    If you have vcds, then it tells you within the popup coding helper, what is represented with specific coding.

    Chris, come on lad, you should have that sorted by now.

    Well if you had levelling it would be module 55, but you also need to go into 09 to code the headlights to the car.

    I thought it has to have washer jets and possibly levelling.

    Nigel still ain't sorted my xenons. Too busy at work. Is there anyone in or near Leicester that you can recommend?

    So as an mot tester, you've passed your car for mot illegally, thats a question, not an accusation.

    ohh man havent you fixed it yet :D thought ive helped to how to do few months ago from the links i gave you :P
    it is Very easy mate i promis u it will take a bout 40min work or less if the front bumper is off

    i did retro fit mine from halogen to bixenon,
    so what youre saying is.
    When you have the High beam does not work and you get a warning?
    if it is that then you have connected them wrong, or coded them wrong.
    the 2 small yellow pins must be connected rigth for the highbeam to work. and also the code must be right.
    use this code and dont change the thre first codes in VAG
    Euro Headlights & DRL
    Module 09 (Central Electrical), recode to ###21


    i think the origininal code for the halogen is 01012

    If u have the code 21 then the lights work but if not the hight beam then you have connected the small yellow pins wrong. i did it to after changing it it worked like a charm :D
    Very easy mate took my about 1hr the first time i did it :D
