    Part numbers wrong, its 8R0857511 & comes up as auto anti dazzle for the 8P range yes.

    You need an installer for the system or doing yourself mate?

    Ok thanks mate. Ill have to check the number on the mirror. Probably going to fit it myself. Got a new screen being fitted next week because of a massive stone chip so thought I may aswell go for it.

    Hi I've started fitting the auto light wipers. I have connected the kufatec loom to ce plug b pin 33 (Lin bus loom) and plug c pin 28 (backup signal) and lgnition plus and steady plus to the fuse board. Connected the gnd. Activated in vcds (rls) now the head light switch has an extra plug on the old one that I don't no where go's (little plug with one red and black wire). my lights are always on and get an error say auto lights wiper deactive.

    You need to purchase the auto version that is for your year/car as that extra connection was added to newer cars.

    If using a kufatec loom then pray its fully wired properly, but as I dont know what they have supplied I wouldnt like to speculate.

    You need the correct switch 1st before condemning any wiring.
