    Well it is a different switch then , and is no good for your car.
    The switch is the coming / leaving home button.

    Coming gome has nothing to do with the auto position on the dial knob, ch/lh is controlled via the seperate button mate, so you need this & you have to wire this in & code it, plus your module 09 (J519) has to support the function, so you need to check the module with vagcom 1st before changing parts then finding cant be done.

    If anyone is selling a standard A3 switch without the chrome piece and without the ch/lh button (basically identical to the pic crypric23 put up but without the ch/lh button) I may be interested.
