    P334A00 Charge Pressure Actuator

    Not on the actuator, it fails due to the downstream joint seizing up. It's the joint that should have anti-seize applied. And yes, should be done as a preventative measure and depending on local climate, should be repeated (annually). The joint in question looks like this:

    DIY MIB1 to MIB2 Infotainment Conversion (Part 1)

    Depending on your tolerance to the mess in your cubby, the answer is really getting the correct connector and transferring them out from the 18 pin connector. My post here shows which ones get used...

    P00AF00 Wastegate

    Approximate location to stick your arm in can be found on my post here. @Mk7tsi3door, yes you want to work the antiseize into that joint so that it reaches the pin that the joint pivots on.

    P00AF00 Wastegate

    Just a friendly PSA reminder to lube them joints! With the long stretch of humid weather past couple of weeks and my first application of lube drying out, ended up getting a new P256300 error. Looks like this should be an annual thing to do...

    MK7.5 Digital Cockpit retrofit

    Ah that's unfortunate. I think zoom level of the AID maps is a gazillion times better function than listing destination history. I would jump on an AID upgrade just on that. On a similar vein, on the standard MFD, if the compass mode could simply list each upcoming perpendicular street you are...

    MK7.5 Digital Cockpit retrofit

    Is this the answer to being able to have zoom controls with maps on the AID? That chat on the topic you had last year with FlorentDB looked like it kinda fizzled out?

    DIY MIB1 to MIB2 Infotainment Conversion (Part 1)

    You should be able to reuse the MDI port, you need an extra 2 pin connector and remove two pins from the outgoing 16 pin connector just for the analog input USB 5V and common. See here for what I did. For the analog input, you'll need an additional 4 cable connector and associated pins from the...

    Looking for a partnummer from a light

    So to those who ever needs to replace the driver side interior door handle LED ambient lighting... I finally got mine replaced. It seems that when the door card is assembled, the LED gets put in place before a separate piece gets plastic welded together. Therefore the proper way would have been...

    DIY MIB1 to MIB2 Infotainment Conversion (Part 1)

    Just a PSA/friendly reminder on doing 3Q0035047# or 5NA035026#, you must upgrade your amp to the MIB2 amp (5Q0035456). So far, accounts of having the MIB1 fender amp work has so far been with the Discover media (8XX parts) and the ROW discover pro parts. No one has figured out yet how to make...

    DIY MIB1 to MIB2 Infotainment Conversion (Part 1)

    To my understanding, the 8XX part numbers are non Pro parts while 0XX part numbers are Discover Pro. NAR Discover Pro found in the eGolf and 2017 CDN golf R should be 3Q0035047#. It's not that the Discover Media can't show NAV in the AID, it's just you can't see NAV in BOTH the AID and main...

    Looking for a partnummer from a light

    I googled 5G0.947.356 D nada, then I googled 5G0947356 D nada again, now I just googled 5G0947356D o_O You'd think Googles algorithms wouldn't be so strict! Thanks! time to buy some parts.

    Looking for a partnummer from a light

    Most likely it is not. My driver side handle (Wiring Diagram L219) has failed a while ago. While doing my ambient lighting I did a quick check, it is most likely permanent part of the door card. Searching 5G0.947.356 D did not bring up anything at all though that may just be part number of...

    DIY MIB1 to MIB2 Infotainment Conversion (Part 1)

    Unfortunately I've never had to make any changes associated to the audio output directly from the MIB2 unit. I had the MIB1 Fender Amp which then had to be replaced with the MIB2 Fender Amp and assume that since both headunits were expecting amps sound settings would have been very similar and...

    Is it possible to put ambient led light above the glove box?

    So I finally finished my install. Overall, I feel positive with the results. I essentially followed HumbleMechanic for all the steps needed to disassemble to get to the coupling point for rear left/right doors to add the wires and terminals. This should be the goto video for running new wires...

    DIY MIB1 to MIB2 Infotainment Conversion (Part 1)

    If its a Canadian 2015 Golf GTI Autobahn, it's supposed to have fender sound package. That year I recall you only had two adder options, the PP and the comfort package (leather seats) and regardless of what options you choose it should have fender as standard. Regardless, if you do not have the...

    [Mini Writeup] LED ambient light in glovebox trim

    Agreed, I'm still in the process of the rear door cards. I also found the fitment not ideal. Compared to the outgoing stock silver insert, the new one with the fiber optic, although it follows the same shape I found slightly smaller at the tips leaving a small gap. The strip has a bit of a...

    Arteon Style Blind Spot Mirror Cap Installation

    OMG, good find on the video, I just coincidentally did the same method for pulling a new wire for the door harness just for my new rear ambient lighting before seeing your post but this video should be posted on every "how to I run new speaker/BSM cable" thread! Your BSM thread (removing the...

    Is it possible to put ambient led light above the glove box?

    Not really. But the closest one to one is the wireless RGB kit installation tutorial that IWMTom wrote in this post https://golfmk7.com/forums/index.php?threads/rgb-ambient-lighting-for-mk7-and-mk7-5.381507/post-7575319 Post #3 gives you a good idea of the dash trim parts and what you have to...

    Is it possible to put ambient led light above the glove box?

    If you're really considering the rears, use this link as it has both the glovebox and rears in red for your GTI https://www.aliexpress.com/item/1005002665190222.html?spm=a2g0o.order_list.0.0.493f18028tT55U I've purchased this one a while back. Though for me it is still a work in progress...
