    Number plate light wiring

    Hello.
    I have bought 2014 VW CC few days ago.
    There was "number plate bulb warning" light on dash.
    I havent checked it I thought I will get bulb changed when get home.
    So when got home and checked guess what?
    There is no less ghts at all ?! Just two holes.
    I have ordered complete lights but can't see wires and plugs.
    Anybody know where wiring runs to these lights?
    Any help much appreciated.

    They are LED units, the wiring is inside the bumper.

    Looks like somebody stole them.
    Looks like bumper off job then if wiring dropped to the bottom of the bumper.
    Thanks for reply.

    They do get stolen so people can have LED number plates lights in their Golf's and other such models that they fit directly, they would rather steal them and pay the 60 they cost...If they were caught they would lose parts of the anatomies in my world...not parts that would stop them working either! Snip and a dab of hot tar!
