Here is a quick little video on how to open up this Audi key fob and retrieve the battery. This is a bit tricky so I hope you found this video helpful!

Newest fob for 2019+ Audi Q8 A6 A7 e-tron GT S8 A8 FOB key battery replacement

Audi advanced key
An evolution of keyless entry technology, Audi advanced key lets you open your doors or start the car without even reaching for your pocket. But should the remote ever get misplaced or damaged, only an authorized dealer can provide a replacement.

Here we are going to replace the dead battery in a new style Audi key fob with a fresh one. It is sleeker than previous versions and we first saw this in a 2019 Q8.

Your video looks so simple but it didn't work for my Australian delivered 2021 S3. I looked through the other comments and found that Andrew Bass from the UK described how to open my identical looking but quite different key fob battery cover. Thanks Andrew. However, my problem doesn't end there. The battery is locked down by two fixed plastic tabs and I have given up on removing it without breaking the tabs. Unfortunately this means a visit to my nearest Audi dealership and probably a long wait. It beats me why I have easily changed button batteries in multiple devices over the years but Audi have "designed" something reminiscent of Alexander the Great's Gordian Knot.

Andrew Bass says:

Thankyou. However I’m in the UK and after a lot of fiddling about we realised it opens differently for the UK A3 model 2021. Exact same key fob as in the video but no screwdriver needed. Just very carefully prise from the side of the panel that pops up with fingernail. The clips that hold it are in the corners and not at the end.

Randee Fox says:

Finally someone who can teach! Best instruction by showing us the little clip after the back is off. Excellent! THANKS!

Neil Cook says:

Thanks. Manual, when I finally found it, didn't make it clear. Thanks for taking the time. Same key on 2020 A6 Avant
