It’s about a meter short is what I found. You probably want a 1.5m just to be sure and give you slack

In the guide it mentions the CECM wire connection if you have a Climatic heater control do you not need the below CECM connection as in the guide it is only mentioned under climatronic heater controls and not for climatic...

Second question is for the fuse box section would you find spare terminals that are not in use on the fuse board and then check the voltage etc  and use those or piggy back off existing required fuse ratings ??
I haven't as yet checked if there are any spares in the fuse box area...

I don’t think the connection differs whether it’s climatic or climatronic but I could be wrong. Can try looking on eBay for pictures of the back to see if they differ.

As for the fuse box - I used empty slots and put new fuses in (so make sure you have spares ready as I ended up having to take out others to test and it was annoying especially as I ended up blowing a couple)

How much extra was it to have kufatec custom make the extension?

Awaiting a response from Kufatec as of yesterday..I hope the same price


So I take it that the  connection below is compulsory to CECM whether you have Cimatronic or Climatic ?
Can anyone comment on this ? In the guide there are dashes against the Climatic option with or without AC...

Kufatec have responded saying they will not extend the cabling and modifications have been done already. (they haven't tested on a RHD vehicle though). Kufatec support also stated that if the wires are short then I should let them know which wire and by how much and they will send the relevant extension out !! I have ordered a set in any case. They also advised if I needed any support to query with Richter Sport their reseller in the UK. I don't know how helpful they will be  ??

One query I still have is whether the CECM connection is required. In the guide in the table it only lists the requirement for climatronic.. which I do not...

NoAC/Climatic/Climatronic connections in the back (20pin?) connector are different for heated seats. Have a look at the mk5/mk6 wiring diagrams.  The kufatec instructions do mention this also (climatic vs climatronic).

There should be three 'small' wires to be plugged in the rear control unit; used for the heater controls and thermometer signal for each seat. IIRC, the wires should be black/blue and white/blue.

Kufatec refused to extend the cabling saying this had already been done previously.. They did say if extension was required to let them know which cable and how much needed extending and they would send the cable out.. How convenient !! not ...
