    Update time!

    Thermostat done, was a pain ended up taking the alternator off to get more room, I'm roast my plums off now.

    No luck with radio wiring has continuity and power so is a component fault I suppose unless there are any other ideas? I tried googling seems pretty common but no one seems to know why.

    No luck with cruise control checked all wiring everything is where it should be just will not don't know what else to try.

    All in all pretty much waste of a day as have accomplished very little.

    Any help on the electrical side would be very helpful. Think I'm gonna have to buy vag com....

    dont buy cheapo thermostat, you will be changing again in 6 months.
    Audi cost £30 new with the seal.
    1/4 inch drive and knuckle joint and you wont have to move the alternator.
