Hi all,

The plastic has snapped away from the centre brake light unit hanging off the car, Someone kindly post the Part numbers I need for the clear light and the revised spring and any other bolts I need.

Cheers.

just ring Sopers in Lincoln they will know the parts and are usually the cheapest and offer free delivery to forum members.

They told me not to bother with the spring upgrade just don't over tighten it and it will be fine

I’ve fitted my clear one today after ordering from eBay. £55 delivered.
A pretty easy job but quite fiddly!

I put a clear one on my car and the seal started breaking down straight away (2weeks) . Local dealer fitted another under warranty? Bit long winded but I would ask the dealer about fitting instructions as apparently you are supposed to do something to the seal as per there tech bulletin.
