STEP 1. REMOVE & CUT

Start by raising the hood of the vehicle and locate the 4 screws/clips that secure the upper half of the front bumper to the radiator panel. The 2 outer screws can be removed using a Philips head screwdriver and a small flat head screwdriver to unclip the 2 on the inner side. Note these can be slightly varied by year model but removable all the same. Now using a power saw or multi-tool with a fine, narrow blade, cut out the section of the lower grill leaving 1 vertical bar on each side and 1 horizontal bar which will be at the bottom (31.5" bracket).

Tip: A Stanley knife blade can be used to tidy up the edges of the cutout.

STEP 2. PLACE BRACKET IN POSITION

Now depending on what you find easiest to slip the bracket into the position, pull back the top of the upper front bumper enough to pass it through being careful not to put too much strain on the bumper whilst pulling up to avoid any damage.

STEP 3. SECURE BRACKET

Looking down roughly behind the license plate you will see 4 holes located in the bumper support. place the 4 supplied bolts through the holes and position the bracket in place. Tighten the nuts and bolts firmly to the bumper support. Using a socket wrench with an extension will help dramatically with access to the top of the bolts. Any spanner or an adjustable wrench can be used to hold the nuts in position as you tighten from the top or vise versa.

STEP 4. LIGHT INSTALLATION

Now the bracket is installed firmly, all that is left is fitment of your ST3K which is fairly straight forward. You will need to be a little bit nimble to tighten as the side screws on the light bar can be a little tricky to access. Adjust the tilt of the bar directing to your preference and you're all set.

AMAROK LED UPGRADE KITS | HEADLIGHT & INTERIOR

If your Amarok came equipped with anything less than the factory fitted HID headlamps, no doubt you will echo our sentiment that the High and Low beam performance is incredibly poor.  We've worked very closely with the Amarok community to bring to market a plug and play headlight upgrade that substantially increases performance.  The Amarok high beam has an additional filament which plays the role of DRL, our high beam upgrade retains this function by way of a dedicated LED emitter to take over this function.

The team over at NET 4x4 has done an amazing job on covering Conversion Kits for the VW Amarok series 1 & 2 with video tutorials.

VW AMAROK LED LICENSE PLATE UPGRADE

A new product soon to join our range is the LED upgrade unit specific for the Volkswagen Amarok. Below is a guide to lead you through the installation.

Start by removing the factory unit using a screwdriver to release the tab that secures the position. The housing for the light will disconnect from the wiring via a tab and to install the new unit it is easier to assemble the connectors and driver module prior to fitting into the vehicle.

Once the module is connected, simply connect the other end into the light itself and lastly the module to the original power plug. The power plug will only connect one way so make sure the straight side of the factory plug lines up with the modules plug that has a thicker side as displayed in the picture below.

We recommend using a cable tie or other means to hold the module to the wiring so it does not dangle down and bounce against the body. All that is left is to fit the LED unit back up into the slot and turn the lights on to test and make sure everything is working correctly.

These are the perfect amount of light with a color temperature matching all of our existing range. This amount of light output is ideal to improve illumination but not too much as to add glare to any reversing cameras.
