It is LHD .. the fuses are on the other side of the gear stick. Could it be by them or further over, below the air bag ? I guess I'll have to look there.
Naively I did not think it would be that relevent to this thread..but I will change my profile.Probably somewhere below the glove box, although to be honest it could be anywhere, I don't think you've ever said it's LHD & your profile offers no clue as it's blank.
Ahh.. (but it was easy to misinterpret) ...Repair wires aren't that expensive from TPS.
And 1 repair wire has 2 ends on it you know
Mmmmm.......think I might just stay with my bog-standard wheel
I'm sure they will know which repair wires you need if you ask them, they are normally ok at the end of the day it's their job to sell you stuffTPS are OEM parts suppliers & surely will want part numbers or will want to know what terminals & mm2 of wire I need.. no ?
Where did you get your wires from ?
I am off to Machinemart tomorrow. I hope to improve my wire soldering skills before going at my wiring loom. I had 3 irons not so long ago but I couldn't get enough heat into the wire to make the solder run. I will look for cloth tape, I don't like insulation tape for long term use - it eventually comes away leaving sticky **** all over.Yeah the 'repair' wires are crazy expensive - especially as some need to be spliced and extended! I'd solder wherever possible but if not then crimped connectors would also work.
Even just a cheap soldering iron is worth investing in - I used cloth wiring loom tape to keep everything looking factory, but insulating tape will be just as good.
You star ! That is very good of you do dig that out for me. I am very grateful. TPS are just round the corner from me.. but they are a trade counter only. But I'll try VW commercial.I'm sure they will know which repair wires you need if you ask them, they are normally ok at the end of the day it's their job to sell you stuff
I got mine from teeside VW on ebay, bought the cruise control kit, just dug out the invoice they were £10 , thats for 3 x 009E
searching on ebay i'm assuming it means "000 979 009E" as there are a whole load of other repair wires that all have the same start of the part number, only the end 4 digits change.

or you could buy 10 of the ends only for less

i'm sure it'll be worth it in the end!
anybody know if it's possible to get them wheels with dsg paddles?This is the type I fitted to my 2013 Highline. With the addition of the two wires it worked out of the box no coding required. I didn't pay £295 for it though, more like £225 from memory.
