Charge back is always the answer

I just got my tails from e-acca and discovered that one of them has a similar issue. I've contacted them and hopefully will be able to get another unit sent out soon....

Edit for follow up: e-acca got back to me first thing Monday morning Europe time and has organised the replacement.

This is the reason why Ed @BEC had to stop shipping taillights on the OEM boxes, the corners are always at risk of breaking. Mine came in the OEM box and one got the edge clipped just like that. I'm glad he worked with me on a replacement super quick, and I don't envy working with overseas as that can be a total hassle.

On the plus side I have been able to confirm that ZERO’s harness and coding are flawless!

I also forgot to post.

I installed mine 3 weeks ago and also used ZERO's harness. The craftsmanship is top notch and he was very helpful since I had a small issue with the coding (had the wrong version of the instruction manual lol)

Here's a quick video of the end result

Installed a set of OEM dynamic tails on my MK7.5 using the DAP harness and OBDeleven app coding, but I’m having trouble getting the rear fog to activate.

I’ve also installed the auto/rear fog only headlight switch, but I don’t see a fog indicator on the dash.

Do the MK7.5 models require the additional rear fog wire noted by DAP for MK7s? Does the switch itself require coding?

Headlight switch requires coding and a trigger wire if vehicle isnít a MK7.5R or didnít come w/ front fogs.

Thank you for this advice and the rest of your related posts, it’s been helpful.

Note for others researching this mod: my DAP 7.5>7.5 harness has a lead that’s too short for clean routing (inner tail > inner tail).

No. It is hard wired inside the tail light unit.

Does anyone have a damaged inner driver's side 7.5 dynamic light?

I need the trim piece that goes on the dynamic 7.5 tail light (inner driver's side). The part number is:

5G0945425A Trim Piece on left inner light. The part is not stamped with an A after it but it is the correct number. It attaches to 5G0945307P (inner driver's tail).

I see that a number of you have had damaged lights but if you want or can pop this off and send it to me I'd pay you! Cannot seem to locate this without having to buy the entire light.

Thanks!

Once the trigger wire is installed, do I need to replace the NAR headlight switch with a EUR one that has the fog-light option?

EDIT: On a 2016 R (NA).
