      I hope someone else chimes in who knows more about Mk5 Rabbit/Golf tail light wiring than I do. But what you're describing sounds like the pulse-code modulation (PCM) technology used in North...

      Ummm, you may be right. At first glance I thought the German web site said ("außer Nebel- und Rückfahrleuchte") that they didn't have fog- or reverse light. Which is how they look, though they're...

      Wow, I love the German-to-English translation sent by the seller!! :P

      As you may know, for North America, the Mk5 Jetta tail lights had 4 wires (counting the ground). And the European LED Jetta...

      I can't help much specifically, but I can keep you from going in some wrong directions:

      1) Since your car is a European-model Mk5 Golf GTI (what year -- 2009 or earlier?), it certainly does NOT...

      And it only works with 2010 Mk5 Jettas, which have different electronics than the 2005-2009 models.

      VAG-COM is the only option for those of us with the earlier models.

      Wouldn't hurt to try there. I'd just let them know up-front why I'm posting there -- the fact that your 2010 Jetta looks like a Mk5, but has the electronics of a Mk6.

      The recall that I think owenmarshall is referring to is Service Action 97AM. But it only affected 2009 Jettas, and the symptom is that all the lights on the passenger side (only) stop working:

      Oh... maybe. Housings on Mk5's are the same for RHD vs. LHD countries, I'm pretty sure... except for being mirror-image (pun intended).

      But I suspect the OP, being in Croatia, is either looking...

      I believe all Mk5 mirrors in Europe -- which is going to be what you're interested in -- were the same left and right. They were all (again, I believe) the aspherical type, that weren't standard...

      Well, I think the "tape" method for your headlights would only work if you had older headlights with a vertical lens. The black tape just covers up the portion of the Fresnel fluting that forms the...

      OK, there are (at least) two issues here.

      First, the instructions you're referencing here only apply for sure to 2009 and earlier Mk5's. Your 2010 Jetta looks like a Mk5, but it has Mk6...

      Yup, I'm well-aware of how coolant smells. Never a good sign if you smell it around the car. :)

      The biggest build-up I've found, if it's relatively-wet snow, is behind each of the tires -- hanging down below the wheel well in a crescent shape to within a fraction of an inch of the tire. I can...

      Yup. Imagine that -- state inspection stations have wised up to the fact that owners with faulty emissions systems will try to clear the codes just before coming in for the test. :rolleyes:
