    Issues with refitting puddle lights in back doors.

    Hi!

    I've just changed the bulbs in my puddle lights from regular to LED.

    Pretty easy job, but it's a real pain to refit the light! The light is supposed to be connected to the wire in the door, but the wire is so short, that i can't connect it!

    Does anybody know any tricks?

    Seems like I must remove the door cards...

    I had the same problem. Iirc as it was a long time ago,I believe I used a pair of long nose pliers and pulling the cable as much as I dared.
    As you have said, only other option is to pull the bottom of the door card away to get at it, should only be a few torque screws

    Thanks, mate!
    I don't dare to pull any more on the connector

    Stupid germans... I can't figure out the reason for making the wires so ****ing short!
