Recall codes

So I recently found out in the back of your service book and in the inner spare wheel well there will be recall codes for your B8, trouble is I don't have a clue what the recall was for, as for as I know the B8 wasn't affected by the emissions update so what are they?Image

Guessing the first one is the emissions but the 2nd one is a connector that needs checking to do with safety measures.

Like I said B8 with euro6 engine didn't need an emissions update, I even gave my reg to VW UK and they confirmed this.

97BP BRAKING PERFORMANCE MAY BE AFFECTED
Description : The central wiring harness may not have been correctly connected to the central electrics unit. If the connector comes loose it can affect certain electrical components including braking assistance.

Can't find anything on the other one and I missed the emissions thing in the 1st post ;-)

Cheers, guess I'll have to call the dealership and ask.
