    Question Retrofit LED DRL and possibly AFS to 2012 VW CC that already has Xenon headlights

    Hi folks,

    Happy New Year to you all!!

    Ok, so my drivers side headlight got damaged recently rather than replace the damaged headlight with a new unit (and potentially have a visible difference with the other headlight), I'm wondering if it's relatively easy to upgrade the headlights? Hoping it's plug'n'play with only coding changes required but thought I'd ask you guys for your thoughts.

    The car currently has Xenons, so it's really an upgrade to the Daylight Running Lights from Halogen to LED I'd like to attempt. Do I need a controller for the LED DRL? Are there any wiring modifications to the loom required?

    When I started looking, I also thought that it might be a good addition to also install the adaptive cornering units? Is there anything extra I might require for this?

    See below a scan I had handy...nothing has changed on the car since this was done. I hope I've included enough info to get hopefully a positive answer!

    Cheers,

    Colly

    Ok,

    So after some research, I now know that I need the following modules:

    An AFS module (which if, I'm not mistaken, will replace my existing range controller)
    1T0941329 A/B

    LED DRL module
    4G0 907 697 F

    So now I just need to find out if there's any wiring loom differences. Grateful to anyone who could answer that question.

    Thanks,

    Colm

    Hi Colly

    You can in theory retrofit anything but there will be inevitable wiring/coding/module/hardware/software differences. It is not possible to randomly guess what would be required. All retrofits have their own unique challenges and gratification once complete. Headlight changes are quite common. There are some manufacturers who can supply plug and play Headlights without wiring/coding changes. Search the internet

    Thanks for the advice myounus. Googling was my first port of call and why I'm here at all. I suppose I was thinking that there'd be an expert on here who might get me 90% of what would be required going from stock xenon's to LED DRL and AFS. But alas, I'll have to either just replace my damaged unit like for like or take the risk that I'll get all working after shelling out somewhere in the region of 600 hard earned beer tokens! lol

    Besides the different AFS modules on the lights themselves and the addition of DRL power modules, the main AFS module itself is a different part also - 5M0907357F instead of 6R0907357 you currently have.

    Buy an hour of erWin access to get all the schematics required. There will probably be additional wires to run from the AFS module to the LED DRL equipped lights in order for the AFS to work.

    The trouble is there are so many options and variations it's impossible to create a 'standard' guide. Personally I enjoy retrofitting but there are times (like last night) where you are scratching your head. Unfortunately manufacturers don't make it easy as they want to buy new cars and not update older ones.

    Thanks for that, siLc - exactly the sort of expertise I was after. I'll look into that erWin advice...first though I'll do a bit of investigation on the wiring in the car so I'll hopefully have a better idea what I'm looking for during my short-term access.

    Cheers,

    Colm
