Volkswagen Australia Tiguan Model Year 2012 (MY12) Changes

The new Tiguan presents a new invigorated design and whilst brand DNA elements such as the horizontal grille and prominent lower front bumper are evident, the new Tiguan displays a fresh but familiar styling theme. Precise and powerful lines from front to rear of the vehicle combine to create a sporty and dominant compact SUV.

The Tiguan model range is now bolstered with a completely new and exciting proposition – the entry model now heads the line up with the much awarded, responsive yet efficient 1.4 litre 118kW twincharged TSI petrol engine with the inclusion of BlueMotion Technolgy to optimises fuel savings. The engine is mated to the 6 speed manual transmission with power delivery driven through the front wheels. This offers an amazingly affordable and extremely competitive price point model in a fast growing area of the segment without sacrificing equipme125TSI rent or comfort levels. A future front wheel drive DSG model is also in the initial planning stages to further enhance our competitiveness in this sector.

The outgoing 125TSI has been replaced by the improved and upgraded 132TSI with 132kW, 2.0 litre petrol engine delivering exceptional drivability and complimented with impressive fuel efficiency. The diesel model 103TDI has been injected with improvements including BlueMotion Technolgy for added economy.

To complete the range, the 155TSI with DSG combines style, elegance, practicality and heightened specifications as well as added performance from the 2.0 litre 155kW turbocharged engine over its 147KW predecessor.

The below table outlines the model line.

Model Code  –  Model Description   –  Drive
5N20QX/12  –  Tiguan 118TSI 6 speed manual  –  Front wheel drive
5N20N2/12  –  Tiguan 132TSI 6 speed manual  –  4MOTION
5N20N9/12  –  Tiguan 132TSI 7 speed DSG  –  4MOTION
5N203U/12  –  Tiguan 103TDI 6 speed manual  –  4MOTION
5N203R/12  –  Tiguan 103TDI 7 speed DSG  –  4MOTION
5N22M9/12  –  Tiguan 155TSI 7 speed DSG  –  4MOTION

Equipped as standard across the range is the convenience of Bluetooth connectivity and Media Device Interface (MDI) allowing you to listen to your favourite tracks or make that important call during any drive or commute.

Customers will be offered a simplified but concise factory option list – To highlight some of the key options, the 18” inch New York alloy wheels enforce the sporty stance of the Tiguan and matched with the additional front fog lights complete the essence of style. Improving visibility and visual appearance, is easily gained with Bi-Xenon headlights with LED driving lights. The Adaptive Chassis Control option gives you the choice of three different driving settings to suit your driving demands. Park Assist 2 will be offered for the first time across the Tiguan range and with the incorporation of front and rear parking sensors will assist greatly to reverse or bay park with ease. The interior can be optioned with Vienna leather appointed seats and complimented with the additional Comfort Package to include dual zone climatronic air-conditioning, automatic headlights, rain sensing wipers and interior ambient lighting details. The complete list of options are detailed in the attached new Tiguan Information summary.

Tiguan 132TSI Pacific Special Model

Due to the extraordinary global demand of the Direct Shift Gearbox (DSG) a Tiguan Special Model (Tiguan 132TSI Pacific, automatic and manual) will be introduced and substitutes the Tiguan 132TSI DSG and Tiguan 132TSI 6 speed manual. This special model will be orderable from November 2011, (calendar week 45/2011). As a consequence the Tiguan 132TSI DSG and manual variant will not be orderable for production until mid-2012.

The Tiguan 132TSI Pacific special model will be identifiable with Pacific badging at the rear of the vehicle and is available in manual or alternatively as a 6 speed (conventional) Tiptronic automatic gearbox. This special model will include a host of additional features at no additional recommended retail price to the customer. Both the manual and automatic variants include, the Comfort Package, Front Fog Lights, and Park Assist 2. The addition of these key features adds $2,800 worth of value to the customer as well additional sales opportunities. Please see the below special model information:

Tiguan 132TSI Pacific

Model Code  –  Model Description  –  Drive
5N20N2P/12  –  Tiguan 132TSI Pacific 6 speed manual  –  4MOTION
5N20N3P/12  –  Tiguan 132TSI Pacific 6 speed Tiptronic automatic  –  4MOTION

We believe the new Tiguan is an extremely competitive Compact SUV in its class with compelling, comfort, style, safety and affordability. A detailed summary of specifications, colours and options is available to you in the attached document. Pricing will be announced and dealer pricing distributed at the time of launch, which is currently scheduled for the fourth quarter of 2011.

These vehicles are visible on your code in NADCON. The new Tiguan will shortly be available to order through NADCON Configurator.

Current high levels of demand globally for the new Tiguan are presenting some challenges with production. For this reason to secure the maximum available production quota, we will be prescriptive with the fairshare offer mix until calendar week 21/2012, at which time this will be reviewed.

*We are currently not able to release the Tiguan 132TSI Pacific special models for ordering or the NADCON configurator. Due to this, the Tiguan 132TSI DSG and manual are now available to configure. Please keep this in mind that even though these vehicles are configured as 132TSI DSG & manuals, they will be produced from calendar week 45/2011 or later and will be built as 132TSI Pacific special models with the inclusion of additional features and the automatic gearbox.

