In Topic: Fitting A 2Nd Reverse Light - Help

17 April 2014 - 11:44 AM

ive done that too. cut off and lugs and then trimmed it down in size too. even tried another bulb but no joy

what i may do is fit it all and see if there is current to the bulb holder as i may have the +/- the wrong way around and i'm guessing that this could be the cause. The wiring was put in place many many months ago when i replaced the bumper.

unless your using leds it wont mater what way round it should be

you are putting it in reverse arnt you ?

finally got my finger outta my bottom (snigger) and decided to do the 2nd reverse light mod after reading Lennys awesome guide. I did do it slightly differently (used a glue gun to bond the second light fitting onto the lense - i hope it will hold!)


I thought I had purchased the right connector off ebay for the additional buulb, wired it all up but it doesnt work.

i'm guessing that its the connector that could be the issue - i tried to see if the plug is getting power and it is so maybe the fitment isnt right and it isnt connecting to the 2 pins?


so, is there a possibility that i can order the correct plug from ford???

If someone can get me the part number than this would be awesome.





you might have what i had.the connector that goes into the bulb holder isnt going in far enough.i had to trim some of the bulb holder to allow it to go in to reach the pins . hth

Something like this?


I think you will get 2" bore bit not 50mm bore. I know it's less than a millimetre of difference..


how much for just a meter of pipe .


Your standard 2" waste pipe should be about that mate.

Sent from my GT-I9300 using Ford OC mobile app



ive been to a lot of places and 40mm seems to be all they do

ive ordered some on ebay now £238 for a 250mm

Yeah I need to know what wires to fuse and give a live to as it goes into the fuse box which I cannot open so I'm gonna have to put an inline fuse when I find out what colours I need to cut! A wiring diagram would be very helpful right now!

i found i didnt have the wire from the fuse box from the fuse so just added one.have you checked for wires in passenger footwell ?

I have all the wires and I've followed them back to the fuse box but there is no connectors or fuse in 121. Is there 4 wires going to each switch?

i think so.one wire from each switch goes to the passenger footwell then to the seat connector then the fuse side from fuse box goes to each seat connector
