How do you disable an alarm in a 1997 volkswagen jetta without keyless entry?

If your key fob is not working and every time you try to start the car the alarm goes on try these steps: (These work on my '99 VW Jetta) 1. Unlock the door (so you can get in, of course...) 2. Open the trunk of the car (these will disable the alarm). 3. Now you can start the car. 4. Make sure to close the trunk (unless you're in for some adventure :p) rotate the key counterclockwise in the drivers side door it will unarm the alarm.
