    Hi,


    Does this mean you are for the firmware update as a cheap way for VAG to address the electronics issues or are you against the actual firmware update and is it not enough to repair cars with this problem within range of production?


    No, I am not a fan of the firmware update, because....

    We have seen a lot of issues with these ABS controllers and when applicable, the firmware update does not seem to really fix a lot of these vehicles, they typically eventually end up needed an new/replacement ABS controller anyway.

    Now, we do not of course see the majority of the vehicles, so I can not be too judgmental and the firmware maybe an acceptable fix in many cases. Personally, I would rather replace the controller with a new unit, than to flash it, based on my experience with the failure rate of the older controllers.



    Puzzling funny right, normally production Vin range's are specified on TSB or campaign such as this no?


    - Right, and yes, sometimes the VINs or a VIN range do get published in the campaigns/recalls or an attachment. In this case, I suspect that there were a few of vehicles that had these exact controllers installed and a VIN range could not narrow it down. I have also seen lists of VINs too, in this case I bet there were too many to print!

    The dealership can use ELSA to view all the applicable recalls and campaigns for a VIN. One could ask the dealership to "see" or print this page. It is not hard and even a service tech has access. They need to select the "Campaigns/Actions" on the right menu, after they have entered the VIN into ELSA. Once they do that a 'popup' will appear and show the details for all the applicable recalls and campaigns. This will show a status, either "OPEN" or "CLOSED" for each service listed, if any.


    Hope this add clarity to my thoughts,

    Ok, closing up here. Thanks again to Jack for the help with the part numbers I needed. I ended up installing a 1K0907375AS that I got off ebay for $50. I was able to bleed it, program it and set the basic settings. Problems solved! Great news to the owner of the car and I didn't even charge her any labor, another win for the people!
    Cheers,
    Noah
