1 to 2 amp fuse is good enough and a waterproof fuse holder, they don't look like LED ones but the same as per guide.

Very little problems?
Mine have arrived but as normal with Chinese wiring it's so thin, did you have any problems stripping and putting the fuse in?

Maybe you just need a decent set of wire strippers.

You need to leave the auto strippers and get a proper set of cutters ;)

Just been reading your how to guide and what you have done to your Tig is absolutely fantastic (VW should feel ashamed for not including these as standard, especially on the R LIne).

I'd love to have these puddle lights on my own Tiguan but don't have the required technical ability to carry out the mods so any ideas where I could get it done would be most welcome

 

Thanks

 

Ian

I couldn't agree more that they should be standard fit espeacilly on the high end cars. I am going to fit a set to my Passat SE inc front and rear footwell lights.

Unfortunately not I'm afraid, seems to be the way of the world, gone are the days when I use to like working out ways of installing alarms in CanBus cars when the manufacturer wanted silly money for it and then said they couldn't retrofit and standard alarms couldn't be installed happy days lol
