2009 Audi A4 Avant: How To Remove an Ignition Key Redux
October 28, 2010
It's been over a year since I first posted the above video on how to remove the seemingly stuck key from our 2009 Audi A4 Avant's ignition after editor Chris Walton and I blogged about our ordeals just trying to exit the vehicle. And I STILL get messages on YouTube asking me how I did it as, apparently, Googling an answer is no help and I couldn't find anything about it on our Edmunds forums. So just for the Audi A4 Avant owners who missed it the first time:
When you want to take the key out, push it in like a button. When you hear a clicking sound, pull the key out. Ta-da!
I also made sure to post this in the caption for the video on YouTube.
