    What the hell am i doing wrong? DRL light change..l

    Ok so to cut a long story short i got some LED drl's of andy on here , happy days.

    Im outside trying to fit them now.. Dipped beams peice of piss but the drl's under the dipped will not move!

    And i mean at all! I felt a litle clip under but that did fudge all! Removed my arch and it still wouldnt come.. cant see the whole light unit moving aswell!

    Sick of trying to remove it ripped my hand to 1000 bits!

    The cars a 58 plate btw.

    So my cars now sat on jacks with no arch looking sorry for itself... What am i doing wrong? Ive wiggled it , pulled it , yanked the wire done the lot! NOTHING works!

    The dipped and main beam are a simple twist any off but the drls...

    They are tucked away in a bottom corner with an odd system that i cant figure out , Just wont come no matter what! Doesn't help when you cant see down there either !

    Hey Alex, just a quick question, i think i have the same lights as you on my 60 reg. i don't have any LED lights, and my DRL's are the crappy yellow glow ones. are these LED ones plug and play, or was there any modding needed? it may be too early to tell, but do you know if these are error free as well? mines a 1.6 TDI Sportback SE but i assumed we have the same front lights.

    ah, i've already had a good few looks at yours Alex, its going very nicely. although i've noticed apart from the earliest pics, non of them show your wheels :P

    have you changed the main bulbs as well? i'm thinking if i just upgrade my DRL's to led, but leave the stock dipped bulbs in, it will look very obvious.

    out of interest, when you get your air, what are you doing with your old suspension? yours looks like its a Sport, and i've been looking for some sport springs to lower my SE.

    plezz.
