dig out my magnifying glass to see what type of batteries I need and what the voltage should be.

BTW, whenever I talk to people about this forum, they’re incredulous about how helpful (and rapid) forum members are.. This response to 6 minutes!

I think it's a testament to the D2 that no-one even remembers what the remote batteries are!

They are indeed!

Just about the only battery that I don’t have!
