Fog Lights - 2006 VW Jetta GLI 2.0T FSI
How to change your fog light bulbs on your 2006 VW GLI or GTI. First of all, we need to address the replacement light bulbs. On the USA market GLI/GTI's we are seeing 9006 Bulbs. There are aftermarket jetta kits that have hit the market, and they are coming with H11 bulbs. There have been factory MKV's that have come with H11 or 9006 bulbs. The only way to be 100% sure is to open yours up first. It should take no more than 15 minutes to check them.
Let's start by removing the set screw on the lower panel.
Put a finger in the hole where the screw came out. Above it is a recessed area that you can use to pull the cover off.
Here you can see the fog light with the cover removed. It's held in by 3 philips screws.
Remove the screws, and you will see the connector in the back. Squeeze the connector and the plug will pull off.
Twist the bulb counter clock-wise. If it doesn't move, use some pliars for leverage. Don't squeeze on the connector, but only use the pliars to help twist the bulb.
Ahhhh, much better! I like this setup for when it snows or is really rainy out. Sometimes the HID lighting can create more glare, so I run a euroswitch to allow just the parking and fogs to be on. The yellow bulbs are from European Autosport. Great long lasting bulbs that I've used in other cars before. They not only have the yellow bulbs, but they also have the HID matching bulbs.
