Power fold mirrors with puddle lights installed. Thanks to stan-the-man for the looms and Doc for the antennas. Just have to sort out the folding function as at the moment they fold in when should be folding out

Nice one dude.
The folding can be reversed by changing the memory data in the door control modules, you'll need VCPsystem or similar to read/write the data.
If you need me for this, you know where I am.

Looking really nice Giddy. Did you need to change your door control modules for the power fold?

Thanks mate. Yes, I did change the modules, cause my old ones don't have the power fold function. Although they do accept coding for the power fold, but don't have the necessary components inside to physically control the mirrors.

@Giddy
Are those original puddle lights for Caddy? I am sorry, didn't seem to find the info in ETKA, could you be so kind to share part numbers?
Could you be so kind to post your existing old and new door control modules part numbers? Thank you in advance!

@judasfan
I've used Arteon puddle lights 3G0945291A/3G0945292A, there is also a "how to" in a technical section of the forum.
Door modules 5K0959792A/5K0959793A (originals without A), but this is a grey area, because the part numbers are generic and are used across multiple VW vehicles, but with a slightly different software. You don't need new modules if only fitting a puddle lights.

Thank you very much for the detailed answer, but I can't see yet this section of the forum!

Looks really nice!

Are you happy with the AP coilovers?

Did you drill new hole in the shackle since you weren't happy with the height back?

No issues with the coilovers so far, had them on for just over 2 years. As shown in the later posts, last year I've fitted shorter shackles from Darkside. Also, I've replaced the rear shocks to GAZ shocks with adjustable damping, not that AP were faulty, but to have ability to tweak the rear suspension a bit.

Where did you go for the GAZ short shocks @Giddy ?
I’ve been looking at adjustable rears, but can’t determine which GAZ ones I need, a lot of places saying anything from 1 week to 6 weeks delivery ?

Yeah, you need to wait a bit, cause they are built to order.

Good evening, @Giddy, I was thinking....as for beginning of my investigation if modules are "folding supportive", I could look if physical pins , responsible for motors are present?

I’ve just read through the whole thread and this is an insanely nice van!

Everything is meticulously well done, I wish I had the patience and the pennies to do a build of this calibre.
