Fitting rear speakers

Any ideas on how to fit rear speakers and run cables.

My Polo does not have them as factory fitted.

It's a 2010 s

I'd like to put them in door but guess that's too difficult as I cant see any fixing location

What's the easiest route for it.

fuel lid actuator - replacement

How difficult is to replace the fuel lid actuator? Mine keeps sticking, and I think it's on the way off. I'd like to do it myself but can't work out how to get the cable connector

Boot lock - replacement - part and source

My boot lock needs replacing. I was wondering if anyone knows

a. the part number
b. whether there are any decent non Vw replacements around.

I have seen various ones on the internet but would rather use a 'brand' that others have used on here.

any suggestions appreciated.

Boot lamp not working Polo 2010

My boot lamp is not working. I've changed the bulb - but with no luck!

I am sure the switch in the boot must be okay, as the light comes on the dashboard to say that the boot is open when you turn the ignition on.

Any ideas what to check / where to check?
