    RDC 310 DAB upgrade options

    First Welcome to the forum. The unit you are referring to would not be a straight swop as the 6C it originates from uses a totally different setup, there is a main entertainment control unit in the glovebox so it would need a major rewire, You could upgrade it from the RDC310 to the RDC510 that is a colour touchscreen unit. If it already has a MFSW then swapping to a flat bottom shouldn't be a major problem.
  3. The micro switches in the door locks are a common problem, if the system doesn't get a signal the door is fully latched it will then send the unlock signal, by doing from the external key you are probably just moving the mechanism slightly further so it stays locked

    RDC 310 DAB upgrade options

    Hi all, My Son has a 2014 Polo 1.2, it has an RCD310 DAB radio installed, and I wondered if I could upgrade it to a flat screen, model 6C0 919 603, (Not sure what RCD number that refers to)? Can I do a straight swap [with a harness adapter] or would I have to settle for a Pioneer/Sony etc? he also wants a flat bottomed MFSW, but that seems to be a bit more hsssle, thanks in advance for any help Baz PS - I’m new here, so hi!
  6. Looking for some advice, can’t seem to find anything specific for my problem anywhere else. VW polo 2003 1.4tdi 3 door So, when the interior lock switch is pressed the drivers door locks and then instantly unlocks - only the drivers door the passengers door locks as expected. I have tried replacing the switch but this did not fix the issue. The car does not have remote locking, when the key is put into the door and turned once the car locks fine, but if turned for a second time in the lock direction it unlocks the drivers door. The interior light works as expected, and turns off when door is closed and on when opened. The main issue is the interior locking switch when the lock button is pressed it locks and instantly unlocks the drivers door. The boot and passenger lock and unlock fine and the unlock button inside works as expected. any help would be much appreciated.

    a brush pack/voltage reg may well fix the issue , worth replacing on any old polo really 2x screws to fit...check if it looks like this, maybe worth having a spare in the tool box? https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/12v-ALTERNATOR-VOLTAGE-REGULATOR-BRUSH-BOX-BOSCH-BMW-VAUXHALL-SEAT-QUALITY/273785226095?hash=item3fbedf036f:g:lO0AAOSwOYZeFd5L

    MK2f Saloon Project

    Hello all, this is my first post. I bought a mk2f saloon last september, previously modified by the person i bought it from in the style of the US ski team (i dont know why... but it was fun) Anyway since buying it i have done a number of things, namely taking the skis off of the roof and replacing the ski pole gear stick (hahaha) for a normal one. Things i've also done: Changed petrol tank, fixed gear linkage, filled rust hole underneath battery (my foot got wet while driving in the rain), service (new plugs and filters all round), fitted rally fog lights My current issue is electrical. I thought i had a weak battery as it wasn't starting quite regularly, so a while ago i changed the battery. But this didn't seem to fix the issue and after having it hooked up to the mains for a couple weeks i found a scrap yard near me which luckily had a mk2f coupe sitting there, so i took the alternator off of that one and replaced mine. That seemed to do the trick immediately after, giving the battery charge, yet the charging system warning light has now come on on the dash, where as it wasn't there when i did have issues! I tested it with a multimeter and my tests seemed to show that the alternator was working, but now the same thing is happening, if the caf is left for a day or more then it won't start when i next go back to it. By the way this is my first car, and i'm learning everything on it, so bear with me if my knowledge is lacking!

    I need to recheck as i did it in a rush. The battery check was accurate, so long as i had the key in the right position, electrics on but not engine, but i can't say i 100% got the correct terminal on the starter. I'm fairly certain but really need to recheck properly. I do have electronic ignition in place. Car is 1983, but the early one. With awkward parts! I didn't/wasn't able to test the starter while cranking the engine but will do that when i do the recheck.

    The 8mm stud at to top is permanent 12v from battery (and 14v from alternator once running). 1.2 volt is weird. Would think it would be zero unless cranking the engine that sends current to starter solenoid. Might there be a resistor lead to drop voltage to the coil to 11volts ish - old design saves points. But you now have electronic ignition right? What year Polo?

    6n2 gearbox removal

    I just removed gearbox. It took me hours to find 5th bolt. To see it and get acces to it you need to remove intake manifold and starter motor. Its right under starter motor.

    Breadvan engine leak

    Yeah i did the one on my old breadvan. Was character building! Especially finding out i had the wrong one! Got the old one off, had 3 terminals, new one only had 2! Thanks dude. I'm hoping to get chance to check it properly tomorrow. Couldn't see for sure where i had the probe as air filter housing was in the way. I got 2 different readings. One was 12.2, which i'm pretty sure was the right terminal, (big bolt on top,) and other reading was 1.2, which i'm not entirely sure what it came from, so will recheck to be sure. Had key turned so electrics were on but not so engine was on.

    That starter motor looks okay. I found a remanufactured starter for 1.3 that was only a fiver less. It also appears to have the brass bush that goes in the gearbox on end of shaft. Replacing the bush is sensible. Getting old one out can be awkward. I used threaded bar and a cable tie.

    The bolt i touched on the starter was the one nearest the top. Going to check it again just to be sure.

    Also, definitely no earth connected to coil.

    Breadvan engine leak

    Okay. Took my multi meter in today. Reconnected the battery, checked that and got 12.2, kept the black pokey thing on the negative and touched it on the tip bolt on the starter. I got 12.2 om that too. When i disconnected the battery again. I heard clicking from the engine. Not sure where, as i wiggled the terminal off the post. So i tried again to turn it but still nothing. I'm gonna try the starter check again on all three terminals just to be sure. I think i got the right one but i'll check all three anyway. Also gonna check when i have someone to turn the key just to see if i have different numbers come up.

    Breadvan engine leak

    Breadvan engine leak

    never seen one on the cam cover if ever you have doubts about earths ...run one jump lead from the battery neg post to a metal part of the engine/box and try it again , this will provide an adequate earth to start the car
  25. Eviljohn

    Breadvan engine leak

    Pretty sure there isn't one there so i should proby sort that. Do i need one from cam cover to front crossmember? Remember having one on my old breadvan but not on this one.

    Breadvan engine leak

    coil bracket - gearbox mount tbh any metal part on the engine /box to the body will work , just make it short and not tangled around moving part
  27. dvderlm

    Breadvan engine leak

    mounting bracket or threaded hole in inner wing. It is heavy to carry quite a lot of current. Would not want to damage the tiny coil blade terminal as it flexes.
