DIY: VW Golf Mk5 Dual Reverse Light

DIY: VW Golf Mk5 Dual Reverse Light

For some unknown reason european car manufacturers produced small hatches with a single reverse light. The VW Golf MK5 styling is excellent however it leaves a lot to be desired when trying to park at night time. This DIY will show you how to retrofit the rear fog light to become a secondary reverse light, add our high output Remnant Reverse LEDs in and you will literally make night, day.

Tools and materials required

  • 120cm of well insulated electrical wire. (Look for 16gauge wire or wire labelled “automotive”) -Length may vary, we use 200cm initially and cut the excess later.)
  • Electrical tape
  • Wire stripper/knife
  • Soldering iron (highly recommend, can be done without)
  • Silicon, hot glue or quick dry super glue
  • Phillips head and flathead screw driver
  • 10mm socket
  • Pliers/Dremel
  • cable/zip ties
  • (For best results our custom designed Remnant Reverse is 3X brighter per halogen bulb.)
