Yay.. 20 months old and I get to join the 'Fractal' Puddle light club. Really odd as I check these often and I am sure that up to a week or so ago they were fine, and then both have gone..

I know many others have reported it and I think had them replaced under warranty, so I'll be popping mine into a random dealer soon.

* I did search for an existing thread but couldn't find anything recent.

I'm sure I have seen this before but can not find the thread, here or SpeakEV! Strange 'logo' isn't it?

I’ve only had my car 3 weeks and this is how my lights look. I assumed this was the design?

The point of the post is the specks/flecks around the main design, like a sort of shattered look. The main design is correct.

Seems the Golf R owners have had similar issues, someone on an R forum has added Part NUmbers for the Golf and Golf R projectors, but I have not found the ID ones yet?

Hi from Sweden.
Had this issue on my Golf GTE 2021 and now also on my ID3 MAX 2021.
Did anyone tried to replace those by them self? Don't think my dealer will take this on "goodwill" :-)

Thnx.

I haven't done anything about it yet, my car is now 2 yers old so I should book the service. Others in the UK have had these replaced under warranty, it's hard to argue it's wear and tear so don't see how VW can not replace them.

I did look into the various parts as I said above as if there had been a standard VW projection I may have bought those instead, but it doesn't look like there is one.

I had the same issue with my VW puddle lights recently. It’s frustrating, especially since they worked fine a week ago. Definitely take it to a dealer—if your car is still under warranty, they should replace them for free. I had mine replaced without any issues. There’s a good chance it’s a common fault, so they should be familiar with it.

Noticed this on ours this afternoon, assumed it was dirty somewhere!

I remember a thread about this some time ago. It is a common fault. I had mine replaced, no quibbles, by main dealer.
