Jetta 6 Foot Well Lighting : Original VW Tungsten Bulb Kit

Retrofitting the footwell lights on the Jetta 6 is technicall impossible as VW have not designed the Jetta6 with footwell lighting.

There is no provision to install the lights for the front footwell on the passenger or driver side.  However, on the seats, there is a hole provided on the seat base made by VW by default.

Even on the wiring diagrams, there are no circuits provided for the Jetta to install the footwell lights.  So techically, the footwell lights on the Jetta 6 do not exist and would not work.

We found a way around this....install all the front footwell lights and also get the MFD to control the ambience lighting whilst driving....i.e. you can dim the footwell lights down from full bright 100% to 10%

Control of Ambience Light via Footwell light from the MFD screen
