Please tell me, how to do it using NCS expert.
I'm afraid of wiring, but coding solution is ok for me.
Please tell me the function strings in NCS Expert to activate or deactivate.
Thank you! :P

It honestly takes 2 mins, if that to wire it! All you do is put in a bridge and its done! :thumbsup:

Done the wire bridge, very quick and easy, like this mod (and takes 2 mins to remove as well:) ) :thumbsup:

That's the good thing though mate, you need no wiring skills! Simply get some wire, strip the ends and insert each end into the correct terminal block... Done! If your anywhere near northampton, pop by and I'll be happy to do it for you whilst you have a cuppa!

I don't know how to code it, just wire bridge it :thumbsup:

only additional thing I did was to solder the wires and flatten them to make a small spade-like connection

Just done this mod using the soldered link method.

I had a good look one side done vs the other 'standard' for the difference between between the sidelight brightness.

Yes it's a little brighter but really not that noticeable. The fact that when the brake is pressed the whole circle now lights up makes it very noticeable that you are braking and no one will miss the difference between side light and brake light.

V happy.

Just done using this method although i spotted a glitch in what you wrote. I matched up all the coloured wires and yes they did sit in slots 1 and 4, on the RIGHT ONLY.

I had to reverse this method on the oppisite side, left, for this to work.
So on the left i had wires in slots 6 and 3.

If you are going to do this method roll down the black goo-ey tape and clip slots 3 and 6 together on the left and slots 1 and 4 together on the right.

I did the mod through using a wire to bridge the connection. No complaints, sailed through MOT and much prefer the full circle look. IMHO the half circle looked like a bulb had blown :). So simple a mod there seemed no need for a coding alternative (never heard if there is one available)
