Procedures fo writing VIN into CICI and MEDIA by Tool32:

1.2 Ok now lets write your VIN here…
1.3 Then just click on…. (read below)**
**(here you will actually write the new VIN), this works instantly not like NCSexpert which takes time, I wrote the VIN with its check number (17th digit) that you can get from the FA functions from NCSExpert. I can explain you this separately.
Now lets write the VIN to the second place, click on c_fg_auftrag and repeat 1.2 and 1.3.
- Now we will change the ECU, press F3 and look for CICR.PRG and repeat the above same steps for c_fg_schreiben and c_fg_auftrag.
