    I have MY2009 A3 (8P3), I want to do this retro fit myself.. does anyone have part numbers? I will buy the stalk and upper and lower steering column cowling I guess. I'd like new probably, my interior is in top condition, wouldn't want inferior parts to let it down.

    Cheers

    Nope, radio info gets stored in the car's memory.

    Great guide! Looking at doing this myself on my 2011 3dr, does anyone know where I can get the bottom cowling (hopefully not from audi)? Am I right in thinking that the cowling and the stalk are all I need?

    I got mine from Huntingdon Audi. I gave them a call and they confirmed that I didn't need the control wire.
    It was £109 delivered.

    Followed this guide yesterday... Fitting went very well coding however is being a nightmare.

    After fitting the retrofit parts yesterday, today I went to get it coded. Steering control module coded fine but the engine wouldn't code?

    Few screen shots:
    ** standard coding**
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/28079959/step1.png
    **cruise control selected**
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/28079959/step2.png
    **current vs new coding**
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/28079959/step3.png
    ** FAIL - error message**
    https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/28079959/step4.png

    Looks to be that the equipment number is too high and not in range but this couldn't be altered.

    Anyone able to shed done light on this?

    Thanks

    Did anyone have a view on this? Seems a lot of work to put the cable into here if it just goes to a 3amp fuse? Why can this not go direct to the fuse board?

    So - after stripping the whole thing down - the T12a Pin Layout is WRONG - DO NOT USE this part of the diagram
    The plug is a standard layout 1 to 6 on one row and 7 to 12 on another

    As to the rest - no idea if it is right or wrong

    hi, friends. this guide is great, i have followed it and i was ready in less than hour. i have the 1K0 953 549 AF steering module and the cc is not working correctly as previously stated, but i`m fine with that. maybe i`ll get the 8p0 ecu later to make the cc work as expected, if i found it at good price, my only question is: is it possible to display the set speed on the DIS. i have full dis with board computer (the red one). do i need the new module or a new dash. the car is 06.2005 with 3 spoke steering wheel..

    p.s. sorry if it is double post, i could not find my previous message

    Lee where in Scotland are you?

    Just used this guide/ coding for mine and couldnt get short code to work- luckily long coding tips worked. What did we ever do before tinterweb!

    Awesome guide, picked up a stalk from eBay for £30 delivered, fitted it myself. I stumbled across a thread on another forum (which I can't find again) whereby the guy had cut the lower steering trim to fit the new stalk, looked simple so I gave it a go and....I have to say it looks awesome and was easy too, plus saved myself £45 not having to buy a proper one.
    All the dash warning lights went off about 100yrds down the road and it works!
    It's a 1k0 module ending in AF so works a bit arse backwards but it works, actually looking forward to going back to work (currently on leave) just to put it to full use!
    Thanks again

    Is there a definitive coding guide to follow?

    I have 2009 CR170, parts fitted.

    Thanks

    "If you need the control wire, it goes to pin 13 on steering main black plug, and pin 4 on a blue connector under dash, the instructions say remove the connector but using pin nose pliers i pushed it into the connector in place, simply because i couldn't for the life of me get the connector out as it's in the most akward place and no room for tools really to undo it...

    Big thanks to Sijones :arco:[/QUOTE]"


    HELP: Hi, I've got a 2004 3.2 8p 3dr. Could someone shed some more light on this additional Control wire that needs running in. I saw that it goes from pin 13 to some other blue connector pin 4? I assume it's pin 13 on the black connector that plugs into the steering ECU (mounted under the steering wheel??? please confirm) and goes to the main ECU under the bonnet (Is this the one that requires the wiper motor removal???). Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks to sijones and avus sportback for the brilliant guide that got me through the installation on my 2005 A3 DSG S-line. In addition to this I found a great install video on youtube that includes instructions on fitting the control/repair wire which should hopefully clear things up for a few people. I was lucky to have it already in place and found you can check without any dismantling anything by looking up through the gap for the steering column adjustment lever, you can see the black plug into the back of the steering ecu, and the repair wire is (or isn't) 4th from the right on the top row.



    I took my car to a local garage last night where they did the coding for £20, took a few attempts but I think it was after leaving the ignition off for over 30 seconds that did it.
