deAutoKey LED kit Install
Compliments of DT EXP @ vwvortex.com
Got around to do my LED kit install from deAutokey.com
(4) Dome LEDs
(2) Sun Visor LEDs
(1) Trunk LED
(1) Glove Box LED
and I bought the LED License Plate lights
Car: 2009 VW Tiguan S, Non-Sunroof model
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
Lights from deAutoKey
Two issues I ran across: One Minor and One Major
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 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.
Rear Dome Light
Use your Trim tool to work around the Unit.. Easier to work both sides out at the same time
Picture of the Clip point on the Head Liner
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
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.
from my cell phone, I will try to get better shots tomorrow night.
Replaced the Ziza city lights with to my two extras.. Just for kicks... they look better...
Fun fact I learned tonight.. I can't turn off my gauge door opener light for more than 10 second.. I tried for like 12 mins.. /sigh
here are some rushed shots.. Racing the light and its like 29 outside...
Same light set on the touareg.
