Installing an Aftermarket Head in Your MKV — EVERYTHING You to Know

I’m sure 99% of is already posted in various on this site, but as there to be new threads almost weekly questions about installing an deck, I figured I’d post it all in one place. This is on my own install, plus a few pictures and of info I pinched from people’s threads, so I hope minds 🙂

I’ll try and simplify as much as possible for the people this for the first time, but note: This is for informational only. If you’re attempting install yourself and screw up any of equipment or anything inside vehicle, that’s on you.

The exact amount of tools vary depending on the kind of you’re doing, but this cover pretty much you might need.

— removal tool

— T20 Driver

— Phillips

— Wire strippers

Electrical connectors and crimpers soldering iron

— tape

— Test or Multimeter

— Zap straps Tye Wraps, aka Zip Ties, aka Wire

— A fish tape or coat hanger or old antenna, etc

if you have absolutely zero you can find all the tools you’d to complete this job for less $20.


seems to be the topic that up the most often. To preface: VW a Canbus system to turn radio on and off, as well as with various other in your car. There is no 12 accessory wire in the factory harness . So you have a number of for getting accessory power to radio, depending on what you want to retain, how much you want to spend, and how much you feel like doing.

I have no experience with unit personally, but it seems to be great feedback, and it gives you you need in one package, so it seems to be the way to go. interface will give you the RAP (Retained Accessory Power) as well as a Resverse Signal installation of a reverse camera), and VSS (Vehicle Speed Sense, for some head units GPS). This interface also allow you to retain steering wheel controls, I’m told that a people have had issues compatibility with their head unit, so be sure to Connects2 before you install.

People seem to have and bad experiences with PAC Audio They make a nice but in the past I know they to have a few bugs. And up until if you wanted to replace your and keep steering wheel you needed to cram 3 modules your dash to get the job done. not But now they’ve come up with a all-in-one solution as well, so should make a lot of people

If you’re gonna go with you have a few options:

1) Part # C2R-VW2 — If just going to replace radio, and don’t have/don’t steering wheel control, this is what you want. interface will also you ACC, VSS and Reverse Signals.

In addition to this, if you want to your steering wheel you’ll also need the Module to communicate with the Canbus, as well as the SWI-X Wheel Control Interface. They also make wheel control interfaces to the kind of radio you’re but the SWI-X is a universal piece, so I even bother reccomending

2) Part # RP4-VW11 — is their all-in-one unit I mentioned above. It gives you all the of the interfaces listed above, but all in one

Made by Metra, these are units, and can generally be found a bit than the other units. installed lots of them issue, and the steering wheel are easy to program. They have an all in one unit, but just one and one steering wheel control that you would need.

— This is your replacement interface. Like the is gives you ACC Power, VSS Signal, and Signal outputs.

AXXESS — Universal Steering Control Interface.

Standard Harness

Metra #70-9003, #VW03B, or generic brand

As I have no steering wheel and the cluster without the MFD, is what I ended up using. a little more work, but BY FAR the option. To use this option, have to run your own wire for power, and if you need it, find source for a VSS or Reverse signal. go into locations to find power later.
