hey !
has anyone tried to deattach the door sides in your scirocco ? i need to replace the original speakers with more powerfull stuff , but i dont want the sides to be ripped apart.. So i tried myself - there are 2 torx screws on the lower side of the door. but of course thats not enough.. i pulled the door trim a little and as much as i had seen(gramma... :oops: ) - there is something more on the most left and right - looks like a screw housing , but its inacessible...
So - anyone knows how to do this ?

btw - VW service is useless - they dont know shit...

Thanks
Michael

I have a set waiting to go in. You need to remove the two torx screws at th bottom and use a plastic trim removal tools to remove the silver trim from the door grab handle. There are another couple of torx screws behind it. Apparently that's it. Though I havent yet tried myself.

As for the back ones. I believe from Ryancooke's advice, you need to remove the back seats to get access.

thanks , that should help :) why a new cluster ? have you damaged the old one ??
the car has a fault with the immobiliser. Apparently the immobiliser unit is integrated into the dash cluster. The part is on back order with VW. I got the car on the 1st of May and and since the 5th it's been sitting at the dealership waiting on the part! Bit of a nightmare.

I had a similar problem this morning, my wife had been out in MY Roc yesterday and I had to re-adjust the steering column. The key was in the ignition but not turned on and when I let the release go the steering column locked up, the key could not be turned, the brake pedal became rock hard and the gear lever (auto/DSG) locked up too. Looked in the handbook in the dead lock bit - not much help as it referred to the last resort of using the key externally (noticed for the first time there isn't one*). After a bit of physical wrestling with the steering wheel it eventually unlocked again but nevertheless a bit scary and presumably related to the immobiliser/deadlock somehow! Just hope there is no permanent damage to the electronic bits.....

* Well at least not a visible one, BM recommend that you only flip the cover on the handle in a real emergency as they are fragile and easily scratch able!
