Volkswagen Golf Owners Manual: Accessories and parts

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

Volkswagen recommends that you seek advice from a Volkswagen dealership before purchasing accessories, spare parts or service fluids. For example, if the vehicle is to be retrofitted with accessories or if parts have to be renewed. Volkswagen dealerships can recommend accessories, parts and service fluids suitable for your requirements. They can also answer any questions you might have regarding official regulations.

Volkswagen recommends that you only use approved Volkswagen accessories and Volkswagen Genuine Parts® . These parts and accessories have been specially tested by Volkswagen for suitability, reliability and safety. And Volkswagen dealerships are qualified to install them correctly.

Although the market is constantly scrutinised, Volkswagen cannot assume responsibility for the reliability, safety and suitability of products Volkswagen has not approved. Volkswagen can therefore assume no responsibility for these parts, even if they have been approved by an official testing agency or are covered by an official approval certificate.

Any retro-fitted equipment that has a direct effect on the vehicle and/or the way it is driven must be approved by Volkswagen for use in your vehicle and bear the e mark (the European Union's authorization symbol). These devices include cruise control systems or an electronically controlled suspension.

Any additional electrical components fitted that do not serve to control the vehicle itself must bear the mark (manufacturer conformity declaration in the European Union). Such devices include refrigerator boxes, laptops and ventilator fans.

WARNING

Incorrectly performed repairs or modifications to your vehicle can impair the effectiveness of the airbags, cause faults, accidents and fatal injury.
