    Hi guys just wondering of anyone has got the code for the airbag of the 2012 rs5 steering wheel. I e got an a1 185 and I'm looking to put the flat bottom rs5 wheel in it but do a straight swap with the airbag as it looks an identical fit. All help is greatly appreciated

    Best regards

    Ian

    Ok on an A3 8P I had to custom wire the airbag loom, so you may need the same if airbag connections arent the same as yours.

    Show me your current wheel & airbag, assume you've taken yours of already to look at, so underside of airbag would be good.

    I haven't taken mine off because I don't know how to buy I've seen one off the wheel however I didn't think of looking at finding the code! *doh!* I've got the code for the 2012 a1 steering wheel airbag which I assume is the same?!

    I forgot to mention mine doesn't have the paddles which is why I want the steering wheel, can they be coded or made useable in any way, I hope so!

    Yes can be coded for paddles to work, as long s its stronic & not manual lol.

    Looks like same airbag to me, subject to confirmation on fitting, but the 2 share "some" codes.

    Do you need it fitting for you?

    Lol, I know this topic is dead and burried, but I'd like to know if eventually the A1 airbag did fit to the RS5 steering wheel?

    Thanks
