Yes it's standard and in about 4 months they'll look nothing like that if you pressure wash your car ! I'm assuming that's the reason mine now resemble a Jackson Pollock painting.

Pressure washing ruins the ŠKODA projections? Wow, that’s unfortunate. Is it water ingress or something?

/\ One of mine is just starting to go. There’s one extra blob of light emerging. It’s been washed 4 times since I got it in November by one of those hand car wash places.

In my opinion, they’d have been better off with puddle lights under the doors; these projected Skoda logos aren’t very effective at actually illuminating something you want to avoid stepping into.

I always clean my car at home and it's the only thing I can think of that would end up getting water in that area, just another crap design IMO.

I can't remember where they were in the Karoq I think it was in the door.

Slightly off topic but my car has started lighting up my drive at night. I don’t think it did that before? Can’t see it in the brochure. Is this standard?

This is the state of both of mine ATM

sorry not the best picture in the world (all the lights are a bit bright)

But you can see I now have 2 reverse lights and 2 fog lights

I have at last got my left hand reverse and fog light from a left hard drive Enyaq fitted and it really has made a big difference when reversing (and it looks a lot better as well)

And with the reverse camera cover to stop the glare off the number plate my reverse camera is so much better now

They look good. Do you have the LHD lights part numbers & are they easy to fit?

Hello

I have just had a look at the part numbers on both lights (old without lights and new) and it is exactly the same number so that must be the part number for the light housing only

So I don’t know the part number sorry

And it was very easy to physically fit to the car as it is just 3 screws and they are very easy to get too

The wiring wasn’t to bad at all if you are ok with a soldering iron, thankfully there is a small connecting wire which goes from the PCB in the light to the harness of the car and I just used that to connect to so you are not having to do any work on the wiring harness itself

I found it all pretty straight forward and even better the canbus light system hasn’t lite the warning light which is great news

Oh dear not good. Does the light get projected from the wing mirror or door sill?

It’s okay I can answer my on question it’s the bottom on the door mirror- I won’t be pressure washing that bit.

I've had an on going issue with Skoda and my local dealer on this - the dealer admitted he had received other complaints - even from a guy with the matrix headlights and therefore double rear lights. Eventually, several months ago now, my dealer service manager agreed to champion this problem with Skoda on my behalf. Since then nothing. He even refuses to take my calls or call me back. What makes it worse is that my previous car, a VW Passat, had a camera that gave a brilliant view at night - as clear as day - which made reversing a doddle, so the technology exists within the group. Now, as others have suggested, we are in the habit of using the braking light to give a moderately useful view. The car is fantastic but on this issue Skoda's response has been pathetic.
