2011 CC Sport Fog Light Retrofit

Finally completed adding fog lights to my 2011 CC Sport. Listed below are parts needed for the install and also linked is a How-To document in .pdf format. If you have any questions or want anything clarified, let me know. :thumbup::beer:

8T0-941-700 RIGHT fog lamp $65.70 Keffer VW includes bulbs

Fog grills -
3C8-853-665-C-9B9 GRILLE 1 45.26 Keffer VW
3C8-853-666-C-9B9 GRILLE 1 45.26 Keffer VW

Also available at orientalparts.com(used to be VAGLink.com) - $49.99 free shipping.

Kufatec wiring harness -
Will need harness for H11 bulbs. $50 + shipping from OEMPlus.com. Will need to email them for availability. Usually 4 week lead time to get the harness in. I contacted VWVortex user Maloosheck and he hooked me up with what I needed and had it in my hands 3 days later. Awesome guy and was incredible in helping troubleshoot with me. JUst be sure whoever you get the harness from it has the right/left wiring combined into one connection. This is how it connects in the CC since we also have the cornering lights.

Euro Switch -
Available at orientalparts.com(used to be VAGLink.com) for $29.99 free shipping.

http://orientalparts.com/Chrome-Head-Light-Switch-With-Coming-Home-Automatic-Passat-B6-P2196847.aspx

Trigger Wires-
000-979-009, Qty - 1, 2 optional. Shouldn't be more than a couple bucks.
I got one from Maloosheck and one from my local dealer. Price will vary with dealer. One wire is needed to wire up the fog lights. Second wire is optional if you wanted to wire up the rear fog lights.

Screws-
N911-605-01, Qty - 4, they were only $0.70 each.

If you haven't already changed out your amber corners lights, this would be an ideal time to pick up a set as it will be simple to install as you will already have the grill off when you start installing the fog lights.

Relay -
3C8-951-253. After searching dealers and then telling me it is not available in US, I ended up ordering from TM Tuning as a special order. Took about 2 weeks to deliver coming from Germany.

Just one question...

Can the Kufactec wiring harness be ordered through the VW dealership as an OEM item for car that came with the fogs or is the factory wiring different require the actual Kufactec made?

Think I may have asked that before :confused:

Great job on the DIY!

Getting ready to do mine along with HID headlights. Might keep the amber turn signals since my car is Lt Brwn Metallic...kinda looks cool with the amber lenses.

You can, but expect to pay quite a bit more. I priced it when I was at the dealership one day and they quoted a price of $200+ for it. :screwy::what::eek:

Ahh yes...forgot that factor.

Guess when I went today to price some parts for this re-tro fit the dealer prices were not that bad. The relay was $45.30 plus $20.00 shipping. I am still waiting on TM Tuning for a price quote to see where they are on the part.

alternate location to run wiring

just wanted to add that i went thru the fog light install process and since I had a MT I had to pick a different firewall to route it thru.. there is plenty of space on the wiring harness coming into the car on the far left side from where the clutch is.. also, i was able to run a hanger (very carefully) from the inside out and then tape the wiring onto it to route it into the cabin, therefore bypassing the removal of the battery altogether..

Updated the link for the How-To .pdf file.

Since I last posted to this, 2012's have definitely changed in terms of wiring positions etc.

Let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks for updating! :beer:

If anyone has specifics for 2012 CC Sport to add, it would be greatly appreciated!

I am in the process of doing the fogs on my 2012 CC and it is definitely challenging in terms of wiring/pin#s and Vagcom.

So far what I know is that the items needed are the same for 2011 CC's in terms of bulbs, lense, triggers wires, Euro switch, but wiring it up to the CECM and coding are different.

One note, when trying to enable the rear fogs, I stumbled upon something kinda cool. I hooked the trigger wire up to the correct terminal but wrong pin# and when enabled with the Euro switch, my rear reverse lights came on.

Hopefully will have more soon...

I just received my switch from VagLink. One question: So I noticed that in the auto position, you cannot pull out the knob to activate the rear and front fogs...only in the parking light and lights on position you can do that. Is there any way to get the fogs to come on with the headlights when the switch is in the "Auto" position? I have a VAG, but haven't dove into the coding yet as I don't even have the fogs wired up yet. Would this be something you could code using VCDS?

Thanks.

No, have the same switch AUTO is for headlights only and fog or rear fogs will not work or come on. Only in parking lights and full headlights. There is no coding.
