    Do I need an auto electrician? 17th May 17 at 9:42 PM
    Bought a VW RNS510 (not the RCD510 I originally said, sorry!) for my MK5 Golf and need it fitting. A family member thought they'd have a go then decided against it.

    I know of a good independent garage but before I ring them and ask about it, do I actually need an auto electrician?

    If so, any recommendations in West Yorkshire?

    Thanks Paul - did look at doing it ourselves but decided the risk of screwing it up was too high, also there was a chance we'd need a thing (Canbus?) that seemed like it could end up being a hassle.

    ETA - as if to confirm that this task is beyond me, I actually bought an RNS-510! Original post edited.

    If you try some of the facebook groups or VW forums there may be someone locally to you who can sort it.
