Body Control Module - can I fit a polo bcm into a T5.1

Post by Sollymolly »

Hi All,

Sorry if this has already been done to death. I have been researching the topic a fair bit and have what I think is an understanding of the procedure to upgrade the Bcm in my T5.1. I have a 086 BCM at the moment and would like to fit cruise control so want to put a 087 module in. Looks pretty easy from an installation point of view and coding the new BCM is something I have done a bit with before so I'm not overly scared by that. I haven't ever reconnected the keys so that's a worry but the procedure looks straight forward enough.

My sticking point is on the purchasing of a new BCM. The ones selling second hand on ebay advertised for t5s are 300quid. However there are some on ebay with the right pins in the right places but are the R6 module for a polo but on for 50 quid.

Question - will the R6 module work? There seems alot of threads on here suggesting there is a good cross over between the electronics so I'm hoping it's the same?

Thanks Rob

Sure a 6R0 937 087 should work
