    Hi Everyone

    Hope you're all well!

    I need some help. I am trying to source a part and am having huge difficulty. My warranty company will not cover the repair therefore I need to source the part myself and then my local garage will do the work for me.

    The part number is 1K0998455. Which is a double fan assembly unit thingy (words of the garage!). I have tried all the online parts websites etc and they are all saying that you only get genuine Audi or VW parts which needs to be from a dealer - which is really expensive.

    Does anyone know anywhere else I can get the part from? Genuine ideally.

    Basically my car has come up with this error:

    18354 Control Module 1 for coolant fan Defective P1946 No signal / No communication intermittent

    So we think by getting that part, the problem will be resolved.

    Any help will be muchly appreciated!! :)

    I emailed them this morning, just waiting for a response.
    Others such as 247 parts, parts gateway etc cannot get it? They said they I need to go to a dealer.

    Could that error message mean the fuse has gone then? The car sounds like its a plane about to take off!
