Volkswagen Golf Service & Repair Manual: General description

  Caution
If excessive force is exerted on sockets without illumination, the retaining sleeve may be damaged.
Only illuminated sockets (cigarette lighter) can be removed with the puller T 40148.
The puller does not manage to release the locking lugs of sockets without illuminated retaining sleeve.
Usually sockets without illumination cannot be removed without being damaged.
On some vehicles, the illumination is not provided by a light bulb, but by an LED (light-emitting diode), depending on the equipment level. This LED is permanently attached to the retaining sleeve and cannot be renewed separately.
Retaining sleeves with a light bulb are available in different versions. On the one version, the light bulb can be replaced separately; on the other version, the light bulb cannot be replaced separately. In this case, the bulb carrier has to be replaced together with the light bulb.
Depending on the space requirement, the vehicles are equipped with various electric sockets and cigarette lighter sockets. They differ in length and have different electrical connections. In the case of electric sockets or cigarette lighter sockets with a wiring tail, it may be necessary to perform additional work in order to gain access to the connector.
