puddle lights fitted in 1 hour!
This is what i did and am taking no responsibility if you blow something, if you are nervous then disconnect the battery, but in all reality its simple
I just thought i would share the easy way to fit puddle lights. This only applies to cars with the red marker lights already fitted.
First of all i took a trip to my local scrap yard and removed the puddle lights from a couple of passats as the lights are the same ones. I got 6 in all for £10,(beats the 7.50 each from audi) 4 for the doors and 2 for the footwell lights.
Its a myth that you need to remove the door cards. i simply cut the puddle light hole out while on the car using a drill and stanley knife. Next step was to pop out the red light and then i poked through a length of garden wire from the red light hole to the puddle light hole and pulled the puddle light wire back through to the same hole that the red light fits in. next was to simply scotchlok the wires onto the ones for the red light. pop them back in. close the door and re open to check all is well. Note i didnt do any wire scotchlocking until each of the red lights had turned themselfs off, they do this after the door has been open about 5 mins.
In all i had all 4 done in 1 hour.
hope this helps someone
