    On my S3, there's a speed sensor located at the back of the gearbox, you need to remove the airbox to get to it, I would have thought it's the same location on your car. It's held down by one screw and has a rubber seal, so needs a firm tug to pull out!

    The sensors he's talking about are abs speed sensors - totally different.

    Try looking where JoJo has suggested for the actual speed sensor for the speedo - if its not there it's around that area

    Just had a quick look on www.vagcat.com for you but cant find the sensor.

    If you have a bit of time it'd be worthwhile registering and looking through to see if you can find the sensor tho.
