I decided to install OEM lights to my door handles on the in side of my MKV R32. The one thing that Im really excited about is that i have converted the Red OEM light to Bright Blue LEDs. The Red OEM LEDs are very very dull and the ones Im going to install are very very Bright Blue and will light up the door handles very well. This will add a little more flavor to my R32 and go with the Blue Mood LED lights at the top of the roof on the interior as well.

Im posting a DIY for other to go by on here, but do NOT blame me if u brake or mess up something. Good Luck

So far Im just doing a test fit on how every thing comes together and will finish the DIY as i go for the nest few days.

Parts Numbers?????
Ill post them later when i find them....LOL

These are all the parts u will need to get from VW dealer

Wire all wired up with Blue LEDs and Resistors

Cout out a small square on the door cards to allow for the wire and connector to be visible.

I use tape to test fit the Clear Plexi to the door handle.

Then push the door handle into its slot on the door card. Once its in then make sure the clear plexi is still in the right place on the door handle and all lines up well with the cut out on the door card.

Now i can line up the wires and make sure they are long enough to wire up to the 32 pin connecter at the end of the harness.

Power go to empty Pin 17
Grond ties into Pin 21

Make sure u cut out the Long rectangle on the door handle with a dremel tool. I also used a digital measuring tool.

Ill be posting the finished product when i get the last few wire from the VW dealer. These wire pins will goto the 32 pin connecter and make it all look as OEM as possible. I think most people wont even tell the its not OEM.:w00t:

I dont like the Mini door handles as much as i do the VW interior door handles mood lights.

I also love the quality products from VW!!!!!!!!

I finally got to cut into the interior door handles and cut a small rectangle to insert the clear plexi piece.

Now im waiting on VW dealer to ship the wire to the 32 pin connecter to get the LEDs all powered up and grounded.

I should have them by tom or next day, once i get the wires il be able to finish up the DIY.

Here are a few pix

Thanks guys

Im still waiting on VW to receive my wires to finish the DIY.

Yes, I could just splice my factory wire and do it the way but i would like to keep my car as OEM as possible.
