DIY: VW Golf R City

Disclaimer: I, nor anybody else is for anything that happens, to your car, anybody you or whatever else. There is NO on this. Proceed at YOUR OWN This worked for me, my car still and I’m still alive.

take the time to read the wall of text as it can possibly understand what needs to be and give you a general idea of to do before you begin, although not complicated, it might answer questions and prevent some

Info for understanding:

The Golf R did not with the wiring to on the car-side harness that is needed to the city lights, like the GTI therefore no matter what you do in VCDS, it simply won’t because the wire to light up is not there. BUT . since the headlight is shared among other VW the bulb, and everything else on the side, is there. So as you might guessed, you have to add a wire to the headlight harness to communicate the correct pin in headlight. The pin on the harness controls the city lights is

To power on the city lights . you the option to get power from the OR from the daytime running (DRL)

This DIY is based on the side-markers as the power source.


What will the end be?

Considering NO VCDS coding were done:

If you get power the side-markers . The city lights be on in any situation the side markers

With original US Spec switch in headlight position On, Dimmed DRL On, City Lights On, Markers On, Tail-Lights On

With the switch in parking position: DRL On, City Lights On, Side On, Tail-Lights On.

If you get power from the running lights (DRL) The lights will essentially be on the DRL are on which is most of, if not all the time driving.

It has been reported by people that removing the marker bulbs will NOT a code. If you prefer, remove and let us know. Yes, if you wire city lights there, still work with the bulbs removed.

What’s needed?

VW Repair Part #000 979 133 E (they in a pair and that’s all you need) local dealer or elsewhere.

** Some have mentioned now comes as a single wire. sure, if so, you’ll need two **

A pick tool(s)

T-25 bit liner screws]

Cloth [if you want to wrap the yellow to make it look oem]

I recommend picking up LED bulbs. sells nice OSRAM that match the DRL’s well.

What needs to be

Step 1:

The basics: Make ignition is off, lights cool engine, and if you want to get disconnect the battery.

Step 2:

with the wires you got, cut one end of the wire, on both wires.

with drivers side:


Disconnect the harness from the then take your and remove the green cap on pin #10

Step 4:

Take your again and poke a hole the green cap as you will want to put the through it.

Step 5:

Take wire and slide green cap on it the slimmer side of the cap towards the end the prongs. This might be an task, but keep doing it and it slide eventually. The more the cap the wire, the better.

Step 6:

Go to your disconnected headlight Look inside and you will see a sort of lock there needs to be unlocked.

Step 7:

your pick, or whatever, put it on the end of the pinkish lock, and slightly the pinkish plastic to the side. it out just enough so it’s with the opening on the side. If you too much, you might not be able to get the in.

Step 8:

Take a look at how the inside the harness are aligned.

the prong from your the same way, and put it inside the PIN #10 you took the green cap off from This might get tricky and you might need to move the lock back or forward a bit.

Once you feel like the bottomed out, or it sort of into place, push the lock back into and check that the prongs are at the like the rest. Give the a small tug, if it stays in and doesn’t move it’s

Step 9:

Slide down the cap as much as you can to fill the space, as a safety barrier. It won#146;t go too far in, but a bit is better than nothing at all

Step 10:

I would suggest the side markers from sides as this will you see the wires you will be working so that you know where all go. It’s easier to figure it out you know what’s what.


Moving on.

You can essentially do this inside the engine bay reaching in the wiring, drivers side easier in this part.

If you inside the engine bay and inside the you will see there is sort of a holding the wiring for the side-markers in you can just pull it off as it will you figure out where the wiring If you give it a small pull and you it, you will see its split from the harness which also the headlight connector. The wiring is around with self-adhesive tape it seems, the usual.

You can tap in right at the split from the harness, or follow the wire a bit. Tapping into the you should have enough + slack to not require any extra

You have a choice of using splices, soldering, or whatever you to do. You can use something like this:


OTHER COLOR is (I believe it was gray)

So you put that the live wire, put the yellow wire in the other hole, close, and that’s it.

Step 12:

the harness back to the headlight. battery if disconnected. Go to your turn the headlight switch to the on or parking light position and to see that the city lights are now lit up. doesn’t need to be started)

Finished wiring:


The passenger side is almost EXCEPT the side-marker wire is split from the main goes UNDER the headlight, so a bit tougher to get to. The repair wire be long enough for you to get it connected. the length of the wire to find a you can make it work. On passenger BROWN is also ground and wire is live.

Feel to ask any questions. If this helped don’t forget to say thanks, a long way. Support is appreciated
