Just wired my kit up. Slight difference in that the yellow and yellow-and-black wires needed to be wired to earth in addition to Jay's description. No biggy as that's how it showed in the wiring diagram for my (slightly different) lock kit.

I guess so, it dosent touch the roof mounted sensor as you just wire it to the central locking unit that the key operates in the centre console

Ha, I love that my post was the last one on this thread! Bump for this excellent guide - just fitted my new 8v GTi with remote locking. Imagine the novelty of not having to have line of sight to the plip receiver!

My post here: http://www.bxclub.co.uk/forum/viewtopic ... 45#p254600

Here's a new link to the kit that I used, since the one in the original post is now out of date. Click here for imported Chinese goodness

Just installed my kit as per Jays instructions, had to earth the yellow / yellow black wires to wire 2 just like Dollywobbler.

Bought from http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/131305448459 ... EBIDX%3AIT

Why didn't I do this 5 years ago.
Cheers for the guide Jay!

Does anyone have the pictures saved from this thread, as they are no longer working? Or could someone take a picture of how they wired the box into their existing setup so I can copy them? I have the kit from eBay but can no longer see what to connect to what! Cheers! :)

I suggest you PM JayW to get him to upload the missing pics direct to the forum where they will then stay permanently now.

I did, no reply yet (probably busy) - was just hoping it would be super simple as so many have done it before but looks like I'm getting the multimeter out this weekend! :)

Ive not got them on the PC anymore and photobucket screwed up my account so most files are lost.

I'll have a look and see if they're still on any of my back ups but it won't be til the weekend.

I don't have any copies, they're long gone.

Someone hacked my photobucket account and deleted EVERYTHING.

That's a shame, but never mind!

For anyone who is trying to follow this guide, it's not too hard and you can still do it without the pictures. The thing I was missing was that it says 'pins are numbered thus' and there is a missing picture - I had assumed that you'd drawn numbers on the picture and that I needed it to know what's what. In actual fact, the numbers are printed on the plug in the car so you don't need the picture at all.
