    Part number for 6r polo lock actuator

    Hi guys, my hatch wonít open anymore, Iíve seen a few videos on YouTube about how to replace the part and I think I can do it myself.

    i have a 2011 6r polo tsi

    i thought the part number would be 5M0827505E

    I messaged some eBay sellers who had this part to confirm that it works for polos and they said itís not for a polo. One of them even had ď6r poloĒ in the product name so Iím a bit confused.

    could anyone confirm?

    They are virtually ALL the same I bought this one and it fits but you need an 8 mm multispline hex to get the two bolts off

    Also have to remove tailgate trim which just pulls off carefully. It is exactly the same as the $143 Genuine ones and work perfectly We used it on a 2010 Polo 6R and it fits.

    Thanks.

    Yeah the part number in my post is also in the product description of the ebay link you posted there, but as with the listings I was looking at - Polo wasn't mentioned. I actually messaged that ebay seller to double check why they wrote "6R polo" in the name, this was the one I was probably going to order...

    I ended up ringing Vw back to confirm the part number.

    Apparently it’s 6R0827505E-9b9

    I went back to eBay and found an item with both this part number in the description and the one I originally thought was correct. Hopefully that means I can’t go wrong.

    Also I was told by vw it could also be the microswitch which is $487 inc handle, but obviously cheaper to try replacing the actuator first.

    He also said it’s not the fuse if you can hear your lock is attempting to open because that means it’s getting power.

    Wonder why I bother sometimes . The one i bought was perfect. Even had the same numbering on it as the genuine one I replaced. You cant fix the microswitch as the unit is rivetted together and you ruin it by grinding them off and bending back the metal flaps that locate it all together.

    Then the parts of the inner unit are plastic spot welded together and almost impossible to get apart as I found out. Also the terminals for the microswitch go through a plastic welded part and I couldnt get it apart without ruining them.

    The boot worked fine with my new switch for 6 months until I sold it, so you do what you like but my $23 was well spent. It arrived in about a week from within AUS and some of the others come from China and take 2 months. Up to you I gave you good advice but obviously wasnt believed.

    The microswitch failing is a common thing with these locks

    E- 9b9 only means its a later iteration of the same thing.

    Sorry mate, I trust your advice but that item is “out of stock” and the goal was to find one with the correct part number/car in the description in case I needed to return it for whatever reason. Thanks again for your input.
