In the last couple of days I have had two post 2015 type 3G Passats in, one was for a service and the other to code in a new sunroof module. On the one for service I struggled to get my new HEX NET dongle to stay in the port and maintain a connection, I had to hold it in place but then moved on as I had things to do. Today I was doing the sunroof coding and I could not get the dongle to even make a contact, I had to drop the panel down and extract the port so I could plug in, then I realised I had to use ODIS to do the coding and software management, so I put the trim back together, the VAS 6154 plugged in fine and I tried the HEX NET again and could see it was fouling on the trim, part number 3G2 819 593 A, before the terminals could make contact, is this a right hand drive peculiarity? My old HEX-NET interface plugs straight in

@Mike@Gendan, is this something you are hearing more complaints about? We have not heard complaints.

Our tools meet the required standards. Early on, VAG had models that had trim issues (and did not meet the standard) with access to the DLC. Didn't think it would come back in recent models.

Tight port surrounds do seem to be a right-hand-drive issue on some models.
It's worth keeping a short extension cable in your toolbox.

You lean something new every day, I didn't know there was such a device, I will give you a call and order one.

Not really hearing more, but we've had 2 or 3 come up in the last year or 2.
In the cases I remember the RHD mounting location seemed to cause the problem.
