How do I get that bl**dy G200 sensor off?!
Am trying to replace my G200 sensor, but I want to get the original off beforehand so that I can see exactly which part number it is I want. So far I think the numbers are:
G200: 1J0 907 651A
Longitudinal sensor (G202?): 1J2 907 637A
Firstly, can anyone confirm those are the correct numbers for my car? X-reg 1999/2000 S3 8L
Secondly, even if I should get the right part, I could not for the life of my get the damn thing off when I tried today. I got the trim under the steering wheel off fine, no worries. Then I could see the brass-y bracket which held both the aforementioned sensors (larger one on top, G200 on the bottom). This is attached to the subframe with one 13mm bolt...however, I really don't see how to get to it from underneath. I eventually tried taking off the trim above the steering wheel but though this is ridiculous and decided to ask to see how everyone else got at that bolt. The bolt head has two pins either side of it meaning you can't get a ratchet spanner on it, but then I couldn't find a way around to get a socket drive on either :S I can post pictures if people want, but hopefully you would have come up against this before :)
