I have a brand new cowelling with switch and control unit. In dark grey / black & never fitted Bought for mine but the problem was in fact a trapped cable behind the column. let me know if you want it. Yours for 40 + postage which is less than half what I paid from Audi. Saves me experiencing the traumas of Ebay!

The adjustment should now be learned.
