the slots on the front just pop out but do it carfully (PUN)  behind them is polystyrene  inserts these also pull out ,lights should just pop in  insert cables first and use cable ties to keep cable away from and moving parts on the Engine   then wire up as per the instructions  tbh i had an auto electrician wire mine up took him 10 mins but was done correctly

Are you in Southampton @MjCarr? I'm assuming you must be fairly local to me as you're based in Hampshire and got a Saints logo for an avatar!

If you can't figure it out, I might be able to find an hour or so to have a look and give you some guidance.

to fit them you need to find a live in the fuse box that only come's on when the key is turn too on . and then find the dip head lights wire . job done 1 hour

Jamie, use a mini fuse tap into fuse 42 in the engine bay fuse box near the battery then use a scotch block (sometimes called a wire tap) and put your drls white (or blue depending on which you have) wire into the terminated side and put either the sidelight or headlight wire into the thru side.

I made mine dim with dipped beam which was (I think) the purple and green wire.

Full details of my installation are in my build thread (link in my signature or search for "things I'd like to do to my mk3")

Great news DRLs are fitted, wired & working!

So so pleased they're on 😁

Just ordered smoked rear LED lenses and looking at :

headlamp/bulb upgrade

Front & rear cameras

Front sensors

Carbon fibre wrap parts of dash/interior

Have been advised against the 8in. Android update for the centre console so will see if anything else is out there.

I have also fitted these exact one to my car myself. Very easy. Although the expect to replace them quite often. I'll be on my 3rd set soon. Seems these aren't built to last very long. But they do look good when working.

Looking for local help in Sounthampton, anyone able to help fit these i'm not overly confident to fit them.

Sorry I'm not close enough, but I have a full guide with pics available on my build thread. I'm more than happy to answer any questions you have and if you're using a scotch lock for the dimming wire and a fuse tap for the live, you will have to work very hard to damage your car!

At the very worst, if you get it wrong maybe your DRLs won't quite work so you come back and tell us what you did and we can help you fix it tomorrow!
