      Which specific 194s did you use in your Jetta (please include link to website) for the city/parking bulb? I ordered some 194s (http://www.hidxenonlights.com/led-ca...ror-free-p-712) that I am using for my license plate lights and I decided to pop one out and try it in the bulb holder for the city/parking light and it didn't fit. Even though it's a wedge-type bulb, the base is too thick for this particular bulb holder. Any guidance you can provide it appreciated.

      Ebay. Find a USA seller and you can get bulbs to your door in less then a week. Search 194 5 SMD LED

      Like so: click

      You need (7) 194 bulbs total.

      The last ba15s I put in might be the culprit. It wasn't clicking in like I would expect. I might order another pair from super bright as they are local to me.

      What location are those ba15s?

      I am guessing inner running and reverse lights. If that is the case, then absolutely the cause.

      Thank you sir for the info. This thread however was not a generic Mk6 platform thread, it was geared towards the Jetta6 only, that is why there was no Golf or JSW info posted.

      Exactly as documented. I used the super bright leds first. Will probably order more as they are local and reasonably priced.

      thumbs up.. thanks for a great guide. just what I was looking for. planning on replacing all bulbs with LEDs.

      heads and fogs, I'm going to try the Philips Crystal Vision Ultra. Love the look of HIDs, but if i do them again, i think I may retrofit projectors... unsure at this point.. but thanks!!!

      Hi guys

      I am new in this forum ... soon I will do my presentation .. I am from Argentina ...
      I have a Jetta 2.0T DSG and I've started to change the lights ...
      I've already changed some lights like city, license plate and DRL.
      I have Xenon in my headlight and I want to change my fog lights ...

      What kind of light I should put in my fog lights ?

      Well, thanks a lot !!!!

      Swapped out interior, trunk, license plate and drl LEDs, everything was easy but the drl's, need to have skinny hands! What a pain, but is finally done!

      I have followed the guide to the "T" (DRL LEDs, Parking/City Lights LEDs, License Plate LEDs) and everything has been fine for 2 months. Today, I got a bulb out error and I don't have the slightest idea why? Any thoughts.

      Btw, if I turn the car off and back on again, the indicator goes off.

      Do you remember what bulbs you used for all your headlights? Or even where you got them?

      this might be a dumb question but HOW do you change the drl ?

      would i have to take out the whole headlight assembly and change it or could i just do it in the engine bay ?

      what kind of equipment would i need ?
