Changed the airbag and seatbelt/ocupancy connectors so they can be plugged in without adaptors. Also have split the passenger seat loom and rewired seatbelt and ocupancy sensors to match caddy wiring. Image

So, this was done over last couple weekends. Before fitting seats, I've decided to add some soundproofing to the cabin floor first. All trims and carpets out, then layer of dodo hex mat all over the floor and layer of dodo superliner on top of that. Then put the loom in, refitted carpets and trims.

Replaced and coded in heater control panel. Everything is working as it should, seats nice and warm, to say I'm pleased with the result is an understatement Image

Also, coded out the rear wiper, as it's deleted a while ago and also activated the 'needle sweep' :D

It’s when the rev counter & speedo needles self-test sweep to max and back when you turn the key, Audi-style. It’s cool and needs to be done.

If looking at activating it, it’s labelled as “staging”

You would either need VCDS and know how to use it, or something like Carista app with the Bluetooth dongle. Or know somebody with either.
