Hi,

Great guide, hoping to get some of these mods done to my car soon :)

What is meant by the "Air blower"?

Air blower is auto mode on the air con. When this is adaptation is done and the auto button is pressed it illuminates the lights on all the controls so you know what the auto button is doing. Rather than just illuminating the single auto button light.

Hey guys this looks great. Thanks for posting.

Are you saying that if we have fog lights then we can easily switch on cornering? The motor must be enclosed within the fog light assembly.

In theory yes but we found that if we activated the cornering. Lights they just stayed on all the time when you had normal beam on.

We didn't have time explore where we went wrong or what went wrong.

I understand. Surprised if they'd put motors in on the off chance of some being activated.

There are no motors . I had mine apart to change the bulb.
The normal fog beam lights up the corners the same as when the cornering lights are enabled.
All cornering does is switch on the fog briefly when turning the wheel or indicating under 20mph.

fortunately mine were already enabled when I took delivery of the car. (SE version).

Ah that's interesting . Thanks. I have a BMW with cornering function and the lights are motor driven so I wrongly assumed that that is what the LEON had too.
Appreciate you clearing that up.

Great thread Kev & Zach, thanks for your hard work and providing us with great guides! Is it possible to tell me where I can get access to the Diagnostic Port please? Cheers!

Cheers for the great instructions! Do these apply to any other models? I have Altea XL 2008 pre-facelift.

They would probably be far simpler on earlier models as you do most of the changes in adaptations rather than long coding. But a lot of the above seem to only be on very recent models, lap timer etc.....

Do you have the tech pack? Because my SE with tech doesn't have cornering function

Double check you selected the correct options, the option names are very very similar. There's been at least 2-3 people who have done this.
