This process is very simple with the correct headunit removal tools. The tools are somewhat generic and can be found online to suit Volkswagen vehicles. Simply insert both tools into the slot on either side of the unit, and they will lock into position and release the retaining clips.
Gently slide the headunit out, being mindful of the wiring looms. The small antenna connections unplug with ease, however the large plug as pictured has a special hinge mechanism. In the direction of the arrows, pull up the hinge, which will release the plug. Then gently slide the plug out. You must be logged in to post a comment. MK7 Golf. Difficulty Rating.

Step 1. Using the tools, you can then pull the headunit out of position with a firm pull. Step 2. Did you find this guide helpful?
Does anyone know how to remove the glove box of a mk7 fiesta. I am having trouble removing the two hinges and i dont want to break anything.
take glove box door skin off without glovebox removal?
It's something you need to be quite forceful with - pinch the sides of the glovebox in as much as possible while pulling down. There are flanges at the side that will pop out of their hole and the whole thing will swing all the way down revealing the fuse box behind.
Do you know how to take the hinges at the bottom out, ive got the bit you mentioned figured out but i want to take the whole thing out take it indoors and i want to put some felt in it cause im fed up of me bits and bobs jangling around in there. Ignore that previous post ive solved it, the hinges are made up of two dowels that pop out, then the glove box just comes away from the dash. You can post now and register later.

Then once you have got it out you have to remove the metal housing around the clear plastic lens to expose the little W5W capsule bulb. Tip - my car has a credit card holder thing immediately above the lamp and I was able to prise this out to get better access to removing the lamp plug. On reading that some people have had difficulty getting an LED bulb to fit in the metal holder I suddenly remembered that I have the box for the H7 Philips 'Blue Vision' main beam headlamp bulbs I bought for my Scirocco Which have now gone in to the Golf as cornering bulbs.
With the Philips set they threw in a pair of blue tinted sidelight bulbs - W5W size! Good result. Last edited: Apr 3, Ian91 Ready to race! Location UK. Wish I lived near you Mark - when I get my GT I will replace some of the standard bulbs with led's plus headlight bulbs but a bit worried it may throw up errors when I change them or they start blowing fuses or worse still I just sit there with a bunch of wires dangling down and ten Led's in my lap! By the way how's the car now the suspension is sorted?
Location Northants. Haha - yes that metal cover around the light caused me a few issues - until I attacked it with a screwdriver. I think I purchased so many different types of bulbs before actually having the car I knew one of them would fit.
Ian, you'll probably just need to change the boot, vanity and glove box lights as your overhead lights in the front and rear will already be LED being a GT spec. Of those, the glove box is the pain to change thanks to the metal cover. Would have paid a little extra for LED's if I had the option.Forgot your password? By LawrieJanuary 2, in R Detailing. I think the best you can do is minimise and reduce the look of them them with trim dressings i.
I had one single big scratch on the glovebox lid of my mk6 and after gently rubbing it down a few times with an MF and some dressing to soften the edges a bit which reduced the appearance, I just had to live with it.
These scratches are a pita. Was tempted to get a very fine sanding paper to try to wear it down a tad to see what happens but not sure it's worth the risk If they are on smooth trim could be worth a try but on textured trim such as that on the glovebox, I wouldn't risk it as you may well affect the texture. Maybe just smooth off any rough edges to soften them? Messing with the texture is primarily what's stopped me - i have used a little paper to take any edges off so your eye isn't drawn to the marks but I can still see them.
Pretty much what I did with my mk6 scratch and it was still there but reduced. Prefer that to having an area with abnormal or no texture at all, that could stand out even more. What I have done in the past to disguise these kind of marks is to use a jet flame gas lighter.
Very carefully go over them and the heat will reduce the marking to a point where you can barely see them. But you need to be careful as it can go the other way. I know a chap who buys and sells used vans and he gently uses a blow torch to sort such marks on dashboards, door panels et al. Extreme measures then!!
Heat gun hairdryer type like you use for stripping paint not a blow torch. If I'd have used the correct term it might not of sounded so drastic lol! Don't know who wrote that review but it's the best stuff I've ever used on an interior. Not to glossy, leaves a factory finish and yer it smells lovely. You can post now and register later.

Really missing the lockable glove box on my 7. Seems really tight considering all the other gadgets on the car. Anybody know if there is a Vw part or upgrade I can get? I was wondering the same about the underseat trays I wondered if there's enough hardware left there to just slide a tray in.
The lock for the glovebox disappeared midshould be possible to fit a pre lid, but the key would be different, and expensive to replace all the locks. These were the prices and part numbers from the dealer. All the holes are still there under the seat base, and all that's needed is to add a couple of speed nuts that slide into place on each seat underside to take the two mounting screws and you are done. Several years ago I had my car at a vw garage and was talking with the master technician and had to get something out of the glove box which was locked, when he saw me unlocking it he said you should never lock it.
When I asked him why he said how long do you think that lock would keep someone out if they've broken into the car to take something opportunist thief as opposed to a car thief not long.
Thanks guys, not solved my lockable glove box but now need under seat drawers and lockable glove box. My Audi use to have them so u derstand how useful they can be Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk.

Posted June 20, Installing the underseat drawers is dead easy, but the parts aren't cheap. Perhaps the drawers can be found on Ebay or a breaker etc? Just something to think about. Are the underseat trays easy to retro fit? Yes, minutes per side if you are reasonably handy with basic tools. Join the conversation You can post now and register later.
Reply to this topicThere are lots of reasons for removing the glove box, but the main one is so you can get access to replace your blower motor. You will need to remove the front center console to remove the glove box.
Please see our article on removing your front console. There are eight T20 Torx screws you will need to remove red arrows. Large Image Extra-Large Image. Use a trim removal tool, open the glove box and gently pry red arrow the dash end plate away from the dash.
It is held in place by four clips and will just pop off. Use a T20 Torx and remove the lower outside screw red arrow. Remove the lower right T20 Torx screw from the center of the dash red arrow. Open the glove box and remove the three T20 Torx screws red arrows. Carefully lower red arrow the glove box and pull away from the dash. The glove box will come out as a complete unit. Remove the sensor harness connection red arrow along with the connection for the light yellow arrow.
Installation is the reverse of removal. Got more questions? Or, see what other questions readers have asked about this article All Search Everything.

Removing Your Glove Box
The little plastic pieces that hold the metal pins of the glovebox handle have been snapped off. Remnants of somebody trying to fix them are left. Can you take the door skin off without removing the whole unit? Jettascuba Veteran Member. Yes, you can. Open it and 'lever', 'pry' it off, though I'll rather take the glovebox out.
I kinda like this car, and don't want to break anything. I'm also fixing the stupid armrest latch, and the floppiness of the armrest. Gotta make this interior better! That's how I got mine. Really handy! Last edited: May 19, Rxfire Veteran Member. After you seperate them how do they stay together again, do you have to re-glue them? What do you think You have to re-glue it. Yes, you do break it apart. There a no clips! I use a good two part epoxy glue to put it back together. Is why you need to buy a new lid when the insides self-destructs.
I use a thin blade, like a carpet knife to cut it apart. Easier with the glove box out, on a bench, as I said. I repaired a lot of these lids, so trust me on this.
