While looking some things up about the pillar light I came across someone who used VW courtesy lights so I went ahead and grabbed me a set for each MJ at the local pick a part. Not realizing it at the time both sets had different retaining clips. I know i grabbed a set from a newer Passat and a set from a newer Beetle. Both have the exact same part number but different clips. What I really like about them is other then modifying the wiring, the snap right in with no other modification. Here are the 2 different retaining clips, part number, wiring schematic (don't mind my horrible drawing) and the end result.

I don't see the difference between the 'no go' and 'proper clip'.

Nice!  Which year and model VW did the correct set come from?  and what's the part number?  That'll help future people locate them.  It's probably easier to get even new replacements for those than even the Euramtec lights these days.

It just looks like the "No Go" clip is bent out of position. :dunno:

I thought the same to but it is a totally different clip.

It was a later model VW Bettle.
