    2002 AUM ECU Riveted?

    Hi All

    Tried to get at my ECU this evening (2002 A3) but there appears to be a riveted plate covering the connectors?
    Is this normal? I haven't seen this in any reference guides for removal or any other posts I've seen.
    Do the bolts have to be cut?

    many thnks

    I couldn't better a better angle for a photo. I have seen threads mentioning this kind of thing on newer Golfs etc but not an 8l.
    I've got an AGU A3 as well and that doesn't have this so wonder why the difference

    Probably to stop people messing around with things they shouldn't
    I quite often say I'm going to do things.

    Then never do them.

    Seen it a few times, not sure why some do and some don't. They are a pain. Dremel a slot, grind them off, chisel, centre punch etc

    Normally cut a slot in them and screw them out... shouldn't effect mapping as it can be port flashed

    VAGs started getting these around 2002 on... seen a few now... mainly TT's but have had an S3 or LCR (can't remember which) in with this too...

    I can confirm that an 2000 AUM A3 doesn't have this, as I removed an ECU from one last week.
