I've noticed since I bought my mk7 titanium last week (it's a 58 plate) that the radio remote control buttons on the left side of my steering wheel only appear to work intermittently. The lot of them.

 

The cruise control buttons on the right side are fortunately working as they should.

 

Has anyone come across this before and does anyone have any suggestions as to what might be causing this/how to fix it? It's sadly out of warranty so I suspect a full replacement will be pretty expensive.

Mine did the same when i bought my car. 

 

Source an aftermarket button from ebay or a breakers yard and change it. 

 

Its a simple job!  :)

Thanks, I'll look into that.

Any pointers on how to go about changing them over?

There are 3 torx20/25 screws you need to undo on the back of the steering wheel.

 

Theese 3 screws holds the plastic "V" 

 

When they are out, you simply pull it off.. It can be a litte tricky, but it's doable..  :)

 

After this, it's pretty straight forward.  :)

 

 

 

Edit:

You will also need to dismount your airbag ..  

The battery must be out for 10-20 min before you start working on it...
