My seat belt retractror exploded in a frontal crash before I bought my b5.5 but the seat belt still retracted fine it just sets an airbag code.. IIRC.

Just to follow up and state what I did. May be helpful to somebody. I bought a used clockspring on E-bay. Installed replacement part. DTC's changed. ABS module now needed to be recoded and steering recalibrated. This was done with VCDS. All good.

I am at this point also. How did you recode and re-calibrate this?

Default coding

It is a relatively simple process using Ross-Tech VCDS. There is a video on youtube demonstrating the process. Search youtube for "coding the Bosch 5.3 and 5.7 ABS modules." The video I used was 10 minutes and 17 seconds long to help identify it. It is helpful. You need the brake production code and some other basic information to figure out your login code and recoding code. There are some others, such as calibration 40168, others given in the video. Procedure is to get abs module number, figure out the login number. My car was 09557 for the login number. BHW cars are likely similar with the exception of the third digit which could vary depending on brake production code. Video of A4 was 1LE, as was mine. You then get the soft coding number similar process to login. Mine was 04257. Brake pr code variable also. There are possible workshop and importer codes on the soft coding page, Then you recalibrate.(40168) The dtc's I had were 00778-steering angle sensor-not matched-intermittant and 01044-module incorrectly coded. Erased by procedure. Any further questions feel free to ask and definitely watch the video. It goes step by step. I think it is a good idea to write down all your numbers before you change anything so you can always go back. if necessary. Good luck.

Don't be concerned. Just go step by step. It really is easy. What I did was play/pause the Ross-Tech video as I was doing the procedure. I also watched the video a couple of times first to get a better grasp before I started.
