Rear break light
« on: 10 June 2018, 11:56 »
Hi all,
I have just bought a 2011 Gti DSG. When cleaning it yesterday I noticed the plastic cover of the center break light in the spoiler (hoping it’s just the cover and not the whole unit) has cracked. it’s still all in place and not visible unless you look closely hence just noticing it 4 days into ownership.
Any ideas on how to fix this and where to get the part from. Had a look on eBay and can only see the whole thing for £40+

Thanks

This might be useful for removal and replacing the part, once you’ve found a replacement;
