Just finished getting this done with my car. There are extensive
notes in the archive on the procedures.
Audi has a new, improved lock mechanism that doesn't break as
easily as the old one. The parts are *not* interchangeable, so
you will need a new lock cylinder, lock ring, and carrier. About
$25 in parts. Don't forget to swap the tumblers into the new
cylinder so your old key still works.
