      Remove the lower center grill.

      Then the fog light grills each, and then you can un screw the hhousing for the fogs and change the bulb.

      The grills all pop out, use a plastic molding remover if you have one of something that wont scratch the paint and grill.

      Hey guys,

      I appreciate all of this information and I went out and replaced almost all of my bulbs. everything works but now my information system keeps telling me to check my DRL's, low beams, license plate lights, etc. along with the bulb indicator staying on. any information on that? keep in mind all my bulbs are working....thanks for the time.

      opps my bad, I just know this from when I installed my fogs.
      The best way to figure this out correctly (and Im assuming like jorge said) is this poorly written little book more than likely in your glove box.

      Will I replaced everything you did EXCEPT the headlights, so my assumption is that it would be those as I have not had any problems with the ones I replaced. Did you use the LED headlight bulbs? or the halagon bulbs.

      Did you do the side markers also? If so those are canbus bulbs and that might be your problem also.

      no side markers, and yes i used led bulbs for the headlights. but its tellin me to check my low beams (headlights) and my license plate bulbs (which work and look great). so i dunno, im thinkin about just dealing with it.

      I have a feeling its the LED headlights. On a side note, how do you see with those, Ive been told the light output is extremely low and that they "look" good but are useless.

      As far as the License plate lights go i dont know, I also installed everything but the Low beams and havent gotten any errors. Try putting in the oem low beams and see if that clears the issue

      Sorry, i didnt do those ones as when I did all my LEDs I didnt have the euro switch so they only came on with the ignition off, which would be pointless. But now I might since I have the switch. Let us know if you figure it out.

      Have you checked the manual?

      Yeah the LED headlights look great but oyu cant see anything, they're strictly for cosmetic purposes...you cant see ANYTHING with them in a dark areas, I count on street lights a lot. which is why im alsways looking for someone to tell me what HID's to buy. cuz those jetta 2-piece bulbs mess everything up.

      can you tell me about the HID's you got cuz none of the ones I am finding will fit with tis 2 piece factory bulb set up. The ones i get plug in and work fine, but they dont click into place because that factory bulb is some weird 2 piece arrangement ive never seen before.

      Ok Sean, what bulbs did you get, I like the look on your car. I am thinking of doing the drls, city, and HL. I want to get some more powerful foglight bulbs too. Any help, I would appreciate it man.

    20. 09-22-2011 12:05 AM #161
      Did you already get my number? As u can see I suck at postingand taking pics. Nokia h7, piaa 1156 bulbs, gotta look at boxes for rest. Overall I paid 130 for 5 sets. Very happy cause I got free installation. That's how easy it is to install.....

      Easy? Apparently I got robbed then because when I got my HID's installed everyone at the shop told me that this car was a pain in the a** to do. I paid 150 for the HID's and installation.

      Here's a before and after on mines. The bulb looms exactly like that but I bought mines at a local shop. No warning for me.

      Check Amazon.
      On the first page of this thread, there is a break down of the particular bulbs, and locations. You can get some from Ebay, and several other online distributors. Or if you have a local shop, you can try there too.

      I ordered mine from Amazon. Just plugged in the numbers, like H7, 1156, T10, etc. etc...and went from there.

      does any one know how to replace the city lights? like i know i have to go in the high beam compartment but it seems impossible taking the bulb out of the socket as my hands can barely reach it. And if I do i dont know if i would even be able to put them back in. Is there an easier way?

      i have a question regarding the tag lights.. i purchased come off of ebay and installed them. other than them blowing the fuse they work fine. the problem i have is that the house for both lights faces outwards so the light gets pointed in one direction:

      these are the lights i bought.

      has anyone else noticed this? have you guys bought any that maybe curve straight down? or simply found a way to turn the left housing so the light shines to the right?
