    A5 heated seats to A3 HVAC using Kufatec loom?

    I did research but info is scattered. I now know exactly what the four leads need in terms of gauge and function.... I registered for erwin to get the schematics of the back of the hvac unit for when I have some time. Where did you source the parts of I can ask. (mostly the plugs I would...

    A5 heated seats to A3 HVAC using Kufatec loom?

    Howdy! I recently replaced my seats with A5 leather & heated seats. In all honesty I didn't even knew I was getting heated ones until I saw the plugs. I thought I was not gonna bother with them but with the winter coming and again some encouragement here I got tempted... I found the hvac unit...

    CV outer boot clamping tool and torque settings

    I've done it a few times... Not sure I understand the question. You mean torque for the clamp? Never heard or seen that. You do need a torque wrench for the cv nut and the wishbone nuts and the settings depend on your setup. There are two cv nuts (hex or 12 point IIRC) bot requiring different...

    Thank you! Happy day!

    Thanks for the extra encouragement! Does the Kufatec work connecting the A5 seats (green plug - pic attached) to the a3 HVAC unit?

    Did you take any pics? I am pretty sure my rear speakers are shy so I'd have to take your route. All working good now?

    Following all the tips and encouragement of the forum today I retrofitted the cruise control and upgraded to A5 leather seat that are a world apart in comfort without braking a single piece of plastic! Went for a spin, no light in the dash no errors all working! Yeepee The seats are heated...

    The problem is that the lock/unlock operates all 4 doors at once and the bonnet also triggers the alarm but is sorted now

    I am almost done! :) Done the passenger side. all good no lights on the dash all working. The airbag I re-soldered but for the other loom I replaced the whole cable up to where it is attached at the bottom of the seat where it is in fact the same exact connector. I trusted that if the use the...

    Another retrofit seats thread

    I think I scored a set with heating which I am not sure I will bother with for now. With the black one you did the same? Splice and solder? (I think is the the ocuppanvy sensor and seat belt if I got that right) And did you had to cut that black pin?

    Temporary disable the alarm??

    Hi, I am hoping to retrofit the CC stalk and the front seats of an A5. Instructions call for unplugging the battery for 30 mins to avoid accidental deployment of the airbags. When I do the alarm goes off and I am working on the kurb and would like to disconnect the battery and leave the...

    Are you up to debate on the sitting comfort scale of the 8p?

    Thanks! I don't feel alone then! Rolling down the window feels like an adventure too. Do the A5 seats bolt straight on? Any other VAG seats that end improving the 8p? Mine has no electronics... Presumably the airbag plugs and seatbelt sensors if that.

    Are you up to debate on the sitting comfort scale of the 8p?

    As the title say... I am finding my ways around the 8p. I keep finding it too small for me compared to the other cars I had on the past including a Merc a140 mk1. I am pretty average size I would say (5.11/80klg) and I find it small to come in an out, to relax my legs etc.. Particularly the...

    Adding a transponder with VAG tacho?

    Hi, The second key on my a3 is not recognised by the dash. Does anyone know which version of VAG Tacho will allow me to add a new transponder and how to tell which transponder would that be? (2005 Sportback 1.6 115 FSI)

    Another head unit post 2006 A3 8P

    Before getting the A3 I installed an OEM newer VW unit on my Touran and that was one of my biggest fears as they are countless reports of a flat battery related with CAN adaptations of head units. Fingers crossed is not your case

    Another head unit post 2006 A3 8P

    I got that same feeling with mine but I guess I did not spent enough time with The oem to tell them apart. I only needed 3 clicks to the rear to balance it out. Non-bose on my case
