With all these things, the more you remove the easier it is to reach things.  Wheel arch liners are easier to take off with the wheel off, but can be half loosened with the wheel on full lock.  There are a couple of screws but mostly it is push in fittings - these have a centre pin that expands the tabs on the back, if you lever out the centre with a fine tipped screwdriver by about 6 or 7mm the fitting should then pull out with your fingers.  They are different sizes in different locations so you need to lay them out in order somehow.

Good luck.

In my first photo above, is the grey plug the IG1 you were talking about. It's here again to save you looking
Sorry I'm not sure without looking at a car. 

Anyone else?

Hi TG

Many thanks, much appreciated

I hope I may be able to get at them with half loose cover, hopefully

I will have another go tommorow or thurs hopefully

I am still waiting for the controller to arrive, but just thought I would install these ready

Hopefully some one may post over if I have located the correct plug, and if not, point me in the right direction (a pic would be lovely)

Once again, many thanks for you invaluable help and advice

John

Hi

Many thanks once again to TG. Spot on for 2 part install and to have to partially remove the wheel arch liner.

Wheel arch liner needs the bottom plug, 2 bottom screws, travel around arch and remove 2 plugs, and the last plug is about 6 inches in towards the front. Gently bring apart from valance, and enough access to get behind bumper valance. Do not put too much pressure on the liner.

DRL fitting

Remove from trim, undue both screws with brackets fully. There are 4 position holes to use, grind the bottom hole flat to the heat sink, and use the 2 hole up from bottom

Remove the curved portion of trim which houses the DRL - do not remove the sides, just the portion that stops the DRL from falling through the trim.

Position DRL in place, get longer screws and hand tighten the screws behind. Test the lights. If working for the trim, which positions the DRL correctly. Fully tighten the screws behind the bumper valance to DRL

Fully ensure trim is secure and test light

Fit wheel arch liner back correctly

Job done - phew....

On mine, I do not have a grinder to flatten the bottom hole, and I had fit both before I realised which the bottom of the DRL was sticking out a few mm's, so I think I'll leave it for now

Just waiting for the controller to arrive, so can fully complete this

@TGO - it's. not the bumper I need help with, but the wiring for the controller

If you look at my picture above, the grey plug plugs into something which the black cable to right goes to the sidelight/headlight motor I believe

Any help with a pic would be appreciated from anyone who could help

Many thanks

John

Hi

Sorry I thought last night, the advice on grinding the bottom screw position of the heat sink flat maybe wrong and not the reason for the led not lying flat

I think maybe the small bottom screw position maybe to help with heat dissipation

The black plug holding the bottom valance to the bumper maybe the reason for the led not lying flat

Please make your own judgement over this

Many thanks

John

Maybe one thing to consider is what angle they end up pointing, I guess you want the maximum beam intensity fairly parallel with the road and straight ahead, your bulbs look like they have a pretty good beam and direction right now.  I sometimes see them fitted to curved surfaces pointing out way to the sides.

Hi 3reggy

Sorry, I thought I had sorry

I'll upload some finished pictures I took and the controller I bought, did not dim the DRL on indicator, instead they flashed the DRL with the indicator so I cut the indicator wire as it is illegal in uk (note I watched a police program which showed a skoda activa flashing the DRL with the indicator)

It will be tommorow though and I think they look they look good, and still are working lovely

Many thanks

John

Hi 3reggy

Please see 3 pictures of my DRL (no lights, sidelights and all lights)

I think they look good and I have not seen them fitted to another jazz si

If you fit them and need any help, please let me know

Many thanks

John
