VW Xenon HID Adjustment Procedure

How to adjust your Xenon HID lights on a VW.
In this example, we adjust our 2006 VW Jetta GLI, but the procedure should be the same for GTI and other VW models. There is also a problem that we found after lowering car. We'll also go over the troubleshooting steps to fix the leveling.

The basic procedures are outlined here on the Ross-Tech website. Well, these are not enough if you have a problem adjusting your xenon lights up or down. After lowering our car, it generated a soft code in the xenon range controller:

Fog Lights - 2006 VW Jetta GLI 2.0T FSI

Fog Lights - 2006 VW Jetta GLI 2.0T FSI

How to change your fog light bulbs on your 2006 VW GLI or GTI. First of all, we need to address the replacement light bulbs. On the USA market GLI/GTI's we are seeing 9006 Bulbs. There are aftermarket jetta kits that have hit the market, and they are coming with H11 bulbs. There have been factory MKV's that have come with H11 or 9006 bulbs. The only way to be 100% sure is to open yours up first. It should take no more than 15 minutes to check them.

Let's start by removing the set screw on the lower panel.

GIAC Chip and Dyno - 2006 VW Jetta GLI 2.0T FSI

GIAC Chip and Dyno - 2006 VW Jetta GLI 2.0T FSI

We equipped our Jetta GLI with a GIAC chip.
A vag-com block 120 "dyno" was done after the installation. Usually the vag-com dyno is spot on with matching wheel output. As you can see here, the engine generates a lot of torque:

GIAC FSI 2.0T Chip Results

GIAC Dyno, Jetta GLI

As you can see, the results are rather impressive for 4 door vw!

Here's some more data:


Another 3rd gear dyno:

Requested boost vs. Actual - boost does die down on small factory turbos fast!

boost graph

Air/fuel ratios - rather lean for just a chip. Word has it that GIAC is working on and testing leaner files in the real world right now. There is still much to learn about the 2.0T FSI engine, so I'm glad they are doing a lot more testing before upping the parameters.

Motion Sensor Install - VW GTI 1.8T

Motion Sensor Install - VW GTI 1.8T

This faq will document how to install a "radar" type motion sensor to the factory alarm on the MKIV VW's, this should cover GTI/golf/jetta/new beetle. The sensor uses radar to detect movement within the vehicle. A standard shock sensor can be added to the trigger too.


Tools:

Torx T-20 screwdriver

A few wire jumper connectors to tap into the wires.

DEI dual stage radar sensor (since DEI makes about 90%+ of alarm equipment, any store should carry this.

Remove the lower factory plastic pieces under the steering wheel. There are two parts on the lower part of the dash that are held in with the Torx screws. Remove all the screws and if you pry gently, you will see how they are removed. You will see a steel plate that can be removed after this. Once this is removed, you have access to the entire lower area.
