    now...
    I need a price and exact part number realisticly for the central convienience module for Fred's car.
    also I can imagine it's going to be a pig to re code everything to a brand new unit so I suspect a second hand unit would be the way forward as it'll most likely be coded to the nines and just tweeking will be required.. plus a lot cheaper! iDEAs on a POSTCARD greatly appreciated ��
    vw technik estepona: Notwithstanding Fred's observations (and my spreadsheet) retro fitting folding mirrors on a mk7 is not an uncommon project and there are lots of forum posts on the web regarding this topic. If successful implementation (using the keyfob) relies on the presence of the high level BCM, it's odd that there isn't more written about this restriction (I think).

    However 23 and 26 refuse the active setting and show error whilst there is no "Fold away after parking" option in the media display
    Fred/vw technik estepona: I'm sorry, but I just couldn't let this matter rest! Fortunately my mk7 also has a mid level BCM (see section of auto-scan below)
    Code:

    Address 09: Cent. Elect. (J519)       Labels: 5Q0-937-08X-MV1.clb
       Part No SW: 5Q0 937 084 N    HW: 5Q0 937 084 N
       Component: BCM MQBAB M   H14 0106  
       Serial number: 00011234701612

    So if the hypothesis about needing a high level BCM to change the settings on (23) and (26) is correct, then I should get the same results as Fred when I try to alter these adaptation channels. Guess what happened?





    So- I suspect that the mid level BCM on Fred's car isn't the culprit! Question is: why can't Fred alter the settings on his BCM? Perhaps a look at the Codinglog.txt file might be illuminating (although if changes were made to the BCM by both Fred and vw technik, making sense of the file could get tricky)

    Thanks Don

    I've just woke up 5:25 am because this is on my mind and I have been having similar thoughts to you.Particularly the availability of retrofits and the number of people who have done it plus companies offering this service.

    When you access this module do you have to enter any security access codes?

    Fred: As per the instructions in your previous post (I've bolded the pertinent instruction)

    [10] Adaptation, choose from the drop down channel
    [23] - Access control 2 - Funk Spiegelanklappen change to "active", click do it
    [26] - Access control 2 - Menuesteuerung Funkspiegelanklappen change to “active”
    [24] - Access control 2 - Funk Spiegelanklappung Modus change to “by look command via remote control key”
    So, the answer is Yes - the magic number 31347 MUST be entered prior to accessing adaptation 10

    I will have to check with vw technik estepona: but I think we may have missed out this step as I believe we were given access without it.

    Maybe that is why it will not accept new coding?

    UPDATE

    Today I found time to return to Estepona where we went through the programming again checking out the door modules and the BCM and now everything is functioning OK

    So thanks for all the inputs with particular thanks to DV52

    hello to all experts,
    I need your help.
    I have a golf 7 gti performance end of 2013 and I have the mirror pack.
    Unfortunately, the first golf 7 produced has the mirror pack that works this way:

    -closing mirrors by auto locking with remote control
    -automatic opening only when power is switched on

    I would also like to have the mirror of the mirrors with the key ... but I have never succeeded since the various settings checked with the vag are correct.

    Does anyone have any more information ???

    This depends on the door ECUs and the only solution is swapping them to another model year.

    Are you sure?

    Could it depend on the software version of the Discover Pro?
