Things to note

1) The Rear Assist system should not be used in the following situations:
– If the reversing camera is not providing a clear image, e.g. if visibility is poor because the lens is dirty.
– If the space behind the vehicle cannot be seen clearly or completely.
– If the rear of the vehicle is heavily loaded.
– If the driver is not familiar with the system.
– If the position or angle of the camera has changed, e.g. following a rear-end collision. The system should be checked by a qualified workshop.
2) Optical deception by the camera (examples)
The Rear Assist rear-view camera supplies two-dimensional images only. Due to the lack of depth of field on the screen, potholes and dips in the ground, protruding parts on another vehicle or protruding objects on the ground may be difficult or impossible to see on the image.
Objects or other vehicles may appear closer or further away on the screen than they really are.
– If you drive from a level surface onto an upward or downward slope.
– If you drive from an upward or downward slope onto a level surface.
– If the rear of the vehicle is heavily loaded.
– When approaching protruding objects. Such objects can leave the camera's field of vision while you are reversing.

Cleaning the camera lens

Keep the camera lens clean and free of ice and snow:


Volkswagen recommends that you practise parking with the Rear Assist system in a traffic calmed area or car park. In this way you can become familiar with the system and the orientation lines in a safer environment.

The Rear Assist system cannot be switched on if the electrical connection of the factory-fitted towing bracket is connected to the trailer or the tailgate is open.
