Has anyone got this working? Dynamic Sounds don't seem to...

    Hello - my 2006 1.9TiD Sport has the hands free padels on the steering wheel but there is no obvious part number to purchase in order to take advantage of the functionality. Does anyone know what part number(s) I would need to get hands free from the factory fitted switches.
