Had the same thing with mine when purchased in 2016. Same symptoms along with a fault code for "alarm siren - intermittent signal" or something along those lines, too. A new siren + half hour labour at my garage sorted it.

Sorry to jump in!, I have the same problem and wondering if any 'coding / resetting' via vag-com would be needed after swapping
the siren? and will any fit even though the end of the part number has different letters?,

Thank You, Emm's

It's just a speaker with a battery inside it, so shouldn't need any coding.  So long as the xxx xxx xxx number matches, the revision suffix letter at the end doesn't matter.  The newer, the better usually.
