RCD330 with Rear USB

Hi everyone,

I just saw a post on reddit that says you can modify an RCD330 to feature a rear usb port.

Any thoughts on how that works? Anyone seen one for sale from a UK Reseller? I'd love to get one for my 6R.

Cheers

Re: Head unit change

That sucks pal, component protection is a pain. I swapped in an RCD310, and came up against the same thing. It's probably after a security code - you can buy these on ebay for like £5. You just have to give the ebay seller some info on your stereo, and they'll get back to you with a security code th...

VW Black Hardware

Hey everyone, I think my Polo might have been in an accident before I bought it - the lower grille trim and headlamp on the passenger side look much newer, the panel gaps on the front wing aren't great, and it's had a replacement window regulator put in on the passenger side using non-standard bolts...

Re: VCDS advice

I did manage to fix the radio faults, by playing with the coding. I'm waiting on a genuine VW key to come so I can try and add remote central locking.

I'll have a look for the door settings in 09-Central electrics.

Thanks again!

Re: VCDS advice

Hi Amer6R, I'm struggling to find the option to remove the rear doors or the heated/powered mirrors within the install list. Here's a link to what my install list looks like: https://imgur.com/gallery/odAwYsN . Here's a download link to my most recent VCDS scan, showing a few weird things: https://d...

Re: VCDS advice

Hi All, I got it working! It seems to be happy. I've completed my BCM swap, from an 085 to an 087, but now I've got some fault codes that I'm struggling to get rid of. For the most part, it seems to be that the BCM thinks I have some features that I don't actually have, such as rear doors and heated...

Re: VCDS advice

Hi Veteran,

I appreciate your advice. I'm going to carefully consider purchasing one of the cables, along with the associated software. Thank you!

Re: VCDS advice

VCDS doesn't seem to want to play ball with the 3rd party cable. It came with a CD that included a .exe file that should make VCDS happy, but it's getting flagged by alllll my anti-virus/anti-malware as a virus. I don't want to install it on my company laptop in case it is a virus, so I'm going to t...

VCDS advice

Hi Everyone, I'm trying to get VCDS working with my 2010 6R S, but it doesn't seem to want to connect. I'm trying to do the set up, and I'm getting an error saying "Interface not found". Is this because I didn't buy the full "Ross-Tech" £200+ VCDS cable? Or have I just got it configured wrong? Any a...

Re: 6R S BCM Upgrade

Component Protection, I heard that I'll have to get the protection removed before the replacement BCM will work.

6R S BCM Upgrade

Hey everyone, I've decided that I'm going to go for the BCM upgrade on my base-spec 6R, Going from a 085 unit to a 087, which should let me fit Remote Central Locking and Cruise Control. Has anyone here added RCL to a base spec 6R? Or even just done the BCM upgrade? Would love to hear any tips, advi...
