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!
Here's my guide to retrofitting the official fog lights including the official wiring loom. The wiring loom can be purchased from Kufatec Polo 9N3 Loom Polo 9N Loom You will also need a new light switch with support for the front fog lights. Part number is 6Q0 941 531 C I purchased my lights of ebay. They included the fog lamps & also the new plastic covers. If you purchase 9N3 lamps you will require a HB4 bulb. If you purchase 9N lamps you will require a H3 bulb. I would assume you can install 9N lamps in a 9N3 and vice versa. but i haven't tried this! The 9n & 9n3 lamps have different connectors so if you are installing a different lamp you will require the same wiring harness as the lamp type. If there is anything you are unsure of the ask me and ill try to answer it. Unfortunately i had to remove the dashboard to install this, as there is a wire that comes from the bulkhead. For instruction on that look here: http://www.pimpowski.de/armaturenbrett_ausbauen_pimpowski.htm Once I had removed to dash you will require the grey loom. You need to take the long pin that is on its own and put that into plug G on the bulkhead. This should be a red one. To remove the connector slide the metal bar across and then unclip it. You should have to remove a bit of purple plastic from the plug to get the pin in. This pin should go into pin 6 on the connector. They are labelled on the plug but you can also use the image below for reference. Once the pin is in then replace the purple plastic, plug it back in and then slide the metal bar back across. MAKE SURE THE PIN IS IN THE SAME WAY AROUND AS THE OTHERS! Next there should be 2 big metal pins. These need to go to the fuse box. They need to go to fuse 44. Use your manual to find this fuse. You will need to remove a piece of plastic from the side of the fuse box, and then the big bit of purple plastic should slide across allowing you the enter the two pins. There is no set way round they should go in the two holes. Once they are fully inserted then push the plastic piece back and replace the piece you removed. Last job in the cabin is to take the last remaining pin and put it in pin 8 on the new light switch. Again they are numbered on the plug but use the below picture for reference. TOP TIP: I would leave the dashboard dismantled for now. Next job is to install the black loom in the engine bay. First you will need to remove the wiper arms & the black tray. You will now need to remove the bulkhead tray. This can be done by removing the silver metal circles to enable you to pull away the fabric. You will then need to remove the screws holding the tray to the car. This doesn't go all the way down to the bottom of the car.If only goes down to just behind the engine. Once that is remove you will need to remove the wiper motor. This is done by unplugging the cable coming out of the side and the just pulling out the unit. When that has been remove you should see this Pull off the black covers, then locate pin one. This should be the other side of the pin you inserted earlier. You will need to remove the green plug that is in the hole. When you have done that insert the pin on the black wiring loom fully in the hole until you are unable to pull it out. You may need to remove the plug from the other side to help you. MAKE SURE THE PIN IS PUT IN THE RIGHT WAY ROUND SO THAT WHEN YOU PLUG THE OTHER PLUG IN IT GOES INSIDE When you have done you need to route the cable down, and then use the metal ring to earth the loom at earth point 12 Once you have done that all that is left to do is trail the cable down to the fog lights, plug them in & test them. Remember the ignition needs to be switched on for them to work. When tested working, re-assemble the car. Remember i accept no responsibility for incompatibility of parts on your car & also any damage done!! Feel free to ask questions if you are stuck. Hope this helps Check out my other retrofit guide on Cruise Control Oliver
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
