rear lights

Postby shockman » Thu Aug 02, 2007 8:35 pm

hiya, ive just finished putting some rear black lexus lights that i bought from ktec to my car, looks awsome!!

however, as i have a spoiler on my car with the middle brake light, if i have my sidelights on that light comes on as well, so for the moment have disconnected it as it would be dangerous

any idea what i could do to solve this problem?

i have bought a set of aftermarket rear brake lights and was attempting to fit them today. I managed to remove the original ones and was left with the bulb holder (which is connected to the car through a clip). I have tried and tried and tried to unclip the original bulb holder to replace them with the new bulb wiring but cannot unclip the original bulb holder.... abit noobish i know but how do i unclip the bulb holder??

Can someone please tell me where each wire goes in the back of the cluster?? i can only assume that Wire 2 goes in the middle of the cluster, Wire 1(blue) & Wire 1(white) go in the top & bottom hole of cluster??

if you take a look at back of the light it tells you which wire goes where
when it says red green look for a red and a green wired lamp and put it in that hole ect ect

cheers for the info guys, was finally able to fit the lights :cool:

But typically for a megane, there had to be summat wrong didnt there! I fitted all the bulbs, put it all togther and all the lights work (indicators, brake/stop, sidelight) BUT the REAR FOG & REVERSE lights do not work!! i bought some new '382' bulbs (which Halfords book states is for the megane reverse light), but which of the above wires do i fit that to, and which hole does that go hole in?
And im confised about the rear fogs... :? i am tempted to take it all apart and reconnect the original wiring just to check which one is for reverse and which one is fogs...

Any help/info peeps?!?!?
