    Hi guys,

    I want to replace this for a new one as its showing faulty on vag com and cleaning the optical sensors hasn't solved it.

    The part number for the one on my car is 1JO 959 654Q

    I have seen a few for sale which have an identical part number except for the last letter:

    1J0 959 654 AC
    1J0 959 654 AG
    1J0 959 654 AP

    Will any of these fit my car?

    I understand the steering angle will need re-calibrating but will there be any issues fitting the above as the part/connectors look exactly the same as mine.

    Thanks in advance

    Never mind, fitted the one with a AC part number intead of my Q and it works as it should.

    Q is for a multi function steering wheel which mine doesnt have so it was no issue fitting one without the multi function wiring.
