If it's a new board inside the remote casing then it can only be user programmed if you already have two keys programmed to your car,if you don't then it has to be VAG-COM or a trip to a VW main dealer.

Or if the board is ok and it's only the case that's a mess then just swap the board over,it should work as before once you've done this.If not resync it by turning the key in eiather direction in the door lock and pressing either button.

Thats great thanks.Yep its just the bottom half,board is in good nick.Thanks again chris
