    HI, I've replaced my 2015 SEL TDI with 2017 SEL Premium TSI. The DRL indicator on the dash does not come on (day or night) but I can see it is there when light shines on it. In the 2015 DRL light would be on whenever DRLs where on and that way I knew if I was showing/using DRLs or full...

    Periodically the DRL out warning light in the dash comes on. I've checked several times and each time both bulbs are burning. :confused: Also the right side mirror does not lower in reverse. I've turned it on and off several times and nothing

    New member here. As well as new passat owner. I was wondering if anyone has tried making the fog lights the dress instead of the low beam headlights. Could it be as easy as switching the connectors on the back of the headlight switch? Thanks P.S working on a 02 5.5
