Looking at replacing the seats in my VW Polo MK4 (2003) 1.4L 16V. Currently looking at a trading website local to my country (New Zealand).
I came across a seller who sells parts exclusively from VW's going to wreckage due to them being too expensive to repair.
There are a lot of other listings by him and other reputable europarts sellers and I was curious at to whether or not the seats from a GTI Mk5 Golf would be compatible with my Polo Mk4.
I'm not sure if the car is too new a generation to be compatible with my car and I believe the seats would also be heated so would that be supported in my car? I'm not so worried if they wouldn't work in my car, I'm just more into having nicer seats in my 9n.
Also if I may add, up to what generation would seats be compatible for my Polo? If you know, much appreciated !
I fitted my cruise control to my 9n3 TDI over the weekend. I looked around for a guide but was unable to find a complete guide that was written in English, so i thought of writing this one.
Remember cruise control can only be fitted if the control units serial number starts with 6Q0 or 6Q1. This is in the drivers foot-well in the right if you want to check.
The stalk & wiring loom can be brought from here.
With MFD or Without MFD. There products can also be found on this website electritech.co.uk
Firstly i had to remove the dashboard. This is because one of the plugs you need to add a pin too is plugged into the bulkhead. Others have said that they have managed to do this with extra long nose pliers. Others have suggested wiring it straight into the ECU.
If you need help removing the dash a guide can be found here http://www.pimpowski.de/armaturenbrett_aus...n_pimpowski.htm
The guide is in German but you can get a good idea by just translating the text & looking at the pictures.
After you have removed the dashboard the car will look something like this
The next step is to insert the pin into the plug on the bulkhead. This plug can be found where the arrow is pointing too on the picture above.
When you have located the the plug you will need the pull the metal slide out to release the plug. Once you have pulled this out you will need to push down the clip and pull the plug out.
Once you have removed the plug you need to put the pin in. The pin on the wiring loom is the long one that is on its own. This needs to be put onto pin 10. That pin is the pin on the picture above with the grey wire in that is pulled the other way. To get the pin in you will need slide the purple bit on the bottom to unlock the pins. When you have put the pin in move the purple bit back, put the plug back in the bulkhead & then put the metal slide across.
Next you need to put the pins into the steering wheel stalk connector. This can be seen below.
This is where the other wires with pins go. They should be numbered 26 to 31. If the wires aren't numbered but are different colours the list below will tell you what colours the pins relate to
PIN 26 - white
PIN 27 - red
PIN 28 - black
PIN 29 - white
PIN 30 - yellow
PIN 31 - blue
This connector has three levels. The wires need to go into the middle level. The pins are numbered. You can see where they need to go from the picture above. You may need to remove the plastic cover around the connector. This should just un-click from underneath and slide out side ways.
When you have done that you need to plug the plastic connector on the wiring loom into the module in the drivers foot-well. This is on the right hand side. It should only fit in one hole.
if you are having trouble finding the right socket it is socket XS3.
You should now have one wire left. This should be a wire with nothing on the end of it. This wire needs to be soldered to the wire coming from the back of fuse 4. This should be a black and blue wire. You need to splice this and solder the last wire to it. DON'T CUT THE WIRE!!
Once you have done that you are good to reassemble the dashboard.
Once reassembled you will need to activate cruise control using VAG-COM
[01 - Engine]
[Login - 11]
Enter 11463 to activate cruise control
That should be it. My cruise control light doesn't seem to light up when cruise control is on, but it does work. Remember cruise control doesn't work in neutral or 1st gear. You also need to be doing over 30kph.
The original German guide is attached to the post
Hope it helps
