Hi Primal730,
You should just require a mfsw new or second hand compatible steering wheel control module/combined slip ring and vcds to code it in. Just a thought whilst you are doing this mod, I would get cruise control fitted if you have not got it fitted already at the same time. Well worth it.
Out of interest how much did you pay for your mfsw?

Thanks for info..
I’m old school with my bay window not used to this coding lol..
Paid £250 for wheel
Not got it yet, so that’s why I’m lost in the need to get everything sorted before I try to fit

£250.00 is about right for a decent wheel, I have seen crappy ones going for a lot more. Once you get it and fitted you will not regret it. Such a good mod to the interior.

I got a mate with a garage that does VAG & can code so it’s just getting all the parts first B4 I dump parts on his desk & say “fit them” lol

Sorry to jump on your post but I have a similar question......you beat me to it
Is possible to fit a steering wheel that has cruise control button on it as opposed to fitting a stalk
