    I have a 1999 V reg 1.6 8v, has the remote central locking...

    Did yours come with a key which has two buttons built into it? Unless yours is an older version...What year is it?

    Not all MK4's had central locking fitted. They may have wires going to the latches but there's no motor or switches there

    so i am guessing that i will need all the new latches out of a car with central locking and the control unit plus remote if i want remote central locking i thought that with the wirering being pluged in to the latches some one had just removed the control unit is there any way of finding out if mine is ment to have it or not

    There is no plug and play aftermarket kit and the motors weren't easy to mount with the cable door locks
