Re: A coolant drain tap on the 6C/6R Polos?

If yours is a post 2014 model then it will likely be a 6C (it's best to be specific as to which version you have when posting with queries so answers are relevant).

Re: Unlocking doors

But you said "....... security and deadlocks, ie. you've locked the vehicle without Safelock" . Unless you meant "locked from the outside", that can't be the case, can it, as I was able to open the doors from my seated position? I guess you meant to say "If you press the Lock button twice while you...

Re: Unlocking doors

Sit inside the car and press the lock button twice. If you can open a door using the internal handle then you have verified that 2 presses of the fob deactivates internal security and deadlocks (i.e. you have locked the vehicle without SAFELOCK). If you can't open the doors with the internal handles...

Re: Unlocking doors

Locking - One press will lock everything no matter how your system is encoded

Unlocking - In your case, the coding seems such that, upon unlocking, one press unlocks the driver's door only and two presses unlocks all doors and tailgate

Re: Unlocking doors

So long as you press once to lock then all will be fully secured (deadlocked). You would only press twice upon locking if you wish to lock the car with someone inside (with deadlocks being disabled in this case the occupants are able to open doors from the inside should they need to get out). By pre...

Re: Unlocking doors

I just can’t believe VW would be so remiss as to require the fob button to be pressed twice to lock the car. The outcome would be that nearly all similarly equipped Polos would be left partly unlocked by unsuspecting owners who press the button once only... The second press upon unlocking has been a...

Re: Unlocking doors

I've found that, after a time, I've become accustomed to pressing the fob twice (twice to lock everything, and also twice also to unlock) and do it instinctively now. Something wrong there. When locking the car, one press should lock everything (regardless of security settings on the passenger door...

As lichel has suggested; more detail would perhaps help in el...

Re: Looking forward to Saturday

I've been kinda hoping that in due course either VW themselves or an approved manufacturer would be able to supply a small conversion kit that makes use of the existing wedge connection. I think a few such converters exist in the general marketplace but my understanding is that they're not as yet l...
