Doubt about the parking control unit position

Hi,
I am retrofitting the original PDC and I have a question. What is the position of the 8Z0919283A control unit on units that come from the factory with PDC? I know that it is on the right side of the boot where there are two small holes for the N10412804 screws, but I am left wondering if the ECU connectors are towards the bottom or towards the top.

Thanks a lot in advance.

Hi Miguel,

The PDC module is mounted on the left-hand side of the boot, with its connectors pointing downwards.

Cheers,

Tom

Thank you very much Timmus for you fast response. Yes, I wanted to said on the left side sorry. Thank you for clarifying the question of where the connectors are pointing.

Kind regards,

Miguel.

Where in the boot is this? Have taken out the false floor, spare wheel and looked around the battery area... still can’t see this though

In the left side of the boot, just between the wheel arch and tail light. It's held in place by two screws.

Hello,

I have to access the PDC unit too, what is the way to remove the left boot trim? I've seen no screws not even in the false floor rail.

cheers

There is a very good video somewhere which I followed, can’t seem to find it but will keep searching. Takes about 30 mins to get it out
