Apologies for bringing back an old thread. I’m in need of some help.
I’m curious how the retrofit for the dynamic light assist went and if you required to change the headlights to get it working?
I have a 65 plate R which has the lane assist plus package and dynamic light assist. Unfortunately the car has been through a collision and I need to replace both the headlights. The part numbers on my headlights are 5G2 941 034 E/ 5G2 941 033 E where as nearly all of the Golf R headlights for sale online have the part number 5G2 941 751 D/ 5G2 941 752 D.
I’m trying to work out what the difference is in between the two headlights.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
I’d be very surprised if all four wheels were buckled. It’s unlikely to be unbalanced wheels either if you’ve had them balanced three times. A few things to check;
What is the centre bore for your RVO19 alloys? - the centre bore fitment for alloys on the Golf (and most other VW’s) is 57.1. If the centre bore for your wheels is larger than this, then the fitting kit supplied with your wheels should have included a set of spigot rings that fit in the centre bore of the wheels to reduce it to the standard 57.1 for the Golf, to ensure a snug fit of the wheel on the hub. Not fitting spigot rings (if they’re required) is likely to result in wheel wobble / vibration. More importantly, it would also mean that undue stress would be placed on the wheel bolts as they would be taking the entire weight of the car (dangerous!), when it should be the car’s hubs (with wheels with the correct sized centre bore) that take the car’s weight.
Aftermarket alloys usually have a wheel bolts with a different seating face profile to the bolts fitted to OEM factory alloys. It’s important that the seating face profile of the bolts mate correctly with the bolt holes in the wheels, otherwise they cannot be torqued up correctly which could result in loose bolts and wheel vibration.
Bolt tightening sequence; I’ve read on various forums that if the correct bolt tightening sequence isn’t followed on the mk7 Golf, then vibration can be experienced. The correct sequence is to tighten the bolts diagonally / in a star pattern sequence by hand to 30nm while the wheel is off the ground. Lower the car on to the ground and tighten bolts diagonally / in a star pattern to 75nm. Lastly, tighten bolts diagonally / in a star pattern to 120nm.
yeah i did fear that, whats funny is no fault is found but the alloys are wobbling,
i asked if they removed the wheel to which they said no... so im my opinion they have stopped at the symptom rather look for the fault.
ive asked them to put a set of wheels on whilst on the ramp to prove the alloys are at fault
