Seems like they changed the base a little from your mk7 to my 2019 mk7.5.
Oddly enough, looks like I have to swap spring clips.
How tight was it on your windshield mount?
I hate those little black cover pieces!!!! Cover removal was the most difficult part!!
Admittedly, I broke some tabs on my black trim piece out of frustration. It definitely took some work to get it seated correctly but I finally got it clipped in after about 30 minutes of cussing and sweat lol.

It's in!
Got it installed, will run the wiring when it warms up, -snowed today, and I'm still parking in the driveway.
Kinda worried about pulling the interior covers without a warm day, probably just paranoid.
Swapping to the oem spring did the trick. The Homelink spring was bent just enough to prevent the stop lock above the power connector from engaging.
I gotta buy some picks, or make some flat hooks from scavenged wiper blades. Next time I may just pull the overhead console 1st, and work my way forward......

Is the wheel DSG or manual? By the looks of the pics it's for a manual but want to confirm.
