Hi all. I'm currently doing a facelift on my caravelle t5.1 Ive got all the parts apart from the rear lights. I'm holding off buying the 6.1 led rear lights as i need more info before I commit(abit pricey). So I'm wondering if anyone on here has done the facelift or has any knowledge if and what wiring alterations are needed. Or even better if I could get a harness converter. I'm doing the conversation in 3 phases so hoping it will all be done for spring馃. Thank you in advance for any help and any advice I receive馃憤

Are you changing the tailgate & bumper to T6 as they're both significantly different to T5, if so then T6 rear lights will probably fit. T6 tailgate lights won't fit with a T5 tailgate as they're a totally different shape, T6 barn door lights I think fit with some fettling as VW lost the will to live when they got to barn doors and they're the same as the T5.

Yeah I've got new tailgate(not barn doors), bumper ect everything except the lights. Really like the 6.1 rear lights but don't want waste money if I cant get em to work.

If they're full LED I'd imagine you'll need load resistors for the indicators, & code out the bulb failure function for the other lights if nothing else!
