    Cruise Control

    I would like to do this as my first mod but wondered if it is wise considering I am a complete novice or should I leave it to the experts?

    I know it will need coding so will use my local VAG specialist but thought I could save on labour costs fitting it myself

    Do you need to remove the steering wheel and airbag?

    Car is a 60 plate 1.4 TFSI sport with multifunction and Bluetooth.

    It's a fairly straight forward job; I did this myself a few weeks back

    You do need to remove the steering wheel and airbag but again that's very easy.

    Here's the guide I used along with help from JB0o who i purchased the Kit from; top guy and very helpful

    Y
    ou will need some torx bits to complete the job and an M12 spline bit to remove the steering wheel bolt although I used a Torx 55 bit to do that.

    Could you advise of the cost for supply and fitting?

    That would depend on the cars, but see if you can get a number together & we'll go from there as we'd have to check the cars setup initially as some may need another module fitted.

    Depends on what version of steering control module your car has. If it's a sportback 2006 onwards then the parts will cost about £90 -£100. You will then need to get the car re-coded with VCDS.

    Thats not always the case though is it Mike (where you been hiding btw but allot of cars from that age have some of the right parts, but yes you'd need the right tools, coding cable, knowledge how to remove, refit & do the calibrations afterwards plus be able to fault find should there be an issue.

    Not hiding buddy - just a bit disenchanted with the forum since the re-modelling and not interested in 'boy racer' type mods. Just liked to be able to help with parts etc but can't because I can't get ETKA (7.3) to work which pisses me off.

    Hope all well with you and will be PM'ing soon for some help. May even phone !!!!
