I am waiting for a clock spring for 2010 high line with volume and Bluetooth phone controls and paddle shifters. Dealership said it’s under warranty due to recall back in 2018. Currently it’s back ordered and waiting for 4 months with no ETA. No horn no airbag Neither. Has anyone got lucky to find one? I even drove to stases and bought one from autozone but dealership mechanic could not assemble due to not same size even though autozone claims it is. Paid $50 on labour just to find out it doesn’t fit. I am reaching out here has anyone has access to clock spring? Live in Ontario willing to drive and pick up any location at this point. Thanks in advance.

Do you have the part number?

Just looked on eBay and there are over 200 for sale, but without the part number specific to your car you may end up with the wrong one again.

If the dealer has ordered it, get their part number and search the internet for it? As Kickbox said, they are likely to be EOS specific to your VIN, options, and steering wheel. Sometimes these ribbon cables can be temporarily repaired. Their weakness is at each end on their connectors.

Could be worth giving these guys a try.
Says it's for a Passat, but it is the same part number.

The original part number was 5K0953569H which is what you might find used. V.W dropped it at the beginning of 2014 and replaced it with 5K0953569AL which is what your dealer is getting - quite expensive though.

Thanks I will give it a try
They just replied to my email stating that this part is on national back ordered. Not getting lucky with this part. Wonder maybe local part stores in Portugal might have this part since it was built there? North America seems dried out of this part.

There are many posts about V.W clock spring failures, even though it's one of the easiest faults to diagnose. The fact they superceded the part may be a clue and they changed something in the design with the new part number.

The same part is used on Skodas. An Ebay seller in Birmingham UK repairs them for £100 - They just found the correct ribbon cable to use! Although V.W call this a controller, AFIK it does no more than connect the steering wheel switches and airbag wires to the steering control module - no active electronics inside.

Ah, now I see the Chinese are cloning them new. I bought a replacement Chinese stalk with cruise and that looks and works o.k. As long as you source the 'H' or 'AL' I can't see your problem (except at the dealer).

Good point! When I said the clockspring had no electronics, they bolted the controller interface on the end of the assembly. I can see why the firm in UK reconditions them because it's usually the Mylar multi way plastic ribbon that fails, not the controller it attaches to.

Thanks a lot for information.
