2006 Volkswagen Passat 2.0 Turbo GDI test mule

Driver side front wheel bearing or axle is not well, looks like sunroof has leaked, most lights on the dash are on - but @abricosvw says it sounds healthy so we start GDI project :)

2006 2.0T VAG engine not sure what is the code.

Horizontal mounted, that looks just like my A3. Let me know how easy / hard it is to get to the ECU.

I can get you that info if you have more info what car it is

At Audi it's usually found here:

Both A3 and A4 are under the windshield wipers. Quit hard to reach for me. The wiper bars don't want to remove, as well I expect the harness pigtail is to short to allow me to relocate it. If I spend a couple hours digging it out from under the wipers, I'll have to spend a couple hours putting it right back where I got it from. It would be good if I had an extension cable or similar which allowed it to be relocated to a more easily accessible location. I need to drive this as it's my daily driver.
