    MK4 Key swap for MK5

    Hey Guys, I'm sure back in 2008 when I first became a member I found a how to thread telling you how to put the mk4 key and innards into the mk5 key cover and convert it to the flick style key?

    Does anyone know if this thread still exists? I had a quick browse but couldn't see it.

    Cheers

    I think from what I recall you don't have to get it reprogrammed but I'm not 100% sure I know you attach your key to the mk5 key and swap the innards around. But not exactly sure how to do it.

    Long time ago!

    Thats true you don't really want to be breaking your own key! Its not that hard to put the standard mk4 key back together I've done that before, and I'm pretty sure its not that hard to do this task overall! I'm sure theres a how to about here, just not in the how to folder lol!
