Ok, following several requests here's the brief DIY on retrofitting the driver's seat memory panel in the door. This will enable two directly accessible memorized seat positions (not via key fob as discussed many times before).

Note: this DIY is for LHD A5 Coupe equipped with driver's seat memory module J136 (check its presence using VAG-COM beforehand).

Parts required:

8T0 959 769 V10 seat memory panel E97 (LHD driver side) 1 pcs.
8T1 959 527 A7PE seat memory panel surrounding frame (LHD driver side) 1 pcs.
8L0 971 883 connector T8x 1 pcs.
000 979 009 E connector wire 7 pcs.
7L6 868 243 spare door panel clip 3-5 pcs.

If the car doesn't have J136 memory module, it has to be also installed.

Tools required:

VAG 3409 plastic wedge
VAG 3392 panel pliers
torx screwdriver
soldering iron / insulation tape
VAG-COM

I strongly recommend using wedge and pliers, otherwise it's extremely easy to damage the door trim.

Basically, the task is to install the seat memory button panel E97 and connect it to J386 driver's door control module. Perfect instructions on how to do particular steps right may be taken from ELSA shop manual.

The main steps are:

1. Remove door decorative trim using wedge

2. Remove door armrest front/bottom trim using wedge and large flat screwdriver. Disconnect wire from door lock switch E150 (pics 1, 2)

3. Undo five screws holding the door panel with torx screwdriver

4. Unclip and remove door panel using pliers (pic 3). If done carefully most clips may be re-used, otherwise replace with spare ones. Disconnect T32j connector (pic 4) and door lock rod

5. Assemble wire harness connecting E97 to J386:

- 6 complete wires (signal) connect T8x on E97 to T32j on J386. Pins 1-17, 2-19, 3-15, 4-14, 7-7, 8-2

- 1 split wire (illumination) from T8x pins 5 and 6 should be connected to door illumination wires (brown and blue/brown). I've chosen to cut in at E150 (pic 5) connector using soldering iron

6. Connect T8x to E97, install E97 in the door panel (pic 6)

7. Put the door panel and decorative trim back in reverse order

8. Install the new seat memory button panel surrounding frame (don't forget to re-connect the E150 switch)

9. Perform some VAG-COM coding:

[42 – Door Elect, Driver]
[Coding - 07]

[Byte 4]

Bit 1 = 1


[36 – Seat Mem. Drvr]

[Coding - 07]

[Byte 2]
Bit 1 = 1

10. Check the memory function according to car manual. Enjoy!

excellent DIY description.

I have this option ordered from new.
and it surprises me that this memory option only affects the drivers seat.
have not seen a possibility to include the passenger seat in this.

any suggestions ??

Been thinking about that.

The button block and surrounding frame may be taken from RHD version, however I'm not sure if the system can handle TWO memory seats simultaneously.

Honestly, driver's seat was the main target because my wife ocassionally drives the car and it's a PITA to restore the settings without memory buttons later :)

Could 1 or number of you guys do some vcds logs for me please, so I can look at some coding for memory seats, working on a car atm & apart from component protection, need to research some stuff aswell, please PM me if you're able to help & I will provide more info on what I would like if thats ok, thanks.

In China they have the option of memory buttons on both sides of the car believe it or not!! But yes in our cars this would only affect the driver's seat.

You can, however, "synchronise" the passenger seat to the driver's seat position using the seating menu of the MMI.

Which module coding is needed in particular?
Sorry for delay in reply, Adams car was fun to the extreme with lots of surprises for the seat install lol.

I would like please, the long coding & an adaptation controller map for 06, 36, 42, 52, 16, 17, 09, 46 & 5F if thats ok so I can compare some coding.

Ben could you also provide the same info please mate given yours is facelift :)

TIA guys.

Also passenger memory can be fitted afaik, there's a coding option, so I suspect when the module is fitted to the door module & coded it should work, but this may be reliant on a specific door module fro regions that allows such thing, like China, only 1 way to find out, Adam fancy being a guinea pig with existing modules?

Great installation, right in line with what I am hoping to do. I want to install a door module on the right hand (passenger side) of my 2012 A5 so my wife has the same functions as the drivers side. Can any members with RH drive tell us the part number for the door module? A RH drive switch model will curve the right way.
Any ideas and indights would be greatly appreciated. Am very hesitant anbout opoerating on may baby. Would hate to mess it up. I still have to confirm what motors and data bus configuration I have on the Pass. side.

Thanks

For precise advice, would be very beneficial to know the p/n's of your car's passenger seat and door modules (info can be found via VCDS).

Pass. Seat Memory.

Unfortunately my car is in storage for another month with only one side easily accessable. Can't bear to drive it in winter with all the salt they use on the roads here in Ottawa. Next time I go to start it I will take an inspection mirror and see if I can get some part numbers. Seat module should be easy however the door module will be impossible without removing the panels.

No need to disassemble anything. Just get VAG-COM and query corresponding module - among other information you will get the VAG number.

Am stuck there, I don't have a VAGCOM. Have been thinking about it but as a new owner am very uncertain if I would get enough use from it to outweigh the cost. Also rather nervous about taking apart a new car. Took lots of flack about spending this much on a car can't imagine the comments if I broke it.

Cumberlandjames there may be someone who lives close to you willing to do the adaptation in return alcohol/sexual favours.

In VCDS I have Address 43 Door Elect, Driver (J386) which im assuming is the wrong module, may get a price from Audi direct.

Nino,
If I understand it correctly, the J386 module is required for the door, whereas the J136 module controls the seat operation. So you will still need the J386 module.

Tomcat,
I have a J136 drivers mem module (same module number but mine is a right hand drive car) and also a J521 pass seat mem module. Does this mean I could connect the memory seat switches to both sides?

Your VagCom scan should look something like this if you have both modules:

Further to previous, VCDS part no's below. Can anyone help and also advise part no.s for a right hand drive car?

Thanks

In my case the J136 with memory feature had 8T0 959 760 C p/n. Better double-check, yours may not have memory
