Drivers door lock, and central locking. Mods.

Post by Rogerdovey »

Hi all,

Been a member for a few months now and decided to ask a few questions to see what options are available.
My son has a polo 1.2s 2010 his first car, he loves it. He says it's an 6R?

To unlock the car you have to use the key in door as its only got 1 button on the key phob which only operates the light on phob. Is there a way to get remote central locking on this car. The reason I'm asking is that the door lock is getting worse to unlock and he's starting to use the passenger door to unlock car.

He also wants to add a front bumper splitter and is wanting to know if he has to get one that is for 6R or will one for a 6C fit also. Most searches he's done so far are coming up with a splitter for 6C.

If anyone can give advice on these questions with links either to items to buy or even to other posts on these questions that would be great.

If anyone could help it will be much appreciated.

First I couldn't find search option but eventually did and have been trying the search option throughout day but was getting error saying search not available at this time, try again in 6 seconds?
Not sure why but I logged out of forum then logged back in and search is working again.
Cheers for that. Found a bit of info on remote central locking but not much on splitter. Will keep searching though.

Thanks again.

He's looking for a front splitter.

He's looked at a few but most say for 6C and he wanted to know if they fit onto 6R?

Nice one, thanks for that.
Just told him and he's just ordered one.

Cheers for confirming that it fits.
