Volkswagen Polo Service & Repair Manual: Antenna Wires, Replacing

A new repair concept has been developed for repairing antenna wires. Refer to → Chapter „Antenna Wires, Repairing“.
Instead of a complete antenna wire, connecting wires of different lengths and various adapter leads are now available as replacement parts.
General Description
Replacement parts can be found in Parts Catalog.
These original replacement parts are suitable for all antenna wires and wire cross sections to be replaced.
Connector housing for antenna wires can be obtained as a replacement part only in one color, but can be used for all antenna connector colors.
The replacement of individual antenna connectors during repair work is not intended.
The wires are appropriate for use on all VW models with equipped antenna wiring cross-sections.
All adapter leads and connecting wires are suitable for various transmission and reception signals.
This repair concept can also be used for testing or as an aftermarket solution.
   
Assembly Overview of Antenna Wire
Example: antenna wire from the radio to the antenna is faulty. The following wires are required for repair
1 -  Adapter lead for connection to radio. Length approximately 30 cm.
2 -  Connecting wire, available in various lengths.
3 -  Adapter lead, for connection to antenna. Length approximately 30 cm.
Installation of a New Antenna Wire
  Note
Depending on vehicle equipment, make sure that the total length of antenna wire can be divided into partial lengths by control modules for antenna selection, control modules for traffic monitoring or antenna amplifier. Only the defective sections need to be replaced.
–  Separate the connectors of the faulty antenna wiring from their components.
–  Determine the path of the faulty antenna wire in the vehicle and measure the total length of antenna wire to be replaced.
 

Antenna Wires, Replacing

The entire length of the antenna wire consists of the length of the required adapter leads -1- and -3- as well as the connecting wire -2-.
–  Subtract 60 cm from the total length calculation for an antenna wire to provide for the required length of connecting wire -2- to be installed.
–  Obtain the required adapter cables -1 and 3- as well as the calculated length of connecting wire -2- as genuine replacement part according to the Parts Catalog.
–  Cut the connectors off of the faulty antenna wiring.
Leave the rest of the defective antenna wire in the vehicle.
–  Connect adapter leads -1- and -3- to modules in vehicle.
–  Route and secure connecting wire -2- in the immediate vicinity of the series-installed wire routing.
  Note
Antenna wires must not be kinked or excessively bent! The bending radius must not be less than 50 mm.
–  Connect the connecting wire with the adapter leads.
–  Perform a function test.
