Newbie question: Anybody recognise this unit?

Post by PhilEvelyn » Thu Jun 14, 2018 3:08 pm

Just bought a 2016 1.2tsi in Spain and this is a picture of the HU. Anyone know which unit it is? AND, am I going to have to buy a new surround or does the face plate come off an rcd330plus to fit this dashboard?

The dealer tells me that this is a composite media 5 inch.

Is it going to be a straight swap for an RCD330 plus? I don't get my hands on it for another 6 weeks until we move so I'm trying to do this blind.... which may be stupid.

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.

Ouch. Glad I haven't bought the new plus yet then. Will have to wait till I get my hands on it. Something else to wait for.....
