I was waiting for parts to arrive, RNS-d install to finish and fit my facelift clocks (A small project).
Now that its all done I can start this project and since its winter it seems like the best project to do during the winter.
Thanks to Tom_B for the Trip Tronic steering wheel.
Thanks to @udiA3 for the MFSW from his A6 C5 breaker.
This all the bits I need/want from the MWFS.
All of that needs to go in to this.............maybe.
I'm thinking of putting the buttons here.
The airbag will need to cut to sink the buttons. On the MFSW will there is brackets that they screw in to. Transferring these over might be a bit of a pain and take up more room, so I'm thinking of bonding them to the airbag. I don't think that's affected when the air bag goes off, so it should be fine.
Trying to the fit the button control module (I think that's what it is called. I'll find out later.) in side the wheel will be hard and I don't think it will be needed. If I can find the slip ring with the most pins (I need 12 I think) I should be able to relocate the module to the dash but if I can't find a slip ring that has 12 pins I will need to rethink this a little bit.
I got the radio only relay that came with the MFSW and if I remember correctly I should be fine for now to just control the stereo but future ideas will require the Can-bus unit but I need to double check that.
The future MFTTSW is blue and I'm not having that. I need to redye the leather and plasti dip the airbag. I think that's the best way but that's something else i can look in to.
That's it for now.
I'll have a play with week and let you know how I get one.
