Polo 6r 2010 tail light to 6c tail lights

Post by we5twood_vw » Fri Sep 28, 2018 7:03 pm

So has anyone done this? Is it just a straight swap? This is the rear of mine.

No, it's not a straight swap. Size-wise it will fit just fine. But you'll need a pair of adapters to make the connectors fit.

Not sure if there are any RHD commercially for sale but I could make you a pair if you need.

I can probably make it a bit cheaper than these :lol:

Can you tell me the pin-contacts reference? Or if you have any, could you sell them to me? :mrgreen:

Sure, both are fine.
So the tail light side is an MCP 1,5. The other side is a junior power timer.

I have a 2015 model and have purchased led tall lights but need
the adapters. I have resistors with the lights
Think the lights are 6r as my car I’m told is the 6c facelift model
Any idea where I can purchase them RHD?
Thanks

Didn't quite understand...

If it's a 2015 model, it already is a 6C... Do you have a photo?

Sorry been confused by seller on eBay
Apparently the lights I have purchased are a 6r fitting and my car is a 6c
I have attached photos of the back of lights
My original is the one on the right
Thanks for your help

sorry currently have no pictures
but by far, the cheapest option is to crimp some new connectors to your current wiring.

I have a 6c
Car in the first post looks a 6R not a 6C.

If you want to fit 6C rear lights on a 6R you need this adaptor: 6R male rear light connector ---> 6C female light connector.
