Hi everyone I have a 2015 Polo 6C 1.0 with the composition media (CD drive and SD card reader in glove box) I did want to fit retrofit a stereo with carplay/Carlink but after speaking to a VW Coder not sure if I'm going to retrofit a composition unit that supports car play. As he told me because my polo is a 2015 and they only introduced car play in 2016 I would need to remove the component protection from a newer unitn(easy enough) but then would have to patch the system and get a licence for it which would be around the £500 mark . Plus second hand units are selling for around £60. For this sort of money I was thinking there must be a stereo that looks and performs similar to factory ones with less headache. Unless anyone else knows a VW Coder that can do it cheaper? Is there any decent aftermarket units that look stabdard and work with the steering wheel? Thanks in advance Ant
New member here! I drive a 1.2l 9n3 polo, 2006 on a 55 plate. Having done a fair amount of searching I know this topic has been discussed before on here and I have a fairly good understanding of what I need to acquire and do as a result, but there are a couple of points I still have queries about: i) Which one would be the appropriate instrument cluster to go for? I’ve been on etka/oemepc and there is a bewildering array to choose from, in very technical lingo (and I like to think I’m quite tech-savvy!). ii) where can I get the instrument cluster from? I have found literally only one mfd cluster for a 9n3, on eBay, and it comes with the necessary stalks. It’s approx. £140. Is that a reasonable price for the mfd cluster with stalks? iii) However the cluster I found came from a diesel car. Does this make a difference? The tachometer only goes up to (I think) 6000rpm, compared with my current one which goes up to 7000. Aside from the fact that I have no intention of revving to 6000rpm (let alone 7000) does the fact it came from a diesel make a difference in any way? I read somewhere that even though it’s a different tachometer scale it should still give an an accurate reading. Will this one still be compatible? iv) I know that I need to get the new cluster coded to my car, but how do I actually go about doing that? I don’t particularly want to shell out for VCDS, so could I take it to my local VW dealership? What do I ask them? ‘Here, I’ve got this instrument cluster I want to install, can you code it to my car please?’ Will they charge to do this? v) Will there be any features on the mfd which might be disabled due to the age of the car e.g. mpg display? My car has air conditioning and I’ve read that the mfd pulls the data for outside temp. from the ambient temperature sensor attached to the air con system. Is there anything else I might need to look into adding? Thanks in advance for any help! It’s starting to look like quite a big job....
I've followed the guide in FAQ's to retrofit remote central locking to a friends Polo 9N but had a couple of issues: Module installed, coded etc, but I'm unable to get the remote to pair. Has anyone else had this issue and what was the solution? The original module was 6q0959433h (H02/S0002) and I've got 6Q0 959 433 E (H01/0001) - I know some have said you need the right sub-variant but others have had no issues interchanging. All installed and coded with VCDS no problems, just unable to get the remote to pair. Tried the original method of ignition on, lock door and press unlock x2 but nothing. The remote we got was the 'AH' variant but everything I've read says this is interchangeable with 'DA' and some on here have had no issues. Also yesterday, I got told that whenever he unlocks the car with the key the hazards start flashing immediately (they flashed after about a minute initially which I assumed to be due to expecting an alarm to be fitted?), and also when he turns the ignition on, all the instrument check lights come on the cluster, but then there is a 'bong' but no obvious cause. I've not had chance to scan with VCDS again yet but wondered if anyone had any ideas - am I looking at a faulty module? Any help greatly appreciated!
Hello I just bought a 6n2 tdi! However it doesn't have fog lights. I have just bought some for the car. Reading online I see some people mention the wiring should already be in place? I have pulled the front grills off and can't find any pre existing wiring for fog lights? Has anyone else done this before here who could offer some guidance? Kind Regards -Shane
