This page directly applies to VW Touareg (7P) and VW Golf (5G/AU) Chassis vehicles with Headlight Regulation MQB headlights. This can be identified by evaluating the data in the Auto-Scan:

Address 55: Headlight Range (J745)       Labels: 7P6-907-357.clb
  Part No SW: 7P6 907 357 C    HW: 7P6 907 357 B
  Component: AFS-ECU       H01 0091  
  ASAM Dataset: EV_HeadlRegulAFSMQBMLB 001001
Address 55: Headlight Range (J745)       Labels: 7P6-907-357.clb
  Part No SW: 7P6 907 357 D    HW: 7P6 907 357 A
  Component: AFS-ECU       H07 0090  
  ASAM Dataset: EV_HeadlRegulVWAFSMQB 001120

This page can also be used as a general Basic Settings guide for Facelift MQB cars with LED headlights using address 4B instead of 55 per this scan example:

Address 4B: Multifunc. Module (J745)       Labels:| 3Q0-907-338-V1.clb
  Part No SW: 3Q0 907 338     HW: 3Q0 907 338
  Component: FCM MQB Low   002 0286
  ASAM Dataset: EV_MultiModulContiVW48X 001010


This control module is Long Coded. It is strongly advised to run and save a complete Auto-Scan prior to replacement so the original coding can be copied and pasted directly into the new control module. Coding information is available using the Long Coding Helper in VCDS.
