Rear light query
« on: February 13, 2020, 02:27:41 PM »
Hello guys,

I need to replace my rear drivers side "cherry" red inner light. I'm based in the UK, and the UK spec lights are proving difficult to find. If I was to buy this inner light in a LHD spec, what would I have to do?

I'm thinking I just need to plug my existing bulb holder into it. As it's the Fog and not the reverse I don't think I need to be swapping any lenses etc or am I wrong?

Thanks

The reverse/fog light (in the centre of the inner cluster) swap sides on LHD/RHD so you'll want RHD spec.

Thanks. Would it not just be like a "clear lens mod" if I went for the LHD rear drivers side inner light? I've already got a Red bulb for the fog to go in there. If it was the passenger side and the reverse light was red, I'd be a bit more wary. But I'm just trying to figure out whether I can use the LHD variant with a RED bulb as the lens is clear (or should be if its the reverse light location in Europe)
