MFSW confirming options

Post by totty79 »

Could anyone confirm if the following is correct please.

MFSW with cruise control buttons cannot be used on a facelift caddy without an aftermarket SWCM.
You can fit a MK 5 MFSW along with the matching airbag.
The MFSW can come from most other VWs, but not a Passat.
If retaining original airbag a new airbag wiring harness is required.

Passat CC MSFW (without Cruise Control) can be used though, with the correct SWCM.
Both in the Facelift (not sure which module version) and Pre-Facelift (Needs module version CH)

Thanks, I thought at least one point would be inaccurate.

In face lift models (to 2015) a polo steering wheel will work without and after market swcm, does require a high line swcm though. To get newer generations of golf wheel space walker can provide a custom swcm. Well this is what I was told by a retro fitting company when I enquired last week.

Yes, and NO
you can install POLO MFSW , but if you have external BT module (3C8 , 7p6 etc .... ) scroll phone via MFSW is impossible, because new MFSW sending different command .
Also CCS will not work from that type of MFSW because ECU not coresponding correct
I made custom module for all cars since 2004 , you keep current SWCM, and BT etc , module convert signals to proper, also CCS can be operate from MFSW

Can this wheel and airbag be used on a 2012 van with a 5KO 953 549 B ?

I prefer it to the MK6 ones I've seen which for me are too sporty for a stock van.Image

Yes, is you're buying the wheel and airbag together they'll be fine paired with that SWCM.

Totty - I’ve had a read through your posts re your mfsw upgrade and your van plans. Did you get a steering wheel with paddles and if so what do you think of them? I’m thinking of this upgrade for my caddy maxi life and am wondering what it offer to life with dsg.
Many thanks
Steve

Yes, mk5 golf. I find the 'box gets it right itself most of the time so I don't use them much.
They're nice to have when you fancy throwing it around on a good B road, or on tight single track roads where the 'box shifts excessively. No different to using manual on the stick really just more entertaining.

Thanks for that - I’m not sure I can justify a couple of hundred+ for the wheel. I may just stick with what I have and get a cruise stalk as that seems the most useful for the cash.
