    Hi, i also use that LED 5NA94...... and an 2.5mm flex fiber tube. I don't know why but that bright is too low. hmm maybee need an old not useable door panel with B&O light and strip that down to see what is in there.

    To bring ambient to run i sit a lot of moments in and search for the right coding and adapting. I was so sure that it must be possible to run because the pins and coding option was there.

    Yea B&O was the most time needing retrofit i done yet.

    Already tried pulling out the fiber tube from an old b&O door, the fiber just broke its not flexible at all. i ordered this one on the photo last week. Other member Iarbel came with this and fixed it in the Alutrim above the glovebox believe it’s used in the new Passat or Tiguan for the panoroof Hope to use this in the b&o speakers

    Hi everybody,

    Can anyone tell which fibre optic tube works best for illuminating the rear B&O speakers?
    tried some side-glow fibre from aliexpress but this didn't glow enough.
    tried the Tiguan / Passat fibre from volkswagen this also didn't glowed enough
    I use the same led module as the ones in the front door cards

    maybe rob2k68 or gsrsilver can shed some led light on this matter?

    After having the bits for several months, yesterday I actually got around to completing the fitting of the rear speaker illumination, thanks to @T-1000 for suggesting this fibre optic cable, previously tried a couple of others from ebay which weren't very good, but found this cable to be the best of the bunch.

    I take it you are referring to the rear door, if so then there doesn't appear to be a pin assigned for the rear speaker illumination, although a member on here found a way to do it (look earlier in this thread). If you have ambient lighting then the feed can be taken off the door handle light, this is the way I done it and seems to be the most popular method. Reading through all this thread will probably answer all your questions.

    No, I’m asking for front doors. I want to use that power source to retrofit ambient light and to have control on MMI.

    @michelhaudia38v Do you happen to have the translated instructions for coding the read door modules for the rear B&O lighting ... I only have access to an OBDeleven at the moment and am struggling . At the moment I have the strips paired with the B&O and the live going to pin 3 on the door module I did this all about a year ago and I just removed on of the rear door cards to confirm .

    I think I have everything I have added the rear 2 door modules to my list and have ambient lighting turned on they work if I run a test and have the door dimmer in the MMI
    Be great if you could help =)

    Feeling guilty I was already working on it :

    I only have Obdeleven and jumped in my history of Adaptions of 09 central electronics what I did back then:
    So in 09 i made adaption in "vw modus" don't know why , I think just secured access would also do.
    press "adaptions"

    there search for "interior light, light configuration" , within this change the following:

    ambiente_applikationleisten_in_tuertafel
    new value : installed

    Then one step back and search for" int.light, 2nd generation", within this change the following:


    Farbausgabe Tuertafelbeleuchtung nicht berechnen
    new value: not active

    Helligkeit Tuertafelbeleuchtung nicht berechnen
    new value: not active

    Tuertafelbeleuchtung mehrfarbig
    new value : not active

    That should do it , its been a while since I did it, I will check the pdf and the German instructions again in case I missed something

    Keep in mind that you have to open and close the doors and swivel the dimmer wheel to make it alive the first time ...

    Don't know if its important, since the only one that is checked, are the panel lights. The other ones are also present and working in my car....

    See I am very confused now.

    If I in theory plug in the rear led lights in the corresponding pins I used for the front two doors, and enable the lighting via OBDEleven it should work correct?

    You should be able to code the rear modules to be able to use led lighting and use the same pins as the front doors.

    Hello!

    Please, can anyone write down the perfect sideglow stripes for B&O grills in the back doors?
    @Rob2k68 and @gsrsilver @T-1000 , you have the best solution, but are they also avaliable today? On ebay, there is a big offer, but i do not know, if they works perfect as yours.
    I bought the 3mm from "leds-and-more", but without mounting it in the door and only a freeair check shows a poor result. Not bright, crispy, the first 5cm brighter than the rest, and an color-change to yellow after 10cm for 5 cm. I use the orig. LED-module which is in the front.

    Please help me.

    @michelhaudia38v , did you find the perfect stripes? You searched also a lot of time.
    @deepy , you got stripes from @T-1000? Or did he gave you a exact hint and link, which one you should buy?

    thanks to all!

    Hi Gecko,

    The problem with your question lies in that word “perfect”. I’ve tried several side glow fibers, but kinda gave up. The last one i used was, recommended by T-1000, was the best of all. Link:

    https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Fibre-Op...1-1-5-2-2-5-3mm-Dia-Light-Guide-/231917439525

    The result was best described as : i can live with it

    Its just nearly oem, not the perfect overal equal illuminated glow.

    I tried pulling the original light emitting plastic piece from a spare b&o front doorcard I have , but this broke. I think you have to dismantle al the layers of the doorcard , then with a heat gun reform the lightpipe for the rear speakers . Then getting that in the rear speakers without breaking it. Too much work

    Hi guys!

    Thanks for your input!

    @michelhaudia38v : yes, its too much to "transplant" the orig. strip from an 2nd front panel to the rear panel. The orig. strip looks like hard glass, and is not smooth like the other strips.
    My strip, coming from "leds-and-more.de" looks exactly like the strips from your ebay-link.
    https://www.leds-and-more.de/catalo...p-1938.html?osCsid=5fhkts78355jcornqet7poa8j0
    Not homogen, crispy like air bubbels inside.
    Ok, maybe it is only a picture on ebay, and in real it is different!?
    What was the problem with your tested 5NA947220A strip? You wrote it was not good enough? You testet it with cutoff the Passat LED-Modul and with the orig. Audi LED-Modul, correct?

    @gsrsilver : on page 2, you show 2 pics. OK the first looks little bit blue (i think this made the camera), and the second pics looks for me perfect! What exactly did you use? Also the Passat OEM strip 5NA947220A? Complete with Passat LED-Module, or modified (cut) with orig. Audi LED-Module? I ask, because @michelhaudia38v wrote in an other post, he tried the 5NA947220A and that was is not so good!? But your 2nd pics in this thread on page 2 looks great and like orig.!

    Also the pics coming from @Rob2k68 looks very very good and orig.!
    Also this pic here, coming from @T-1000 looks very good! https://www.audi-sport.net/xf/threads/b-o-ambient-lightning.422572/

    thanks for additional input!

    regards
    Gecko
