2005 GTI 2dr lock acuators - 8 pin or 9 pin?
« on: October 12, 2021, 10:03:52 am »
Hey guys,

just purchased a 2005 GTI with 113k and zero service history  :driver:

I noted straight away that the driver door will only lock on the key and not the blipper, and the passenger door will not lock at all as no exposed lock barrel.
I can hear a click when I press the blipper however the doors don't lock. Have checked fuses, reset locking, taken battery off, got a red light on the key fob, all good. So it suggests it's the actuators. I'm taking it to a garage next week for the timing belt and have asked him to change the actuators at the same time and want to get them off of ebay. However the seller says there are 8 pin and 9 pin varieties. Question, does anyone know if mine will be the 8 or 9 to save me buying a set of each and sending one back?

thanks!  :notworthy: :notworthy: :notworthy:
