My sticker has no monetary deductions on it either. But when I run my VIN nothing comes up. Is anyone else in this situation and what have they done?
      I'm in the same boat. The recall doesn't come up because we're ineligible for the fix. I believe ours was deactivated by the dealership. The last hope is to actually talk to a VW technician and see if they'd hook it back up as a side job? This would cost you $$ though

      Just pulled out my window sticker to see if the $150 credit is on it. Sure enough it is so looks like I'm sol.

      our window sticker still has the ambient lighting listed and no $150 credit. It can disabled. Should I wait to get some sort of notice?

      I took my 2018 Tiguan SE in today for the 60D8 recall letter I received. They told me they completed the recall today on my invoice. Waited till the sun went down, started the car, ensures the headlights were on, but no lights on the sunroof. Looked at the infotainment settings and no ambient lighting options for the sunroof. Will call them tomorrow and see if they maybe they just forgot to update the software and only replaced the 3 parts listed on the invoice.

      here in Canada also. I've checked with the service consultant, he is saying "I checked your vehicle, unfortunately your vehicle was not in service during the recall 60d1. As a result for all those vehicles VW has permanently disabled that feature in all tiguans during that time."

      I took mine back and they updated the software to show the rooftop lighting option under light settings. So if you take yours in make sure they install the update and option shows before you drive off.
