When I tried to get going this mornig I was stymied by a stuck cable - the locking pin was presumably frozen. It was about -2 C.
I have now got it to release - on the Golf GTE forum I found this suggestion: 'the locking pin should release (if not frozen) by holding the instant charge button next to the socket, in conjunction with the key fob door release button'.
Even though temperatures are still sub zero, it worked.

The manual has two methods to release the cable:


Also, check that you have the protective ring fitted to the cable, it should stop this from happening (the dealer fitted the ring to my cables backwards, only found out after the cable froze in the socket):

Just for posterity, I have those problems too on Golf GTE 2015 + it also seems not to charge on public station (cable & plug of the station).

Actually I have an error that nobody knows/mentions anything about, I'll post back if/when I fix it, guessing I need to replace the LED housing near the socket.
