2002 Jetta - Changer Install - Dummy Plug? Removal?

3197 Views 2 Replies 2 Participants Last post by  bcruze
Hey guys, I know this topic has came up in the past but I haven't seen any pictures posted. I have a 2002 Jetta that I'm going to install a 610 into. I have the VW98PN6 adapter on order. Question is, do I have a dummy plug installed? I've seen forum posts that say some people have a dummy plug and some don't. I'm new to VW's and I just don't know what I'm looking at.
If anyone can help me out, I'd appreciate it. Thanks!

Re: 2002 Jetta - Changer Install - Dummy Plug? Removal? (bcruze)

Yep. That's the dummy plug! Just like in my 2002 Jetta GLS as well.
Look, there are no wire-pins in the plug. The "plug" is the same plastic harness as the real CD-changer connection.. just no metal pins in it.
Notice how there are two clips from the CD_changer brackes on either side? You have to lift this plug up, and pull out. Then the real harness will be visible, and you can unplug this dummy plug, and plug in the changer. There are two little "catches" on either side of this dummy plug. You can see it in the picture, right next to the carpet.
