Rear Light...

Hey guys... I was hoping to replace my rear fog light with a reverse one! How hard is this to do and how much do you think it will cost me???

Thanx Russ

Re: Rear Light...

It's pretty easy to do. Even the manual shows you how to do it (for replacing the bulbs).

There is a clip behind the bumper, on the underside of the light assembly. If you push it up the whole thing should slide out. This will not make it work like a reverse light. You need to change the wiring for that, but ford should do it (they say they will when they fit the factory body kit, so it has to be possible) or at least tell you how.

Cost wise, I think it was around $30-$40 dollars, but I checked that a while ago. If you don't change the wiring, be prepared for even more people to tell you that your drivers side reverse light is broken!

Re: Rear Light...

Zetec has done this mod to his car... but I don't think he has it wired up yet. He might be able to tell you a little more about it!

Tim!

Re: Rear Light...

That's affirmative, but I'm yet to wire it up. Am saving up to take 53 odd jobs to my local dealership and get the car fixed... dodgy headlight globe, reverse light wired up, list is growing!!!
