Following the success of last weekend's session in Reading I've already had requests from a few more forum members for assistance with their cruise control installs.

Therefore I have proposed a second session in 2 weeks time on Sunday 26th September. The exact venue will be confirmed nearer the time depending on numbers, but it is likely to be in or near to Thatcham, Berks, and in the afternoon from approx 1pm. NB If the weather does not look good closer to the date we will look at alternative dates, as I will not do installations in pouring rain!

Please register your interest below in this thread, along with your exact vehicle model

Names so far:

scottc (LCR 1.8T)

asgh4r (TDI)

Mister E (spectator!)

zUgan (4mo)

hz2921 (1.8T)

mja (TDI)

sijack252(1.8T)

LOFLUX (TDI)

Matte (spectator and fellow cruise 'old hand')

MarkReading (spectator)

AnniGTI (1.8T)

JmZ (Cupra)

Thanks

Chris

I am interested in attending as steering wheel/airbag removal scares me a bit!

What would I need to bring?

Cheers,

Jon (Golf V6 4Motion).

I might see if I can pop along too to see how things are going [^]

How much of a pain to fit, and how much is this for a LCR, Scott/Chris??

Chris, the basic LCR installation is the same as on the Golf 1.8T (as shown on my website), the main differences are purely the way that some of the trim comes apart (eg lower RH dashboard, windscreen scuttle panel etc). In fact I actually think that most of the install is actually easier than on the Golf, as there are fewer parts to the lower dash and it is easier to access the required connector on the bulkhead panel. The only extra operation required is to drill a new hole through the connection panel cover on the engine bay side for the new cruise ECU loom to pass through as this is not a modular item like on many earlier Golfs.

The new parts required are exactly the same as for a Golf 1.8T install - the TDI Golf cruise kit from Foxy (@ ?52) plus an extra ECU loom from me (@ ?17).

Jon, for this session all that you will need to bring along is your car plus the TDI cruise kit from Foxy (new stalk + VW loom), although I have a couple of sets of parts available should they be required on the day.

By having the session close to my home I will be able to provide a set of the tools that will be required for the install, although it will undoubtedly be helpful if you can bring along some additional basic tools such as screwdrivers (inc torx bits) and a socket set for dismantling the trim. I would also suggest that everyone should buy some small cable ties for keeping the new cruise wiring securely in place around the steering column.

Chris,

I have got the Stalk and Loom from Foxy already, will bring some basic bits and pieces.

I take it the V6 is the same procedure as the TDI's?

Count me in, Cheers

Please count me in. I have ordered a cc kit from Foxy so hopefully it will arrive before then. Just bought a Bora 130 TDI last week and would appreciate help in fitting the cruise. Do we have a venue yet ? Closer to the Midlands would be great ;-)

mja, sijack252,

I look forward to seeing you next weekend. As for venue, it will definitely be in Thatcham, Berks so that I have every conceivable tool to hand! This includes VAG-COM to activate ECUs as required.
