    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 ...

    This was exactly the same situation when I did this coding , front over the B&O and the rear ambient strips on the pin and working in test mode . Dimmers available in the mmi

    also find this one , its in long coding of 09 byte 17
    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.

    Those fiber optic lights are white correct?
