    I believe this is the older 'none preferred' stalk - it is said to be counter intuitive to use, but I have this one and find it perfectly acceptable (but I have never used the latter stalk)

    A link to where you bought it would be appreciated, and the price please

    Cheers,

    It was bought from Cumcartec from Germany. Google it, comes up straight away.
    Price was €52+€10 shipping to my brother in Italy as they don't ship to Cyprus.
    They have more interesting stuff.

    Kufatec sell a similar kit and 'bare' harness if you already have the cruise stalk - https://www.kufatec.co.uk/shop/en/audi/a2/a2-8z

    Update,
    Today my pin removal tool set from China has arrived, so I went on to connect the 4 wires to the 81 pin connector of the ECU. My 2001 tdi had wires installed in positions 14,44,45 and 46 that were to be used by CC stalk. Following advice from timmus, these had to be removed, but I was cautious not to cause any damage to the connector itself while doing it.

    Well, it was a struggle, but I managed after 90 minutes of blood, sweat and FEARS. It took me a long time to discover the big connector can be dismantled what makes the work possible.

    I won't go into details as I believe (after seeing what it takes) it should only be done by professionals, me not being one of them, I wouldn't want to give an advice here as it's safety related and I might/will get something wrong. If I lived in UK, timmus would be my obvious choice, over here, you must be brave to let someone do it for you and I'm not that brave.

    Regards,
    Boris

    Now, all the hardware is in place, tomorrow I will enable and test it in VCDS and will report.

    For anyone interested it's possible to make a terminal release tool that works fine - http://www.a2oc.net/forum/showthread...415#post234415

    Found the retrofit quite straightforward myself. Not trying to be a smartass, but just to "counterweight" so others does not get too scared doing the retrofit themself.

    I got the pins removed from the ECU socket easily by using small flat screwdriver. There is also very limited programming involved; basically just to tick off cruisecontroll enabled.

    On youtube there is also a video of one doing the retrofit for a 1.2TDI.

    And finally a working Cruise Control. Very happy now.
    I could not enable with my HEX-NET, but when old laptop appeared,
    it was so simple.

    I want to thank you all for your help and advice, it is much appreciated.


    Regards,
    Boris
