Hello all,<p>For the life of me, I can't seem to find where the valet key goes in to unlock the driver's door. I see the lock symbol, but don't see the lock. Does this cover come off? Can anyone educate me on this? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> Thanks.

I've been in places where the remote will not work due to RF transmissions being jammed.

I have an open key slot on my car... Is that something PCC related? I say this calls for a picture. <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">

Once its off there is a <I>real</I> key slot for the emergency key.

Ahh. Thats a PCC thing. I have a regular keyhole because I don't have PCC.
