Re: 2014 Polo touch screen for fitted TPK system

Correct - a different cable is needed to stream the music at proper stereo quality from the TPK to the head unit

Re: Couple of issues

If you have VCDS, youll want to do a throttle body alignment after. If you dont, clean it, then take the battery off for 30 mins and reconnect and itll reset the throttle body position jack the car up and spin the wheel(s) with the engine running as youll be able to feel if the resistance is there (...

Re: Bottoming out?

If the engine mount assembly fails, yes it can cause a knocking. Its a beast to change though so probably best tasked to a good independent specialist.

Re: Polo Strange Noise Near Fuel Tank

The TSI has a high pressure fuel system so its quite possible its the fuel pipes vibrating against the plastic housing underneath and should be fixable by adjusting their position slightly.

Re: 2014 Polo touch screen for fitted TPK system

Youll need to look on the control box behind the radio to get that

Either that, or upgrade the radio to something like and RCD330G plus and do away with it, plus gain a much much better head unit at the same with car play, android auto, better radio etc.

Re: Newbie question: Anybody recognise this unit?

Youll need a new face plate as the RCD330 plus is the same shape an an RNS510 so doesnt have the surround

Im not sure if a 6R fascia will fit - maybe worth looking into

That said, im not even sure an RCD330 plus will work in there as the brain is normally in the glovebox on these.

Re: Couple of issues

The judder, clean the throttle body, change the sparks, change the air filter, change the fuel filter and that should get rid of that problem

Grindin - binding caliper, CV joint, warped brake disk, wheel bearing are the possible causes

Re: Wanted RCD330 Plus

I have a RCD510 with DAB available if you are interested. You’ll need to get the code from the dealer though as it cane from my Tiguan when I put an RNS510 in

Probably a damaged wheel bearing, dodgy CV joint, warped disk, binding caliper.

Re: Hi Guys,

Either a glove box cover from a scrapyard, and swap the lock cylinder over, or you can pop to TPS or your local VW dealer and order a new locking mechanism for it

Re: Bluetooth audio

You do, but the radio requires a 9W7 or 9W3 bluetooth module to be installed from factory in order to use this functionality The setting is there on the menu system, but has no function unless the module is present. Look under the passenger/drivers seat to see if there is a big control box under there

Re: Bluetooth audio

The RCD 310 does not have bluetooth audio

If you had the TPK phone kit installed (little screen on your dash) that provides bluetooth handsfree, but no media streaming unless you add a cable

Its better to pickup an RCD330G+ and replace the lot.
