Hi All

I was in my mates bora and his vents lights lit up....

I mean the 0..... I where you can turn on and off none of them on mine work everything else works fine...

time to itme the ashtray ciggrette bit dont work but a bang usually sorts it.

just wondering if the bulbs gone or anything obvious i can check also why does the cigg light bit go off? once the heater panel light was off and a bang made it work!!

Any help will be appreciated how do i take the vent out with out damaging to check???

Sounds like a loose wire but dont know where to start?

Thanks all.

Only the bora sport had illuminated air vents before 2003 here are mine [:p]



tidys up the interior of the golf well and matches the bora sport clocks nicely [heat]

Yes you can change them but as above they are a bit over priced for what they are. Depends on your budget but just have a browse on ebay and search illuminated bora vents

I thought all Bora vents were/could be illuminated! Every single set no matter age spec or what i have gotten out of boras being broken had the illuminating wires on them

Not all bora have illuminated vents, most have normal fully closed vents which look like illuminated vents but with no wires. Not sure SE come with illuminated vents but could always be that they were fitted on by the previous owners. Mine's not even a bora and I got illuminated vents [:p]

it aint hard to take the vents out and wire up some red l.e.ds if it comes down to it. i got a set from the dealers for my golf at over £100 and the drivers side vent wasnt illuminated (i think it was for an r32 rather then bora sport) however shining a light through the vent i could see all that was needed was two l.e.ds