Detailed specification, technical and pricing information will be available closer to launch.

    • The new option of Keyless Access is now available. The retail price for the Keyless Access option is $900 (ordering code 4F2)

      The Keyless Access electronic locking and starting system offers the driver extremely convenient and secure access to the vehicle, without having to lay a hand on the key.

      The key only has to be carried by the driver. Within a radius of 1.5 metres around the vehicle the doors and boot can be opened after touching the door handles or the release on the boot. The engine is started (or switched off) simply by pressing the starter button located on the steering column.

      The locking process is just as simple. One press on the button located in the exterior door handles activates the central locking. Should the key have been left inside the vehicle by mistake, the system will refuse to lock the vehicle.

      Additionally, the Keyless Access option for Eos features the ability to open and close the CSC roof by remote control.

      By standing close by the Eos (within approximately one metre) the roof can be remotelyopened by pressing the unlock button once to unlock the car and then within a couple ofseconds pressed and held until the roof has opened fully. Similarly, to remotely close the roof, press the lock button once to lock the car and then again press and hold the button until the roof has completely closed. An audible signal will be heard when each operation has completed.

      Keyless Access offers the driver the ultimate convenience and maximum security.

    Installing an aftermarket Rear View Camera (RVC) into a Golf Mark V and VI rear bumper

    The camera chose for the RVC install is a butterfly style camera, the Kufatec interface for the RNS510 required an NTSC camera.

    Camera specs

    VN2105
    Butterfly style mount
    Size: 20mm diameter and 25mm deep
    Viewing area: 150°
    1/4″ color CCD camera

    Camera purchased from Dealextreme for USD$110.35 delivered http://www.dealextreme.com/details.dx/sku.11408

    Step 1 – cut opening for camera in rear bumper

    The butterfly camera was chosen as I wanted to minimise drilling into the rear bumper and wanted a camera that was out of sight hence the area immediately above the number plate. The install of the camera was slightly complicated by the presence of a rectangular potted box so a larger hole has to be cut into the rear bumper, as the number plate is always fitted to the car I decided to cut the opening behind there and route the cable up behind the plate.

    If the camera doesn’t have this box fitted the hole only needs to be slightly larger then the connector on the end of the cable. A dremel makes cutting the opening reasonably quickly with masking tape to mark out the cutlines and protect the surrounding paint.

    Step 2 – Remove trim

     

    Installing a Golf Mark VI Rear View Camera (RVC) into a Golf Mark VI

    Requirements: RNS 510 with firmware version 1100 or greater or RCD 510 (not sure of firmware version requirements for RCD 510 and not all RCD 510’s have the video input on the rear – at this stage only RCD 510’s supplied with cars optioned with the RVC come with the video input).

    Most of the steps can be performed in any order (with a few exceptions). The wiring looms can be prepared in advance and details on how to build both the main wiring loom that links the camera to the RNS 510 and the camera in the hatch are being prepared. The hatch loom will include all measurements.

    Examples of the camera in operation – Volkswagen Golf Mark VI Rear View Camera (RVC) In Operation.

    There is an alternative camera that is a third of the price of the auto opening camera, it hooks up in the same way but can be mounted in the rear bumper (under the lip over the number plate) or inside the rear glass. The part number is 5K0 980 551 (5K0980551)

    The motorised camera only pops up when required, when the handle is operated normally the camera is hidden under a spring loaded flap. The camera can be seen in the second photo with the flap lifted. There is a drain that will safely drain any water that makes it’s way into that compartment out through the bottom of the hatch.

    Removing the rear lid trim panel

    Removing the rear trim requires the use of a fair bit of force, the following guide gives a good idea however remove the two panels for replacing the reversing and foglight bulbs as this allows you to see where the clips are. (this is a mark V removal guide but there is little difference between the mark V and Mark VI when removing this trim)

    Quad Connector on the end that interfaces to the camera is a 4E0 035 749 B (4E0035759B)

    26 Pin connector on the end that interfaces to the RNS 510 is a 7L6 972 726 (7L6972726)

    • Pin 13 – Orange
    • Pin 24 – Brown (Ground)
    • Pin 25 – Blue
    • Pin 26 – Green

    Cable is a Bacar(R)588-2 / 10712189 – no specs found

    The power cable is not long enough for this application and needs to be extended, for consistency and future fault finding the cable should be extended in the middle by inserting a ~1.5 metre lengh of cable of around ~1mm size capable of carrying 5 to 7.5 amps.

    On the camera end there should be around 20 cms of power cable going past the end of the connector (the spade connector on the end of this power cable can be removed) and on the RNS 510 end the wrapping should stop at around 80 cms and around 50 cms of power cable should be left free to enable connection to the fuse box.

