Easy to fit to a Mk4, took some snaps when I installed the last one, will post them tomorrow... Just need the front bumper offso the question is does anyone know how to fit one to an R32 please?
couldn't help but notice that GTIfly had one fitted?
Many Thanks in advance
I still have my manual in the garage, but it was utterly confusing!I have one also fitted to the front grill on my V5, but I never got the
RA2 interface cable to fire it up, so it's just sitting there.
Does anyone have the wiring diagram from the LCR 100 door opener so that I can get mine installed completely ?
Sorry to dig this up from the past but I have only just got around to doing this....Fitting is easy, shouldnt take more than an hour tops.
I'll try and do a bullit point guide to help u along
The main unit needs to be placed underneath the numberplate, so u can screw the holding bracket into the bumper itself
The unit needs to be angled so it is 100% level to the ground, so it's useful to park the car on a level ground, and line up the unit so its true.
U will need to yank out the R32's lower black meshing's to get the unit mounted so it doesnt stick out too far.. sorry should have said that 2 lines earlier! They are only clipped in place with lots of metal clips. Becareful not to loose the clips as they are very fiddley.
Run the power cable alongside the bonnet release cable, which goes along the grille, then up along the engine bay, then underneath the windscreen scuttle. Use Zip ties to make everything nice and tidy.
U need to take off the windscreen scuttle panel - Need to undo both wiper arms completely - each one is held on by one nut under the black caps.
The arms themselves might be quite tricky to pull off, depending how rusted on they are. Take ur time, use some penetrating oil to free the arm from the shaft. It will come off, it's just a matter of patience..
Now u need to run the cable into the cabin. U will need to prod a screwdriver threw one of the rubber grommets on the firewall. This will allow u to feed the powercable into the cabin and directly under the dashboard to the right of the steering wheel area.
Get inside the car and u will need to remove the lower dashboard panels from around the steering wheel.
To do this, take off the dashboard end plastic (the one where the fuse box cover is). Yank it off, it's tight, but it's only clipped in.
Then u need to undo the two large lower panels under the steering wheel. These are screwed in by about 3 or 4 torx screws (go buy a torx screwdriver set!) Also an electric screwdriver is so much more useful to have to hand now!
Basically remove all the lower dash area under the steering wheel, enough to allow u to see the whole u've just made, and so that u can reach up and pull the power cable through.
Now it's time to wire up your switch, led and buzzer.
Where u put the power switch is up to u. I suggest u put it somewhere out of sight, but somewhere where u reach it quickly if u need to switch it off....
The buzzer can stay under the dash out of sight, as they are normally very loud indeed.
U can take power supply from the relay section under the steering column. If my memory serves me well, there are 3 to which u can undo the nuts and take one of each:
All will be obvious when u get down and have a look.
Once it's all wired up, fit everything back the way it came off.
Use some rubber sealent (or bathroom silicon sealent) around the grommet where u pushed the power cable through the engine bay to cabin.
This will prevent dampness reaching inside the car..
Refit the scuttle and wiper arms, paying attention to fitting the wipers back at the same 'rest' position. It might be handy to have made a marker point by using some masking tape along the wiperblade edge on the windscreen..
Hope that all makes some sense!
