    Golf mk4/Passat b5.5 CCM (body comfort) module wiring on bench and connecting to VCDS or VDS PRO

    I wrote a program that can read/write the CCM using a generic KKL cable or older versions of VCDS cables: You just need a laptop that runs Windows 10 and an appropriate cable.

    Additional CCM coding and configurations with VDS Pro

    I have a 2001 Jetta Wagon (former VR6, now ALH) and have not been able to find the auto-window values anywhere, I think because ALH wagons were not available in the US until 2002 and those all got the 1C0 CCM but mine is a 1J0. Today I got it working by "interpolating" the 1J0 Golf and 1C0 wagon...

    Free VDS-Pro / VagTacho Alternative

    Thanks! I already have about 45 clusters myself :eek: and am trying to downsize but I might be interested in a couple for testing if they're not ones that I already have. When you get a chance could you PM me the part numbers of the ones you have?

    Free VDS-Pro / VagTacho Alternative

    No idea if the VAGTacho cable will work but it's worth a shot. It will only work if it shows up in Device Manager as a COM port (e.g COM4). The VAG-COM serial port cable should work if you have a computer with a serial port or buy something like this...

    99.5 Golf Receiver Drier Bolts

    So I'm almost done replacing the compressor, condenser and receiver drier on my 99.5 Golf. I was reading this how-to on Vortex ( ) and it said "Note: The top and bottom bolts are different sizes, so make SURE you label them properly!"...

    Free VDS-Pro / VagTacho Alternative

    So I've been a happy VCDS user since buying my Golf in 2003 (it had 65000 miles on it so it conveniently needed an immediate timing belt replacement, hence needing VCDS - though it was named VAG-COM way back then). However there are things that VCDS doesn't do, such as pulling the SKC from an...

    99.5 AC Compressor Compatibility

    So my Golf is in need of a new AC compressor. It looks like the 99.5 and early 00's require part number 1J0820805 and later ALHs use 1J0820803N. I can get the later model for quite a bit less than the earlier model. Has anyone installed the later model in a 99.5? Is it just the clutch electrical...

    Adjustment after Rear Caliper Replacement

    The parking brake mechanism in one of my rear calipers has frozen up again. I freed and lubed it a few months ago which got me through the rest of the winter but now I'm ready to replace the caliper. (Before you ask, I've already replaced the cables so it's not them) After I install the new...
