  • VW install help needed

    I am looking for someone that has the

    Volkswagen Official Factory Repair Manual on CD-ROM
    Golf, GTI, Jetta: 1999 - 2004
    Jetta Wagon: 2001 - 2004

    http://www.bentleypublishers.com/product.htm?code=va44

    I would like to install my carpc but would like to know the proper way to remove the door sills in my 03 GTI. I will use a DigitalWW indash screen and have the rest of the computer installed in the trunk. I will also do a double din to single din conversion for the head unit.

    If someone has this software and can print to file the relevant pictures for taking apart the door sills and stuff I would really appreciate. Dont really feel like spending 99$ on something that I will not use too often.
    Please PM me if you have this.

    Thanks,
    Migrane

    I have it.

    The door sills just pop out, there is one screw back by the seatbelt area, which you need to remove those panels to get to. Those should pop out and lift up by the windows.

    PS Spend the money on the book (you can find them for $50-60 new if you look around. try www.parts4vw.com) it will be WELL spent. And get a Vag-Com while you are at it (www.ross-tech.com) That pays for itself in 2 dealer visits.

      Go the the Golf & Jetta IV forums on vwvortex.com. It's where I found out info on how to rip apart my MKIV Jetta. You can check my install post here: http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=1565061

        I may consider the book I have the Hayes book for my 94 Golf but I hear the Bently stuff is much better. In the interim though I still need this exact information. With regards to the Ross-Tech thing I know its great but it costs quite a lot of cash and my car is still under warranty !!

          Definitely check on vortex.

          The SEARCH there is good, but you have to be patient and read a lot. The info is there but its among heaps of garbage...
