Volkswagen Golf Owners Manual: Radio reception and aerials

First read and observe the introductory information and safety warnings

For factory-fitted radio and navigation devices, the aerial for radio reception can be installed in various locations in the vehicle:

Aerials on the interior of the windows can be identified by thin wires.

NOTICE

Aerials located on the inside of the windows can be damaged by corrosive or acidic detergents, any other chemicals or if hard objects chafe against the window. Never apply stickers over the window aerials and never clean the aerials with corrosive or acidic detergents or any other chemicals.

NOTICE

When retrofitting a radio or a navigation system ensure that the vehicle's standard integral aerial amplifier is compatible with the radio or navigation system or else use an additional antenna adapter. Otherwise the aerial amplifier could be subjected to overvoltage damage.

Interference of AM radio reception could occur if electrical devices are used in the vicinity of the aerials in the windows.
