6C (round airbag) steering wheel into 6R

Hello, Was wondering what it would take to get the 6c r-line/gt/gti steering wheel into a 6r. There's the following three areas; Multifunction Cruise control Airbag connector Steering wheel control module My car already has multifunction and cruise control, but obviously the cruise control won't car...

Re: What are those?

First of all i want to say thank you guys for your help :) I am sure that the noise comes from the little plastic covers that these things have and stick to the metal of the rear hatch. At first i thought it was the rear seatbelt mechanism but i recently replaced them all and immediately after leav...

Re: VW RNS315 Retrofit from RCD310 - What is needed?

Straight fit, just add a navigation aerial. If it's not a DAB unit it won't have dab and the reversing sensor is in the quadlock

Re: Headlamps

All halogen are crap tbh, you could get a LED projector retrofit kit for around £200 from America, note led and xenon both need afs, headlight washers and an actually projector to be legal

Polo steering wheel retrofit

Easier one would be the mk6golf/polo6rgti steering wheel. None of it is hard to do, just need the right tools a spline set, a torque wrench with extension to fit said splines, a med length flat screwdriver, couple of torx probably just t25 but could be 20 or 30, a trim removal tool and vcds/vag-com ...

Re: Exhaust Needed

Just going to say the exhaust doesn’t actually effect mpg just emissions and noise.

You could just get an exhaust from a wrecked polo and paint it, I noticed mine starting to rust so just whacked some high temp paint on it after removing the rusty bits

Re: Polo steering wheel retrofit

2011 would be the 6R, and it’ll be a straight fit just needs coded in but expect to pay a lot as the mk6 wheels are expensive and rare around the £350 mark then £120 for an airbag. (Polo and golf airbags are not the same despite the same shape) Your car should already have the right clock spring and...

Re: Engine pre-heater ?

The VW system is a Webasto, unfortunately the polo’s don’t have it, it’s just the standard air-con in some like the Passat, T4/6 vans and a few others and for them it’s just a case off fitting a £48 receiver.

Re: Sealtbelt warning stays on when no passenger

Could be a faulty sensor somewhere around the seat, could swap the two front seats but would require moving the seat belt mount. Also do you have something sitting on the seat? Like 5kg of weight
