  1. Estate rear light removal 
    #1
    LeFrog Guest

    Does anyone have good info on how to remove the rear lights. I have removed the boot trim and can release the outer part of the light cluster (2 sprung clips visible from the inside ) but can find no way to release the inner part next to the boot lid rubber trim.

    There is a very slim reflector hidden when the boot is shut - does this hide some sort of retainer ???? if it does it doesn't seem to want to unclip.

    The lights need to come out to access screws to remove bumper to fit tow bar.

    Any help or ideas would be much appreciated.

    Many thanks for your reply, I managed to find a good description on a towbar manufacturers website and it was just as you described and I managed to do it about 2/3 weeks ago.

    Unclipping the panels on the tail gate only gives access to tailgate lights. How do you get at the main rear cluster which conceals the bumper fixing screws?

    Does anybody now what the wirin is for a trailer on a Passat estate? I have a B6 in bits at the moment, I've bolted the bar on, and I'm having problems finding out which wire does what in the rear lights.

    Cheers

    Thanks for the advice Martin I've just wired it all up and everything works, except the sidelights, I've got a chattering relay, so either the relay's bad, I need one of those smart-relays that are cluttering up eBay these days, or I've done something wrong.

    Do you know if a smart relay is needed (I'm guessing that the sidelight is just a pulsed feed of the brake light, which is why the relay is clicking in and out).

    Cheers
