How to disable the OEM R8 rear spoiler using Audi diagnostic software

I wanted to share this PDF document which explains how to deactivate the OEM R8 rear spoiler for anyone who may need it using the Audi  equipment VAS.

Here are the instructions for anyone else wishing to deactivate the rear spoiler using VCDS:

Short Method scroll down for the more detailed method

8. Paste the number into the bottom box New Coding

9. Change the 8th number along to a 2.
In my case this went from being 
1890200201182D098505489AD633
to
1890200001182D098505489AD633

10. Notice how I have only changed the 8th number along to a 0 to deactivate the rear spoiler.


More Detailed Method


1. You need a VCDS HEX-USB+CAN cable from Ross-Tech or occasionally from eBay sellers before their listings are withdrawn.

2. Plug the cable into the OBD-II port which is located in the drivers footwell above the pedals.

3. Insert the key and turn on the ignition

4. Connect the USB end of the cable to your laptop

5. Open the VCDS Application

6. You will be presented with the following main screen of VCDS

18. Click on Do It!

19. VCDS will confirm if the coding has been applied correctly.

20. Close the VCDS Application and disconnect the cable from the OBD-II port of the vehicle.

21. All finished, the button in the centre console for the rear spoiler should no longer work and the rear spoiler will no longer rise at the pre-determined speed automatically because it has been completely disabled.

 


Here is another way.....

How to disable the OEM R8 rear spoiler using Audi diagnostic software

1) Module 09

2) Long Coding (07)

3) Byte 10 – change Hex from 4C to 44 (or from Binary 01001100 to 01000100)

Or just untick «Rear Spoiler Installed»

4) Do it !

Make sure you take a screen shot before you change anything just incase you need to put back to stock.

Good Luck
