Unf'ing believable! More accolades about ECS! Tico4Life should have one, will understand exactly what you need, and is normally willing to help other members. Drop him a p/m and tell him I sent you. Anyone with a Bentley should be able to scan it and either attach it in a psot or email it to you. Or start a new thread titled "ECS - More Problems" and you should get a quick response. Then, don't ask for a schematic, demand one. If they can't or won't help immediately, return the kit, and buy it somewhere else. You probably paid too much anyway. They are typically very high on this type of item. There is NO EXCUSE for it not being included, and even less for not addressing the issue immediately. I have been getting the impression they think they are the only game in town.

I saw no mention of a rear fog light. And besides you only add one wire. to the existing harness. I believe these are front fogs.

Perfect!

Between the two, that should be exactly what he/she needs. If it is a complete new fog install, components besides the lights themselves have to be installed, this addresses that. Thanks,

You Go Girl!

I looked at the ECS instructions. The Bug should be very, very similiar; the mounting in the bumper area may look and be slightly different, as will probably everything under the hood, including the location of the grommet pass-thru in the firewall. But the principle is all the same. This was probably more what your guy needed than the wiring schematics. Print and give all of it to him though, and he should have no problem.

And your right, I haven't seen a rear fog for the '06 and up.

If someone has found a kit somewhere, I'm sure there are those that would like to know.

Before I did my fog light install, I contacted ECS (email) for a wiring diagram and never, never got an acknowledgment or response on the subject. Now I know why, there isn't any. Anyway, using 1st VWparts, junkyard and eBay parts I got them installed and working just like if they were factory.
