Front Dome Light Replacement.

Post by Old Salt » Sat Feb 20, 2021 1:23 pm

I have bought a complete set of LED interior lights. I have managed to swap out all of them except for the front dome/map lights. I just can't see how to gain access to the OEM bulbs. There is a pull off panel that gives access to the two T20 screws which leaves the switch and lamps panel loose. However I can't work out what to do to release the panel at the front. The cameras and sensors cover can be unclipped, but I fear it will break something if I force it. Has anyone been able to achieve this?
My Tiguan is a 18 reg SE Nav.

Hi Steve, that's exactly the correct diagram. Thank you very much.
It seems I was following the wrong method. YouTube videos don't always have every possible trim version.

Many thanks Steve, job done and all LED's are Canbus compatible and working perfectly with normal fade to off.
