Whenever you plan to work on your car it is important that you take all of the safety precautions possible as well as preparing your work area. Please be sure to wear the appropriate protective gear such as work gloves and safety goggles.
In addition to wearing protective eyewear we recommend working on your VW Golf or GTI only when it is parked on a level surface in a dry and well lighted area. We also advise spread a mat or sheet adjacent to the work area to use as a staging area for the installation and to prevent damage to the OEM and replacement lights.
