other than removing the bumper and headlight is there any other way of accessing the driving 194 bulb? the h7 low beams were a pain and the drl's damn near impossible...

I chose them over the 5050 SMDs because I liked the look of these better but that being said, to each his own, also there are many more types and styles to chose from now, many more than there were before. I also have them in my license plate too. The ones I got look like this and have a white/purple tint (not purple purple don't worry).

I've had issues with lisence plate lights when installing some LED on my 2011 TDI, at first one of the lights wouldn't work so I replaced the original factory bulbs lights and even they aren't working now. Weird thing is shortly after I noticed the interior red "mood lights" at the dome lights weren't working and also the dimmer for the instrument controls aren't working?
Could the instrument control and red lights be a warning that there are lights out?? Thought this was a little far fetched but the only thing I could think of since these both happened about the same time?
I have a GLI so will these work?
i have regular ambers in there now but they arent bright enough with my HOEN 5000k low beams, they wash them out so i need brighter cities.

and then once you have the module out it makes it much easier ti pry the lens cover off.
alright so i got my kits in from ddm tuning now i have a question.....
how the bloody hell do you get the headlight bulbs in???????????????????????????????? i've tried for over an hour to get them locked in to place with the stock retainer and one i bought from ebay for h7 bulbs with zero luck!! is there a trick to it?
All I can say is make sure they are lined up correctly and push both sides with the tabs down as hard as you can and try to twist them in. It's how I did it and hopefully will never have to do it again.
Installed the v-led DLRs yesterday, thanks to Nekosaur's experience.
Install wasn't too bad, few tips:
- as you stick your hand into the assembly, look at the lights so you can see which one you're touching (should be obvious but helps, also when trying to put the LEDs back in)
- the bulb housing, if you'd look at it from the front, or back, have plastic tabs you use to twist on three sides ( like this -| ). Take note of what orientation these have before you pull it out, that will help when putting it back in, so you start out at the right place.
- obvious, but test your new bulbs before you try to put them back in
I found the driver side harder to remove, I guess it all depends on the size of your hand.
Love the 5w look, it's not too bright to look cheesy, but still serves well as DLR
I picked up my new 2012 Jetta a few days ago and I'd like to upgrade my low-beam bulbs. In my last car (Honda Accord) I installed Sylvania Silverstar Ultra's and they were a big improvement for my old eyes that don't see as well at night as they used to.
My question is, does the 2012 Jetta use the same H7 type bulb as the 2011 Jetta did?
I bought the Silverstar Ultra's off of Amazon and when I went to the same page they show that the H7 bulb is compatible with the 2011 Jetta but not compatible with the 2012. Is that correct? I was under the impression there were no changes from 2011 to 2012.
If the H7 is not the correct bulb type for the 2012 Jetta can anyone tell me which type of Silverstar Ultra (or similar) bulb would fit?
Thank you very much for any insight on this question!
