Thanks to Neo!

Just a public thanks to Neo for sorting out my clear lenses for me, and calling TNT on your day off!

They are here, I have fitted them (except the third brake light as I didn't have time during lunch) and it was easy!

:) :) :) :)

Too late for photos, but I can take photos of the back of the old light units to people have an idea of what they are feeling for.

I will write some instructions but it really isn't that hard. Takes 10 - 15 mins.

I have to agree with monsta, the lights are so simple to change. I used to have clear lenses on my one, but decided yellow wasn't the right colour with clear lenses.

All you need to do is open the cover of the sides of the boot, unclip the clips (may need to tighten the lights a little first, which makes it easier), then undo the nut. They then pop out. Fitting is the reverse.

:D :D

I reckon they take 20 mins max to fit. If you want to bring it down to Ashford I'll do it for you and you can give me a tenner!

This is the bold you need to undo:

This is the rear of the light unit

This is how they look!



:D

Part numbers:
63 12 0 140 693 (rear set - 3 piece)
63 12 0 141 252 (side repeaters - 2 piece)

I've got a question. When lit, does red light appear because a red-coated bulb is used, or is there a red lens buried underneath all the white plasic?

The bulbs are quite funny looking, but when they are in the units they look blue.

Sometimes they show, sometimes they don't.
