Volkswagen Polo Owners Manual: Repairs and technical modifications

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

Repairs and modifications must always be carried out according to Volkswagen specifications .

Unauthorised modifications to the electronic components or software in the vehicle may cause faults. As the electronic components are linked together in networks, other systems may be affected by the faults. This can seriously impair safety, lead to excessive wear of components, and also invalidate the type approval for the vehicle.

The Volkswagen dealership cannot be held liable for any damage caused by technical modifications and/or work performed incorrectly.

The Volkswagen dealership cannot be held liable for any damage caused by technical modifications and/or work performed incorrectly, nor are these covered by the Volkswagen guarantee.

Volkswagen recommends that all repairs and technical modifications are performed by an authorised Volkswagen dealership using Volkswagen Genuine Parts® .

Vehicles with special auxiliary equipment or body parts

The manufacturer of these components must ensure that these parts (fittings) adhere to the stipulated environmental laws and regulations, particularly the EU directive 2000/53/EC concerning end-of-life vehicles and EU directive 2003/11/EC concerning the restriction on the marketing and use of certain dangerous substances and preparations.

The vehicle owner should keep all assembly documentation for these auxiliary fittings, and pass it on to any scrapping company later engaged. This is to facilitate environmentally responsible disposal for all vehicles, including refitted vehicles.

WARNING

Incorrect repairs and modifications can cause functional problems and damage to the vehicle and impair the effectiveness of the driver assist systems. This can result in accidents and severe injuries.
