I used: 6L0 947 415 - Lights x2

If you decide to use the TT boot lights instead of the above ones then you will need:[/b]
4B0 947 415A Lights x2 (same as the one in the boot / glovebox)
Hi Gizmo68
- can you remember what the dealer prices are for the light units please ?

well I 'would' have fitted them but dealer ordered the plastic housing for the end of the cable that plugs into the light instaed of the actual short cable itself :(

When I ordered the lamp housing I expected to have to get leds off ebay but in fact the housings came with a mini led pcb inside so the lamp was all ready to go which was an unexpected bonus.
When I checked which was +ve and -ve between the lamp pins I found that connecting one way lit the led white and reversing the connection lit it red. (I will consider a way to make use of that later.)

Gizmo68 - when the lamps are fitted to CECM pin 50 and DIS enabled etc do the lamps only come on when eg door opened or can they be set to be on even when driving and also dimmed?

When wired to the CECM (and once activated with VCDS) you then have the option of them being on whenever the sidelights or headlights are on, you can adjust the brightness of them in the DIS.
Alternatively they can be turned off and just used when a door is opened.

cheers Gizmo68, superb guide and all done. No pics because I didnt feel anything was any different to whats already available on this thread.

Main point to reiterate was the part number for the footwell lights with LED included

I got 8J0 947 409 £7.17 + VAT

I used the same unit to replace my existing incandescent boot light.

No worries glad it was of use [smiley=cheers.gif]

I did contemplate buying the OE LED's but since I had already obtained (FOC) 5 of the 6 lights necessary to do the footwells, puddle and marker lights and had a few suitable LED's already I thought it was a bit pointless.

Thought I would add some better(ish) photo's taken with a proper camera this time - but still the same crap photographer though so don't expect too much :lol:

LED footwell, LED puddle and OE W5W marker lights


+ LED interior lights


Plus today's addition of 2x 3mm (5000MCD) LED's in the interior light housing.


Despite them looking pink in this photo, I can assure you they are not :lol:

Not as such no, if you look closely you can see the map light chrome rings:


They are placed in the same position as the OE ones, however the OE ones are a fairly dim SMD light whereas the LED's I used were brighter - they are still recessed behind the trim and cannot be seen until the sidelights are turned on.

The power for them was taken from pin 5 (blue/grey) and the earth from pin 1 (brown)

Hi,
i just figure it out by randomly guessing the Connector D and Connector B. Finally my car was on Pin 7 on Connector B somehow share the same as Audi A3 8P, most of the guys were talkin bout the Connector D pin9. but in my case, is wasnt.

So far it works fine including the control via DIS. One thing disappoint me is the FWLight did not operate same as my previous scirocco, which the light will turn on all the time (at night) and when the door is opened.

Hi,

my car does not comes with any ambient light. is there a part number where it cames originally with LED lighting? i wish to retrofit these as well.

possible to DIY myself with some SMD light which is as bright as the OEM or maybe little brighter?