    Extending the power cable

    Extending the cable in easy, twist the wires as shown after placing suitably sized heat shrink tubing on the wire, solder and shrink wrap.

    vw_rvc_main_loom_extend_wire_1 vw_rvc_main_loom_extend_wire_2 vw_rvc_main_loom_extend_wire_3

    Wrapping the power cable and the video cable

    Wrapping the two cables together is strongly recommended to protect the cables during their installation,  to make future fault finding easier and make a neater installation that looks OEM.

    vw_rvc_main_loom_finished_1 vw_rvc_main_loom_finished_2 vw_rvc_main_loom_finished_3

    Installing the loom between the camera and the RNS 510.

    Due to the length of the cable it’s best to remove all the trim in one go so the cable can be positioned correctly, the cable runs down behind the RNS 510 and under the drivers steering wheel, down the A pillar, along the door sills, up alongside the seats and over the rear wheel arch, up a opening into the C pillar where the rear windscreen wiper fluid travels, through the conduit into the hatch and to the rear camera. Not all of this is covered in this install guide for example headunit removal and installation.

    RNS 510

    Remove the RNS 510 and plug the single 26 pin into the RNS 510 as shown, reinstall the RNS 510.

    vw_rvc_main_loom_plug_into_rns_510

    A Pillar

    Remove the lower A Pillar trim and route the cables up and across to the rear of the RNS 510.

    Door Sills

    The door sills don’t need to be removed but only lifted to allow access to run the cable.

    Volkswagen Golf Sill Panel Trims – Removal and Installation

    C Pillar

    Pull back the C pillar trim at the rear of the car enough to allow you to see the openings, there is no need to remove the airbag tag and unscrew it as was done here. Using some stiff wire or yellow tongue (stiff yet pliable plastic rod used by electricians to run cables through walls, ceilings etc) to penetrate into the cavity behind the tail light (pull the carpet out as you were replacing a bulb and this will give you enough room to route the cable. In the photo following you can see a black wrapped tube that runs into the hatch area, route the cable via the same penetration.
    vw_rvc_main_loom_run_through_conduit_3

    Conduit

    First remove the plug surrounding the connector on the end of the cable, after this has been removed bend carefully the power wire and tape it down back over it’s body to prevent damage when running through the conduit. In the first photo a small lug can be seen on the left side, lift this up and slide the connector out.
    vw_rvc_main_loom_run_through_conduit_1 vw_rvc_main_loom_run_through_conduit_2
    The conduit can easily be removed by pulling the top one out (gently) and for the bottom one pushing the bottom side up towards the roof of the car causing the clip to unhook, once this is unclipped the cable can be pushed through reasonably easily. Passing the cable through can be made easier if you use masking or electrical tape to remove the sharp edges of the connector.  Ensure that both ends are refitted tightly to prevent any leaks.

    Hatch

    Volkswagen Golf Rear Lid Trims – Removal and Installation

    Remove the trim around the rear window paying particular attention if you have window film, there are three clips on the side which come off by pulling from the lower edge up (down as it’s upside down) towards the top of the glass. Once the three clips have popped you can pop off a few more that run along the top of the window to give you room to work, around 2/3rds of the clips across the top of the window provide enough room to work.

    Run the loom with the existing cable by taping it to the two fixing points (white clip in strips) and put the trim back in place.

    vw_rvc_main_loom_run_through_conduit_5 vw_rvc_main_loom_run_through_conduit_8

    Power Circuit

    Follow the guide Addition of extra circuits to the Volkswagen Golf / Jetta / Passat / EOS / Scirocco / Rabbit fuse box and install a new circuit on the third row (permanent power – check before installation).

    Programming Head Unit

    Using Vagcom/VCDS the headunit requires programming to tell it of the existence of a RVC.

    Connect to controller 37 and in long coding under Byte 3 select Bit 6.

    To complete the programming reboot the RNS 510.

    Install drainage for the Golf Mark VI Rear View Camera (RVC) installed in a Golf Mark VI

    This guide is just one of the steps to installing a Golf Mark VI RVC into a Golf Mark VI – Installing a Golf Mark VI Rear View Camera (RVC) into a Golf Mark VI.

    The Volkswagen RVC Camera from the Mark VI has a drain hole under the camera in the housing and this does build up a substantial amount of water under the right circumstances, I found around a litre of water in the base of the hatch after a downpour and when the hatch was opened in ran down inside the area around the rear window. There are two problems with drainage into the rear hatch and one is that many Golfs have all three drainage holes plugged and painted over and the other is that not all water can drain but instead sits in the seam at the bottom of the hatch until the rear hatch is opened.

    volkswagen_rvc_drainage_drain_under_camera volkswagen_rvc_drainage_drain_under_camera_inside

    photos: the drainage hole at the base of the camera and the exit point under the camera.

    I removed one of the drainage plugs in the middle and whilst it stopped the buildup of excess water I had concerns about the rear hatch long term especially when so much water can make it’s way inside the hatch. The Mark VI has a tube that drains to the outside and that’s what I’ve done here.

    Fitting the tube

    After the drain plug has been removed push the tube in.

    volkswagen_rvc_drainage_fitting_the_tube_01

    The tube fits in under the lip on the bottom of the hatch so will require some jiggling around to force it under.

    volkswagen_rvc_drainage_fitting_the_tube_02

    Connect the clear tube to the drain above it.
