Parking light

Depending on the vehicle equipment level, when the parking lights (left and right turn signals) are switched on, the headlight and the tail light on the corresponding side of the vehicle light up. The parking light only lights up when the ignition is switched off and if the turn signal and main beam lever was in the central position before being operated.

Daytime headlights

With daytime headlights, the dipped beam headlights or side lights and the number plate are lit up.

When the light switch is in position , the daytime headlights are switched on every time the ignition is switched on. In some model versions, the indicator lamp in the light switch indicates that the daytime headlights are switched on.

The daytime headlights cannot be switched on or off manually.

Daytime running lights

There are separate lights in the headlights or in the front bumper for the daytime running lights.

Only the separate lights light up when the daytime running lights are switched on .

When the light switch is in position , the daytime running lights are switched on every time the ignition is switched on.

Static cornering light

When cornering slowly or travelling around very tight bends, a static cornering light is switched on automatically. The static cornering light is integrated into either the fog light or the front headlight, and only lights up at speeds below approximately 40 km/h (25 mph).

When reverse gear is engaged, the static cornering light on both sides of the vehicle may switch on to provide better illumination of the area when manoeuvring.

Lights with LED technology

The LEDs cannot be replaced. Seek expert assistance. Volkswagen recommends using a Volkswagen dealership for this purpose.

WARNING

Accidents can occur if roads are not sufficiently illuminated and other road users have difficulty seeing the vehicle, or cannot see it at all.

In cool or damp weather, the interior of the headlights, rear lights and turn signals may mist up briefly. This is normal and does not affect the service life of the lights on your vehicle.
