Yes must admit I would also like the audio controls as i have a car kit which is sited quite close to the volume button so this would be very useful, hopefully somebody in the know will answer later I've thought about this as well - it looks like the two 'corner' bits might pop off so you can replace them with ones that have buttons (I thought about trying to prise mine off tosee but decided better of it !)
I've like the audio controls on mine .....
Yes bound to be some wiring involved my initial question should have been more specific really, probably worth a visit to the dealers to see what parts are involved but then again I'm not likely to get much sense out of them am I I would assume there's wires attached to the back of the plastic bit so it's not just a case of pull them off and stick new ones on.. ?
YOu can buy the 2 control unit either side and the control module in above the GTI badge... As i said earlier, you will also need a different cambus module and slip ring to support the extra controls. And its very lightly you need a differernt airbag. I am trying to work that part at the moment... theres differernt airbag part number for the MFS and non-MFS wheels..Now thats the photos we needed to answer the question - I said earlier that I felt my 'corner bits' could be prised off, but I didn't to try incase I broke it - good job I didn't as they are clearly screwed on.
What we need to do is pop off the centre panel of the wheel, remove the retaining screw for the corner bits, aquire the new corner bits with audio controls and wiring (hmmm, easier said than done ! - VW part number anyone ?), replace all , jobs a good-un
OK, so I like to make things sound easier than they are !!!, but it cant be far off that can it ? I mean, when I brought the car I could have spec'ed the MFS - its just a different wheel, so therefore the wiring behing the wheel and into the radio is already there ... right .... ?
Anyway, I'm sure its all academic as I very much doubt VW will sell just the corner bits - its a whole new wheel or nothing at all !
Bazi am looking to upgrade to a gti s/wheel. should i just go for the standard one or try to get the multifunction?
also will the multifunction give me added features such as setting the limiter or changing some settings or even changing tracks on a cd??
foxy could you get us a total price of changeover..
- multifunction control module
- airbag(if required)
Wrong mate, they can be prised off. I did so with my car as I wanted to have those bits replaced due to them peeling. VW however have decided to replace the entire steering wheel under warranty...Now thats the photos we needed to answer the question - I said earlier that I felt my 'corner bits' could be prised off, but I didn't to try incase I broke it - good job I didn't as they are clearly screwed on.
Did you order the car with the MFSW or you just saying VW had MFSW as an option for the 2006 spec cars?Volkswagen do indeed sell just the MF buttons. I saw the parts picture at the dealer, and they come with a length of wiring attached, possibly the ribbon wiring seen in the above pictures. I have a post on this in the general MK5 forum, probably misplaced. I want also to install only the MF buttons, not just the whole steering wheel. Can any one tell me how to remove the steering wheel cover, and also the airbag to get access to the wiring and to remove the blank covers to replace them with the MF buttons?
Does anybody have a wiring diagram showing the parts required? Someone told me that you only need to plug in the MF buttons, you don't need a new airbag or any control units providing you have the three spoke steering wheel. My car is a 2006 se model and had the MFSW as an option, therefore I would have thought it would be prewired for the buttons.
Can anyone offer some more information on this, please...... Seems like many of us could fancy the idea of MFSW.
