      I've done a lot of searching and have come up blank with a part number for what I need.

      I purchased a 4-spoke MFSW from vw_nc_dude (thanks!) last week in order to replace my plastic (no buttons) 4-spoke.

      The part I am looking for is the wire/ribbon cable (not sure it would be called a harness) to connect from the buttons to the controller. The button assembly on the left side has a connector for this cable that I presume goes to the controller. Below are pictures stolen from threads to show what wheel I'm talking about. Any help is greatly appreciated.

      Is your airbag a single stage or dual stage? (is there one plug or two on the back of it)

      If it's a single stage the airbag harness P/N is 3C0971584B. Sorry can't help if it's dual stage.

      You can see pictures of one in my F/S thread. It replaces your existing harness and has an extra plug for the buttons

      I'm planning to - I currently have a Clarion NX501 installed, however, I'm thinking of swapping back to my A-Sure navi unit... haven't decided yet. For the former, I have a can-bus adapter and steering wheel adapter (PAC audio) and for the latter, it's all built in.

      I will probably do the swap tonight assuming I can find the 12mm bit needed at the store on my way home - at that time, I can check out the whole dual/single stage situation and go for the right harness from there.

      do you mean a new(er) controller or just with VCDS? I've got the latter covered.

      I'll be sure to keep that in mind - if/when I get there - if that's the case, I'll just bag the idea of using the buttons and enjoy the leather (which is mostly what I wanted anyway )

      Well, I swapped to the new wheel last night - forgot how nice leather was. While I had things apart, I snapped pics of the airbag and the controller - based on above, I guess I have a 2-stage bag which means that's the harness I would be looking for - if anyone can provide a part number as well as some pics, I would greatly appreciate it. All the threads I've read through have been dealing with total system swaps (like 4- to 3-spoke) rather than just what I am looking for here.

      airbag:


      controller:


      In the end, if it's a PITA to get the buttons (as in, need new controller), I'm okay with not actually using them.

      Thanks in advance!

      based on the PN for my controller (3C0 953 549 H), it looks like I am SOL on using the buttons according to this page:

      http://wiki.ross-tech.com/wiki/index...er_3C0-953-549

      reading through that, it shows no MFSW support on the controller... and I'm not dropping a bajillion dollars on a controller just for the buttons

      I have a harness on the way from another user... still stuck at the controller... just too darn much to make it worthwhile. I found one on here for sale for about $30 but it's a mid-line (had to contact Ross-Tech to ask as it wasn't published)...
