    In your 1998 Passat, the locking functions are handled by the CCM (46-Central Convenience Module). This module is located in a plastic box under the carpeting in front of the drivers seat (left front seat).

    I'm guessing the 17-Instrurments module is part of the gauge cluster itself.

    How easy is it to access the wiring to this unit ?
    When you say gauge cluster do you mean the dials themself ?

    I need to access the wiring that feeds both of these to try and repair the wiring (switchable live) which is damaged in my passat.

    Here's a thread about pulling the CCM and repairing the wiring harness (pictures too).
    CCM Help Needed! Clicking sound!

    By Gauge Cluster, I do mean the dials.
