    Nope quite an easy job fella,
    You need the stalk from audi, or ebay. I picked up cruise control and dis stalk for 45 quid posted.
    Also you need vagcom.
    Airbag off, steering wheel off, slipring off, stalk off, new stalk on, slip ring on, steering wheel on, airbag on. Then code.

    I'm pretty new to it all, but make sure your swcm supports dis, do you have vagcom? Make sure you buy one that is for saloon, or avant if needed.

    Its the collumn control module, i'm sure if you're near someone who has vagcom they'd help.

    Trying to remember how you do it, i tihnk if you scan the steering wheel - 16 module, it should tell you.
