It isn't only a Mk6 Golf problem as the same type of light is fitted to other models.

I've had an error code for a few months. The indictor strip light works on both mirrors so I haven't really bothered about it. Last week I noticed the light in the drivers door the one with the fault code isn't as bright. VW in there stupid wisdom don't show these LED bulbs as a replacement item you have to buy a new light unit. I was going to count the number of LED lights when I went out today but I forgot. I think there are 5 or 6.

Turn signal indicator right - 5K0 949 102 - £32.53

This is stupid you have to buy a new light if the bulb goes, I believe its the same for the rear fog light LED which you don't use in USA.

I've Googled LED amber bulb strip 12v. There are sellers on fleabay

As no one tried these LED strips?

The Ministry of Transport (MOT) test is due at the end of month so it looks like I will have to buy a new unit. This is another reason I shouldn't have bought a VW. Along with Dual Mass Flywheel (DMF), Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) and the drivers seat.

I have matched up different LED units from other units third brake light and amber corners in the past and was successful with swaps .....in this case it's TBD but most likely the same crap.

Worth taking apart, maybe you find corrosion that can be cleaned on mini-board & with fiber glass sanding pen, then reseal.

I have repaired a lot of LED lighting units, just like Jack described. But last years I do it only for my friends and some of my long time customers. If we compare price of new unit with price of spare parts (LED's), materials and chemicals (for cleaning, soldering and sealing) + labor time, there is not a big difference.
Of course, if someone make DIY repair for his own car, it is a different story.

Thank you for the comments guys.

Fitting one of these LED strips in would have been no good as its a sealed unit.

I checked the contacts all clean and there is battery voltage to it. I had to order a new unit from my dealer.

You need a T10 Torx screwdriver.

While I was there I had a couple of wiper blades (as they are now 7 years old, that because I clean them with methylated spirits), the passenger side is shorter than the drivers side, which is stupid as you can't swap them if one doesn't wipe as good.

1 set aerodynamic wiper blades driver and passenger - 1Q1 998 002 - £34.12

There are a couple of video's on YouTube.
