    what kind of amp are you using/trying to connect to? normally all you need to do is feed the amp with proper voltages (constant +, gnd, remote) and it turns on - then you just feed it the signal and things work.

    one more photo or instruction

    What you have done is far beyond what I would attempt, but I am interested in fitting an mp3 auto changer in the glove box.

    Do you have a photo or hint on how to remove the metal surround to the RCD300?

    The surround of the radio comes off quite easily (though it's not metal, it's plastic ). Start by pulling it gently out at the bottom (above the climate control), then you need something to put between the dashboard and the surround, I used a piece of hard plastic, with that you gently unhook the surround more to the top, then with controlled force you can get everything out. A good thing to know here is that this surrounding piece of plastic can be bought at the VW dealership in case you do break it Luckily it does seem rigid enough so it won't break so easily.
    Well, hope this helps

    On one of my pictures you can see how it looks pulled out (and where the hooks are). Mind the 'passenger airbag off' light connection - in case you do have to unplug it for any reason, remember to connect it again, since otherwise the airbag failure light comes on in the dashboard and you have to go to service to clear that error.

    Thumbs up Thanks

    It sounds much easier than the same installation in the Golf, which from pictures seems you have to dismantle a whole lot of the dashboard.

    My local dealer wanted 550 to fit the VW CD auto changer.

    Many thanks

    Holy cr*p, this price is with the changer included, right?
    This part around the radio is easy here - but it's a little trickier to install the changer into the glove box - taking it down seems a little more effort (I don't really know how much, I wanted to take it down once but couldn't, something was still holding it in place; the guy who installed my sound system also took down the glove box and installed the changer frame (and the radio) into it.

    yeah i did same thing i installed kenwood mp5028 , i had to remove the whole side, and glove compartment, i sawed out a rear part where the manual is, and wedged stereo there, i soldered the 8 AUDIO outputs 3 remote power outputs, to a metra clip, basically male clip, exactly same as on your factory h/u, and just joined them, and everything works fine
