The reason so many people have trouble when switching to LED bulbs is that they fail to flush all of the OEM Blinker Fluid out and replace it with the proper ether based lubricant. Light behaves as both a particle and a wave. Since LED's produce light differently than filament type vacuum bulbs, a different medium is needed for proper transference of the electro-magnetic energy that they produce in the visible spectrum.

Here is some more info about ether theory:

The problem with Australian blinker fluids is that they use Emu oil and the Society of German Automotive Electrical Engineers is a major supporter of PETA. They require their members to add animal based oil detection and fault generation to every automotive electrical design they produce.

Don't they use whale or fish oil for this in Japan?

Yes, but it is synthetic Whale Oil now.

I like to add a little Neet's Foot Oil to my signal fluid. Neet's foot oil is what you wanted to run in your Hudson Hornet's wet clutch back in the days when Hudson's dominated NASCAR.

I believe that one needs to use an aether based lubricant when dealing with light.

I'm sorry if this is a repeat but this thread is rather long and I may have missed the answer to my question.

Do PD TDI's require 505.01 blinker oil or can non-505.01 blinker oil be used in PDs? I'm leaning towards using Delvac blinkeroil (505.00 rated) but heard that DBW noticed excessive turn signal stalk wear from unapproved blinker fluid use.

I wouldn't know. I've got a VE TDI. I'm looking in to the Amsoil full synthetic blinkeroil for mine. According to the website, it's interchangeable as to right or left so you only need to buy one type. Some might not approve, though, because it's not listed on the VW approved list.

I drained all my blinker fluid to see what would happen and now whenever I step on the brakes I hear this farting noise coming from all the light sockets and the bulbs have a somewhat greenish glow. No smell, but then I have sinus problems from sniffing blinker fluid. I'm not hooked or anything, however, does anyone know where I can buy a 50 gallon barrel?

I am working on a special bio-blend made from chicken lips... but I think it's gonna take a lots of chickens to get enough chicken lips to make 50 gallons!

I think that farting noise comes from using bio-blinker fluid based on bratwurst grease or bean burito residue. It may even be from sauerkraut based bio-blinker fluid too. Just a thought.

Does anyone know if VW 509 00 blinker fluid will work in a Mk6 TDI? My turn signals seem sluggish, and I'm hoping the lubricity in 509 00 will solve that problem.

509 is back wards compatible from everything I've read but I just don't trust it. Worse thing you want is a sticking blinker!

Real-life shows that (almost...) nothing is compatible backwards . Newer specs are for emissions tests and fuel less consumption but they not care for engine longevity . Planned obsolescence...

I actually bought another tractor from the OP. And in our conversation, we were talking about newer muffler bearings made of a composite material, and VW's new spec of blinker fluid.

I also heard that 509 00 blinker fluid is just a repackaged headlight fluid. Can anyone else comment on this?
