So basically I have a blown BCM (body control module) which I believe is also referred to as the CECM (Central Electronics Control Module).
I am looking to get a new one whatever the source may be. The dealer wants like $400, AliExpress is $150 (http://www.aliexpress.com/store/prod...512357163.html), and I can assume finding one in a junk/salvage yard would be cheapest (but don't know any yards with MKVIs at the moment. If anyone is northern NJ and knows a junkyard with MKVIs currently, please let me know!
So 1 question is where to get it cheapest.
Second question: My part # is 1K0 937 087 G. For example, the part # on the AliExpress link is 1K0 937 087 Q. What will getting a different revision letter change for me. Will it make swapping it in a problem?
Third: To swap the module, does anyone have a procedure I should follow. I assume the new one will need programming via VAGCOM and potential problems could arise if I don't program it correctly. What's the safest way to do this swap? Disconnect battery at all? Program with key on but engine off? Anything on the installation/programming would help.
