Well I used the link for the Chinese senors - I bought 2.I hope these pics help to explain what I was meaning.
When putting the sensor back in put wire in first from the end nearest where the blank part was.
Prise small screw driver where#1 is to remove the sensor it's just to release the tabs on either side of it as per pic above with the arrow.
I tackled the passenger's side first and after almost two hours finally figured everything out and installed the sensor.
When I removed the driver's side (LHD A5) the key lock bolt assembly came out quite easily compared the passenger's side plastic plug.
However the sensor itself is different. I was lead to believe the sensors on both sides were identical and they are not.
Did anyone else run into this same situation?
Is there a different part number for the driver's side?
Is there a link to the driver's side sensor from China source on ebay?
