    I ended up moving all of the car specific examples and details to: G85 Steering Angle Sensor locations in Golf-based cars

    Dana: Not sure if you are aware (likely you are), the G85 sensor on a mk7 Golf (5AU) is physically inside the steering rack. Alas, "the steering angle sender - G85- cannot be renewed separately." (according to VW)

    PS: I think the need to replace the entire steering rack for a G85 fault on the later model Golf is called "progress"!

    Hopefully, they will come up with a different approach as these cars age. It's happened before with other components.

    Hi Don, yeah they started that in 2009 on the last of the Mk5 chassis cars here. I'm working on a new thread that's mostly Mk5 and 6 but I may generalize the MQB platform at the very end of it.

    RHD Passat 3C uses 1K0(Gen3 ZF rack opposed to LHD with APA rack) and integrated G85 in rack.
    That is the reason ETKA(and perhaps PL24) guide to read the part nr diagnosticly. On Passat the slip ring is either AS or AR depending on integration of G85.

    Thanks! I encountered this today with an incorrectly coded RoW 2013 Passat wagon TDI and 50% of the good baseline scans were 1K racks where the other 50% were 5N racks. I'll use your feedback and RoW scan data to see if I can improve that area.

    RHD scan example with identical #16 coding 198A250000 and EPS_ZFLS Kl. 197: E?ID=149248
    The broken RHD wagon: E?ID=398941
