Hello all. My 2010 A5 convertible backup camera module has water damage . The code said no module communication. So I pulled the module out and it was rusty /poor shape . My question is: i cannot find a used module with the exact part number. My original part number is 8fo 907 441 and all the used modules I’ve found have one letter off in the first column from mine 8t0 907 441. The build date of the modules are within 6 months . And the hardware numbers are the same .will the used module work? And does it need programmed after install?

Have you checked the fuse? Is there power going to the module?

As the software version (second part number) is the same it should work. There is only one way to find out!

if you can’t read the coding from your original module it’s hard to say if the new one will need recoding as they are fitted to several cars. If you do change the coding it will show a “camera not calibrated” error, but will still work.

Yes checked all fuses. I took off the cover of the module and it was a mess. Yeah I guess I’ll purchase a used module and see how it goes.

Okay bought a new backup camera module ($ 388.00 ugh) because couldn’t find a used one. Installed with no problem after checking power and ground before hooking up. hooked up vcds and opened the back up camera . Check codes first And had two codes. Module needed coding and module needed calibrated. I coded the module to the model car and checked the camera and it was working fine. I don’t have the special tools to calibrate the module and I tested the guide lines in the screen and seemed close enough for me so I didn’t worry about calibrating at this time. Just glad I got it working.

Thee are pdf versions of the calibration chart online if you want to calibrate and remove the error.
Did you find out where the water came from that damaged the module?

Oh I need to check them out. I just purchased this and have no history on it. The top was not working And wonder if the top was stuck open in rain. It has been in a few rain storms sense I bought it but I haven’t seen any water back there yet. I’m keeping a close eye on it though.
