Have you tried searching the VAG-COM mailing list message archives?
If you're not a member of that list, I think you'd find it beneficial
to subscribe:

If you don't find what you need, there are lots of knowledgeable
people there who would be able to help.

You should be a registered owner of VAG-COM if you want to post and
get support on that list though...  Uwe doesn't think too highly of
people who tries to take a free ride on his product.
