    I collected this from the dealers at the weekend and had a bash at fitting it
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    so no cruise
    [​IMG]

    1st
    disconnect the battery then
    put steering wheel to these positions and remove the 2 grommets at the back reviling 2 torx screws undo them and it removes the air bag
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Unclip wires from the back
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Undo the steering bolt that holds the wheel on make sure the steering wheel is straight and take the keys out of the ignition to lock the steering. The steering will be marked as can see from picture so just in case you forget where it goes
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Then you need undo two torx screws holding the cowling on then the two Allen screws too
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    then remove the cowling
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    This is where it locates
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Unclip the plug and the 3 clips then the squib comes forward be careful not to move this keep it how it it
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    Then pull the stalk forwards and clip in the cruise control switch then clip it back on the colume

    Then redo the process and build it back up
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    There we go cruise fitted
    [​IMG]


    No for coding set up your vagcom
    [​IMG]


    Select engine then coding
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    you need to type the number in then do it
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    Then go to the main screen and select steering wheel then coding
    [​IMG]


    then change the 4th digit to 4
    [​IMG]


    Then to do the last thing is to run a vehicle scan and clear all dtcs stored the last part of the coding is lock the steering wheel to the left then all the way to the right centralise it then drive straight for 200 yards


    then I checked if it worked
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]




    so that is what I did I couldn't find a guide so I thought I'd make my own let me know if its ok and helped you

    Great one mate, (should be a sticky) going to do mine soon. Guide will be very helpful.
    Hoping you, Nigel or anyone can help:
    Fitting mfsw as well,
    Got a secondhand squib and steering module
    Airbag cable
    Mfsw
    Cruise and dis stalk

    Assume I have to code the abs and steering? How do i work the login for the abs?
    Also did you torque the steering wheel bolt? (Don't have a torque wrench at the mo)

    Was planning on fitting Sunday before we go on holiday next week so didn't want to do it and get stuck with the coding.


    Thanks guys

    Well done mate. Never seen anyone do it by leaving the airbag loom plugged into the slipring but either way, good job ;)

    Nice write up. Inspired me to get around and fit cruise into mine :)

    When removing the airbag I just unclipped the purple/yellow connector and left the airbag connected to the steering wheel. Hope there's no reason I shouldn't have done that!

    I struggled to unclip the connector on the slip ring so ended up removing the driver's footwell trim to get at it from behind.

    Also forgot to buy the replacement lower cowling - so ended up bodging the existing one with a hole saw...

    ImageUploadedByTapatalk1371156171.381265.jpg

    It's not terrible but might need sorting at some point!

    BTW - Anyone know if the B7 MFSW is deeper than the B6 sport (3 spoke)? I installed cruise on my old B6 a while back, and am pretty sure I had all the same tools to hand this time, but when I came to remove the MFSW on my B7 this evening my socket wouldn't reach so I had to put the airbag back on and go and buy an extension arm for my wrench...

    Great write up, something I have been thinking about having fitted.
    What was the total cost of the parts?

    I'm working from memory here, so not exact prices as I dont have them to hand - but think the cruise kit (new from an audi dealer on ebay) came in at about £65, including the cowling.

    If you're doing DIS too, you can pick up a second hand stalk - cant remember how much I paid for mine, £30ish? One from a B6 will work, but remember avant / saloon are different stalks.

    Good wee write up though mate!

    When we coded mine though, I dont remember having to do the lock to lock and driving bit..... is that always needed? Everything works as i'd expect....

    I don't think so - I didn't do it either. I did it after changing the steering column module on my B6 though - I had ABS errors after that install and the steering sensor alignment was given in a guide I had found online for coding the new module. But on my B7 I didn't have to change the module and so got no ABS errors so didn't bother.

    The ABS warning light came on the dash though (I think just cos I'd disconnected the battery) but that goes out as soon as you drive the car....

    Hi All, ok tried fitting cruise and a new dis stalk today, got the wheel off and airbag no problem . Fitted the new dis stalk but when I came to fitting the cruise stalk I could not get it to fit , can't see how the indicator stalk pulls forward enough to get the cruise to slot in . Dis on display still only shows miles to empty so looks like that gotta be activated too.
    Steering wheel now re fitted road tested as a s light was on but went off after a mile or so but airbag light now on 😒

    Anyone give me more detail please on how the cruise stalk exactly fits in and how I can get the wiper stalk forwards enough to get the cruise to slot in ?

    Thanks,

    Si

    Gentlemen ,

    I bought the my A4 last july ,there is a cruise control stalk installed but I have fiddled with it and nothing happens from my tinkering .

    Is there anyway to test the cruise control to see if there is a fault somewhere?

    If your cruise is not working I would bet on a failed clutch or brake light switch.

    then change the 4th digit to 4
    [​IMG]


    I have a query regards this step... I was messing around with vcds to see if I have the côrrect board to accept cruise, I have the multi function steering with telephone controls but the part where it says to change to 4, the picture shows it's set to 1, board installed, but mine is set to 0, board and cruise not installed..would that mean mine isn't suitable?
