    Hello, Recently I fitted an aftermarket radio to replace my VW gamma radio. I used the connectors that I got with the radio and tapped into wires from original connectors. Everything worked fine until I decided to sell the car and wanted to put the OEM gamma inside again. Now the radio reads...

    Hi, I've decided to sell me original VW Gamma Radio now that I have retrofitted the VW MFD Sat Nav Radio. However, I've already posted the radio and the buyer is requesting the radio code which I cannot find anywhere. I have never needed the radio code myself, despite disconnecting the...

    Hello there! All is in the title. I have a 1998 B5 passat with a Gamma V. The sound quality is very poor indeed and I am looking for some machinery that could improve it: an amplifier perhaps (like the Helix PP50 DSP). I will change the speakers as well. BUT, I want to keep my car as original as...

    I have a 97 Passat fitted with the Gamma 3 radio/CD changer. Does anyone know where I could get hold of the instruction manual for it, maybe in PDF format, as the only one I have is in German, a language I do not speak.

    A buddy of mine has a 2000 b5 with the gamma stereo with an (original)amplifier in the trunk. He wants to connect an active sub woofer, and therefore needs to know which cables he can "steal" a signal to the sub from, if it's possible, preferably without weakening the signal. The plug is kind of...

    Hope this is the right place for this. My gamma radio has developed two problems that I suspect are related - 1. Can no longer detect CD changer. The changer apparently has no power - won't accept the cartridge etc. 2. Will only pick up strong radio signals. I believe that the antenna has an...
