Fitting AU clear side repeaters to ED

Hey All,

Ive got some spare AU clear side repeaters here, went to put them on my ED but ive found that the actual bulb holder is larger than the AU one and dosent fit in...

How did you E Series people who have fitted them do it? Did you swap the holder with an AU one? Trim it down?....After that it should be a straight snap in to the current hole?

Any advice/tips appreciated

Extreme

Re: Fitting AU clear side repeaters to ED

Cut two of the square locking blocks off opposite each each other..The E series used four while AU used two...You'll need to cut some plastic off the protection mould too, to make cover fit......

Re: Fitting AU clear side repeaters to ED

the globe holder thingy is rubber so trim it with a knife.. Do a search mate theres a pic in the forums with all you need to know.
They do look good once on .

Re: Fitting AU clear side repeaters to ED

its also hard to put them on facing the correct way. 'Pointing forwards'. I uised some glue. did the trick :D

Re: Fitting AU clear side repeaters to ED
