Yeah good call - thing is none of the Golfs sold here (Argentina) come with ACC or Front Assist. So if I need any body part, I must get it abroad, which could be a pain with customs. I thought that maybe I'd be able to carve through the back of the logo in the grill and make room for the radar and fit it like it would in a mk7.5 w/acc grill.

Oh, I think you're going to end buying parts either way. I would lean to ordering the parts required to mount the radar properly, just so it's in the right position.

I had an incident with a small deer and it smashed the front end including the radar sensor, ripping the whole plug out of the sensor making it useless. The number on the sensor I removed was 5Q0907541G but with speaking to the dealers using my reg number they (2 of them) say my car should use the letter J at the end. Finding it really difficult to find one of these, is it possible that I could use any other sensor. Maybe a G again. If another one can be used what is the procedure in making it work or will this be a major problem.

I think I have a 5Q0907541G in my garage that you can have for price of shipping. PM your address and I'll get a FedEx quote... although I see you're in Nottingham so it may not be worth it. Wherever you get one from you'll have to get component protection removed once installed.

Has anyone gotten ACC coded into the MK7.5 Rabbit? I bought the steering wheel buttons but not sure if I need to make any other modifications before getting ACC added.

I was going to purchase the buttons and then have the car coded, but life and work have both taken up the majority of any free time left :rolleyes:

Following your progress (AKA: living voraciously thought you) until I can devote time to this retrofit.

I’m seconding this. Is it true that the MK7.5 with front assist just need the buttons and coding?!

I was in the same boat but finally pushed forward with the project and finally got it done.

I got ACC coded in the past weekend and it was quite easy although a long process. I think it took about 2.5 hours from start to finish but keep in mind that it was being done remotely (w/ vagretrofit) so there may have been some bandwidth limitations of some sort for coding it.

As I have speculated, it is as simple as just getting the correct steering wheel buttons and coding (with a purchase of a VAS 5054a***). For me personally, I put the car on the charger since I didn't feel comfortable leaving the car ignition on for a couple of hours while being remotely flashed. Didn't want to risk any sort of bricking if the car battery suddenly died. One thing to be sure of when buying a VAS 5054a is that it has an OKI chip. I purchased this one https://www.ebay.com/itm/303993209661?ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT&_trksid=p2060353.m2749.l2649


I replaced the buttons before coding the ACC in. You will see an EPC light go on when driving with the new buttons before coding. It's harmless so don't worry too much about it. Let me know if you have any questions, I'm happy to answer them to provide clarity.

Hello.
I have a GTD 2016 and does anyone know how to activate cruise control? I bought the original keys and installed them on the steering wheel, but I can't code because it needs some kind of online coding.

Hi, I have a similar problem accept my sensor was stolen. I dont know what my original sensor was but I have been told by VW my sensor was 5Q0907541J. These are not the easiest to get hold off. Does anyone know if I can change my sensor for any of the other variants of the sensor with different letters? Also would I have to have protection removed (I am presuming calibration would also be needed). Thanks for any help
