Parts Required There are several parts you need for this: Module - the A6 part number is 4G0907441 but you can use a module from A8 - 4h0907441 - whatever you find cheaper from eBay, or at least that's what I did.Camera - camera number is 7P6827566 but you can get a cheap China clone which is actually better than the original one.
