When it comes to the roof, I have found the guided fault finding on the software that came with my VAS5054 indispensable. Since that tool is (a clone of) what VW garages use, that gives you your...

Sadly headlamp units aren't designed for the glass to come off, but some people do cut the unit open to solve problems like this (and to modify them, add LEDs etc). That's not an Eos-specific thing...

Wishful thinking! The RNS510 is PATA. Which makes finding suitable SSDs hard.

Unscrew the side trim sections - you have two screws under the back seat, and one by the seat belt. It clips into the part where the roof is stowed, so you will need to push the side flaps up or...

It's not standard - the front emblem is part of the grille. If you want to swap it out for one with the VW emblem on, you will likely find a buyer for the badgeless grille on here.

I agree, always start with a diagnostic scan. It'll pay for itself in time and money.

I believe the RNS510 has some magic in it to detect when the Aux input is present. It could be an issue with the wiring to the Aux connector, or even an issue with the cable between the Aux...
