      from the mk5 subforum, but thought it better to start a new one given that it relates specifically to a mk6...although probably 90% the same.

      Plan is to retrofit park assist to a mk6 without PDC.

      Needed:
      New park module (1T0919475H)
      addional wiring harness for Park assist switch in console
      addtional wiring for two addtional sensors in front bumper
      addtional sensors, and mountings
      coding

      Since the only documented retrofit is on a russian site, I'm still relying on maloosheck to give it a bash with him mk5 jetta, but thus far the fellow has not had a chance.

      Getting to you pDC module should you have one already, as below (pics compliments of Kufatec)
      Module is under the rain tray near the edge of the windscreen

      Remove rain tray


      Remove wipers. looks like there is an addtional bolt after the wiper removal under the rubber covers.


      Loosen indicated retainig nuts


      Remove wiper assembly


      Locate this cover underneith


      and there's the PDC module, or where the PDC / Park assits module will go.

      As a new parent, I can now see the usefulness of this if you are backing up and a child pops up behind your car since my conscience would KILL me knowing I backed over a kid. That being said, I dont have this feature in my car but its good to know you looked into it.

      Parking has little to do with it, just being able to do is the reason! That and having less blank spaces on the console above the gear lever...

      Thanks a lot Belox,

      Park assist is on the front too.

      Let me know how you get on. Still trying to find the pin out for the PDC module, know I saved it somewhere.
      Side sensor for park assist has a different 'bracket' to the other four PDC sensors. If you find this park number, let me know! Can't see anything on ETKA, seems to marked as 'non-replacement part'

      Great thread. It will help to have wiring diagrams of your car and a car that has to go to configuration. If your car is a DSG, the coding in the Mechatronic could be different.

      If only - RVC camera install still awaiting final wiring...for 4 months now...and it only needs power and connection to reverse signal.

      Finally located PDC module pin outs. Would assume park assit module would be much the same, with some additonal pics used for addtional front sensors, and some for the parks assist switch most likley in the same area as the PDC switch.

      HI,
      I think that it can help us,



      I found a document, in deutsch, with the explanation of the Park assist components if you want i can send it to you, just tell me your email adress.

      regards

    19. 04-25-2011 09:10 PM #19
      Nice! Hopefully this isn't too hard, then I'll try to do it myself
      I'm about to retrofit PDC, so I wonder if I should wait to see if I can retrofit both at the same time?

      I gotta tell ya, our Passat SW is going back off lease in 2 months and I'm going to miss the packing sensors like mad! Don't get me wrong, I can reverse/parallel park my jetta sedan no problem but the sensors make it even easier to park the Passat and let you park in an even tighter spot!

      Thinking of getting a JSW TDi and would miss the sensors, so maybe this would be an option.

      I think this diagram could help if you already have 8 OPS sensors:



      I'm planned to make this swap, I already installed the 8 OPS Sensors......but I will first retrofit the Tiguan RVC, then the Park Assist.

      I did swap my Steering Wheel for a new one and module with the CH one. I always got a soft error on the Steering Wheel Assist module that the Parking Assist is missing...so it is time to retrofit

      Hopefully my ABS works with Park Assist, I have ESP (1K0 907 379 AC ESP FRONT MK60 0101)and Jetta GLI model is 2007.

      Here is a list I compile so far:

      1T0 919 475 H Park Assist Unit
      000 979 009 E Wire to the Control Unit X2
      1K0 927 123 B REH Parking Switch
      4D0 971 636 Plug Parking Switch
      000 979 009 E Parking Switch Wire X3
      1T0 919 297 A GRU Park Assist Sensor X2
      1T0 919 133 C 9B9 Sensor Seal X2
      3C0 919 494 GRU Sensor Holder Right (This is just a guess for a Jetta)
      3C0 919 493 GRU Sensor Holder Left (This is just a guess for a Jetta)
      1T0 973 203 Sensor Plug X2
      000 979 034 Sensor Wire X3
      06A 972 741 Wire Seal X10
      1J0 973 714 8 Pin Bumper Plug from Car (switch form 6 pin to 8 pin)
      1J0 973 814 8 Pin Bumper from Bumper (switch form 6 pin to 8 pin)
      000 979 131 E From Car Wire (Related to 1J0 973 714)
      000 979 132 From Bumper Wire (Related to 1J0 973 814)

      IF you need; as my case, more space for the console buttons, 5 instead of 4 you need the EOS/Golf VI Console:

      5K0 857 961 9B9 Console for 5 Switches
      5K0 863 487 1QB Console Trim

      Seems like too much of a hassle, I can tell how close I am to hitting something within a foot, and in any car I've driven with that feature (all chevys), the car starts beeping like crazy when you get that close.

    25. 05-10-2011 03:12 AM #25
      Can't wait for you to do it, please take pics!

      I hope this can be retrofitted to the JSW, I don't know if the difference in dimensions will be a problem, hopefully nto since the module is for Golf, EOS, Tiguan, etc...
