(4) Dome LEDs 

(2) Sun Visor LEDs 

(1) Trunk LED 

(1) Glove Box LED 


Cost $55


and I bought the LED License Plate lights


Cost $40


Car: 2009 VW Tiguan S, Non-Sunroof model


Tools Used/Needed


Dash Trim Removal Tool


One T15 triple Square

needle nose pliers

Canon Rebel 50mm and my Cell phone for pictures


Total time 30 minutes



the kit itself is well put together






I also got a baggy of "extras" which is a super nice touch.


Lets get started!

LED License Plate light


OEM



Lights from deAutoKey






Two issues I ran across: One Minor and One Major


The Minor:

One unit is came to me used, or at least has been installed at least one time before


(you can see the damage to the screw holes, nothing earth breaking)


The Major:

The other Unit was DOA so I will be testing out there life time warranty sooner then I had thought :-P 


OEM unit removed



New unit installed:



Note: the either units female connectors gave me a strong "click" from the OEM harness. But seems in there well enough.


Truck Light:


Old Bulb


New Bulb





Rear Dome Light



Use your Trim tool to work around the Unit.. Easier to work both sides out at the same time

Dome Unit



User your Pliers to bend the metal cover out of the way.





Reinstall is easy!




front Dome Light





Once that cover is popped out, you will need your T15





Clip points:



Drop the Unit:




Removing the OEM bulbs




Make sure you testing the Bulbs before you reinstall the Dome Unit. Its 50/50 that your +/- are right on your new bulbs


Glove box light








Please note: Do not side the LED unit ALL THE WAY TO THE BOTTLE of the Housing. It will not a have solid connect to the power point ( was the same way on my Treg)




Sun Visor lights.


Clip point is the Side closest to the door








and we are done! 


I have two leftover LED from dome light kit.. not sure what they were meant for. I will get some pictures of in the dark tonight.
