3rd Brake Light

VW Logo light
Year(s):  88 +
Model/Type:  All

From:  John Meeks

Symptom(s):  Less than optimal brake light visibility

This light is from:

The Logo light wires go right thru the hole that the badge used for attachment. I spliced some zip cord right into the light assy at the passenger side brake light terminals and ran the cord up the side where the hatch seals to the body. I tacked the cord with RTV to hold it.

The cord goes up to the top right of the hatch where it follows the rear window heater wires into the hatch thru a grommet. Remove your hatch trim inside and you will be able to fish the wire down to the light.
