VW T5 LED Headlamps

I’ve just changed my Phillips 110% headlamps for some Dubflecta LED lamps. Results are good – very bright. Just have to sort out the warning light problem. These lights are meant to be Canbus error free – emailed Dubflecta and waiting for a response.

I thought it might be useful to add a description of how to put these lamps in. It’s not difficult but it’s not trivial either.

  1. Remove rubber sealing cap from around the back of the headlamp assembly.
  2. Locate the 3 pronged electrical connector and remove (simply it pull backwards towards the rear of  your Vdub)
  3. Locate the spring fastener and push this down and back – it will then spring off.
  4. Remove old bulb. Note thick tab is the upper, vertically oriented tab of the three locating tabs
  5. Put the new bulb in place. Best to locate the bulb connecting wire behind the spring fastener i.e. inside it towards the front of your Vdub.
  6. Then ease the spring over the bulb body and place the bulb with thickest tab vertically up. Pushing the spring back on requires a little bit of a push, and you should feel a noticeable click back into place to secure the bulb.
  7. Then attach control unit to the bulb wire (has a locating lug to assist this). Place the whole assembly inside the headlamp housing and reseal the rubber housing cap.
  8. Repeat, test.

  10. I’ll report back on bulb issues/ performance.
