Cornering lights

Post by Levy » Wed Aug 08, 2018 6:30 am

Hello.
Is there any way to turn off the cornering light function on the T-Roc?

I saw in the manual that you can change that option while setting each user account but I can't find it.
It is annoying for me since the cornering function uses fog lights which are yellowish and all other lights are white LED and I'm not into changing the bulbs in my fog lights.

@Mackemsteve - I guess that you don't have any constructive ideas for me?!

Remove the wires from the foglights?
As they're yellow, you won't want to use them as fog lights either, so just disconnect them totally.
Personally I just leave them, it's such a trivial issue that I don't let it bother me.

The difference between stock halogen bulbs and 6500 kelvin led bulbs. No codes after installation.

Siggigunda, could you explain how to change the fog light bulb & how long does it take ?. Could you give me the eBay link or listing number ?. I assume the fog light & cornering lamp works from the same bulb ?. Ideally I’d like the white led light for the fog lamps to match the led headlights. The fog lamps will rarely be used but I think the cornering lamps which activate every time you turn look cheap & mismatched with their yellowish light against the white led headlights & drl’s. Many thanks

Yes very easy about 10 min both sides. In the tool kit that comes with the car there is a small metal hook. You put the hook into the small hole in the plastic frame around the fog light and pull the frame out take notice where the fasteners on the frame go into the bumper. Then loosen the 2 tork screws on the foglight and slide it easaly out and unplug the wire to the bulb. Loosen the bulb by turning it slightly and pull it out. Assembly is in the reverse order.
