Hi All,

My DAB radio stopped working around a year ago, there were no errors on VCDS. My car had been leaking from the boot hatch and the roof liner has been damp for some time so I assume this caused a component/s to go faulty.

I did a scan today and got the below information.

Can anybody advise what part i need to replace to get my DAB going again (hopefully).

I assume its the antenna amplifier pn no.

Cheers,

Rick

@keithuk - thanks so much for your advice, could it really be the connectors, I was convinced it must be something to do with water ingress?

@crasher - how so I send a private message, I clicked on your name but there is no option to send you a message (I'm running the forum on an android phone to do this)

Cheers guys :)

Part number 5G6 035 577 B and costing £61.90 from a VW dealer. It is described as “antenna booster left upper FM2/DAB” and is in the upper left corner of the tailgate. Personally I would suspect the usual broken wire issue in the conduit, a very common problem on the Golf 7. From what I can see at home, the replacement section of the harness is part number 5G0 971 175 B and costs £17.42

Thanks for your advice crasher :)

I guess I will inspect the wiring harness and connectors before buying anything, you seem to be quite knowledgeable on the Mk7.

Anything I can do to show my appreciation or support for the forum just let me know!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend bud and take care.

Crasher, I appear to have the same issue as the OP and would be grateful if you could describe where the conduit is that has the broken wire? Any hints on removing the tailgate trim would also be appreciated as I suspect that will be part of it.
Many thanks.

It is in the rubber conduit on the right of the tailgate between the body and the tailgate, once disconnected it is usually impossible to re-secure as the clips snap off.
