    Thread: Jb's Offical Jetta6 HID/LED Bulb Guide

    1. 08-29-2011 07:08 PM #126
      Jb, thanks for getting this list started. There have been numerous changes and additions to the original list. Would you mind posting another draft of the original, listing all of the vehicle bulb types and your suggestion as to which brightness/led arrangement bulb to use in each application?

      Also, if you know of a similar listing for the JSW, please let us all in on that too. Thanks again!!!

      why would people want to change the taillight bulbs? or is it just in case one goes out?

      because led bulbs are much brighter....increase visiblity and if you tint them some what safer

      I got an entire set for my car on eBay for 15 bucks. No matter where you buy, they come from china all the same. Trust me.

      Did anyone tell you to buy the ones from ECS? NO. The cheep ones on ebay that arent canbus work just fine, just as everyone else has reported in the thread and at a cost of about $2. So congrats on paying $5 a piece.

      hey jb

      do you suggest 100 or 50 watt headlight bulbs? Also, would you say 5000k is a good temp for a pure white look? dont want blueish

      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
