Hi all -

 

I bought a Jan 2010 Ford Galaxy 2.0 TDCi 100kW in Belgium (it's a left-drive).

 

I do have the CoC from Ford issued; however, in order to pass the UK MOT as part of the registration process, I need to replace the headlights (the angles in each light are different as they drive on the 'wrong' ;-) side of the road).

 

Key question - WILL HEADLIGHTS FROM A UK-REGISTERED 2010 (technically it's the 2006-10 type as the new type only started in Jul 2010) FORD GALAXY FIT INTO MY BELGIUM-BOUGHT CAR? Or, in other words, are the external dimensions and electricity plugs identical for cars sold in UK and on the continent (all cost-saving logic would indicate 'yes' but I need to know for sure as the new ones are 200+ quid....).

 

Cheers,

 

George

agreed, if they come from the same model / year, then you should have no issues.
