It has to be made mate,  they don't come like that.  The part that lights up is from a Touareg and cost about £2.50 you need to then measure the optic with the handle and dremel out the aparture so the optic can fit in then it needs to be hot glued in.

What rotary tool bit was used to cut the door handle case plastic? I'm in the process of doing my front doors next week and need a little guidance.

My front doors are done and wired up like from the factory. I bought rear door handles off a breakers and modified them. Now I need to sort out the rear controllers. I too have the lowly 1K0 959 703/704 C (GEN1) controllers, which need to be swapped out for newer ones. As I've concluded, 1K0 959 703/704 F (GEN2) should work for me because it is used in the 2005 Passat B6, which at the very least should have door exit lights from the factory. Any ideas?

Since nobody has bothered to answer, I'll try to add some useful information myself for those with pre-MY 2007 Mk5-s.

I bought the aforementioned rear door modules off of a 2005 Golf Plus and while their VCDS measuring blocks show no sign of exit warning lights, there is a measuring block for door handle illumination. When the module is coded for handle illumination, the block's value changes to 100% when the handle illumination is called for.
I have opened up one of the modules and observed the module's printed circuit board against a light and after a process of elimination, I've come to the conclusion of either pins 5 or 8 of the 18pin connector are the +12v for door handle illumination.

Who is willing to give it a shot?  :grin:

What pins do I use in the rear if 14 and 4 are already used for the door warning lights?
