Forget a 12L vento, the bluetooth integration is missing from even a 20+ lac jetta, while segments lower Figo has it.

Vento already has moved to overpriced category being short on features and another price increase is on the cards. Wonder what folks at VW are upto.

Of course there is. Unfortunately that accessory is not being offered in India.

And you always have the other jugaad option - a BT headset.

There definitely is, however the issue is the bluetooth adaptor is prohibitively expensive that you can do a entire music system upgrade with that kind of money.

You search for the compatible bluetooth adaptors in ebay, amazon etc.

I do not see any option in the stock unit for a bluetooth connectivity, then ow would it be integrated with the unit?
any suggestions on the device?

But would you happen to know the model number of that accessory ?

Please search for the bluetooth adaptor for RNS (or RCD) 310 music system from VW. It was there in one of the posts earlier in the Vento TD thread.

You can give him this detail & then let us see his reaction

The clutch is super after the pipe replacement...

Hope this helps



cheers
Hey Ricky_63, me thinking of getting the part replaced, will call the workshop guys over the weekend, however, before doing that just wanted to know how "better" has it really got. In the sense
1. The coarse / grumbling sound when changing gears is gone, but the stiffness is still there
2. It is now a super light clutch (no stiffness while pressing) with the sound still there
3. No sound + No stiffness = "God damn' it, why hell did i not read your post before"

(Sorry, din't know how else to avoid confusing you )

I do 60 kms a day and though i have got used to it, my leg would be obliged if the above was true.

Sincerely hoping for 3

Nikhil from which workshop are you planning to get the hose pipe replaced? Will it be VW KSM Motors, Nerul? As stated by Ricky if clutch really becomes super smooth and no grrrr sound while depressing it would make driving Vento even better. Even my Vento 1st service is due in last week of March so might as well get this done too. If you do plan to goto KSM Motors workshop let me know I might come over and see the difference it makes.

Hey Rohaan, I am planning to do it from VW Thane (Global Gallerie), thats where i bought it from, and know the guys a bit too.

However, depending on what they say, will also check @ KSM, Nerul (closer to residence).

I am planning to call them over the weekend, and will surely let you know what they say.

@ Ricky: My left leg is indebted to eternity!!!

I would recommend anyone facing issues to push hard for replacement of the pipe, the difference is H U G E

Hi Ricky, I explained the SA regarding the problematic clutch operation and he too agreed to it. I also showed him our forum pics of new hose pipe.

However after looking into the system they are saying that the new part no is
6R2721465K and not 6R2721465R

They are saying its with suffix K. Any idea about this?

I am worrying about correct part replacement. It will be of no use if they again put the older design pipe. Then it wont make a difference.

Well, your car is under warranty ? You are going to have your complaint adressed...period. Let them what they want to change, at the end of it, your clutch should be sorted.

Also I should mention the part number I mentioned was off of the Invoice raised, so unless they typed that wrong OR have changed the part number..

Just go get it done - if it is not sorted, raise hell

Hope you get this sorted sooner than later, the bliss of a nice clutch is WOW



All the best
