Actually all three knobs light up, but the outer two are VERY faint. VW tried to be very clever with the design of their light-pipes but forgot that the particular plastic they use attenuates the light over longer distances. If the lightpipes were made of glass, they would work fine.

You could try removing the pipes that feed light into the side knobs, and then putting small lamps or LEDs where the pipes used to go.


Two wrongs don't make a right, but three lefts do.
