Re: T31 extra brake/tail lights


Thanks for the tip!
by "outwards" do you mean towards the other side of the car or rear of the car?

cheers
andrew

Andrew,

Towards the rear of the car when you are standing behind it. Usually they're hard to take-off the first time but it will be easier to come off after that due to these pins that get slotted into the body of the car.

Yep, as Jalal said, towards the rear of the Xy.

Re: T31 extra brake/tail lights


I completed this mod yesterday in about 2 hours and less than $10!!

To remove the filings I used the vacuum cleaner as the air gets sucked in the other globe housing holes.

Thanks again Tony for the instructions

Re:


A little twist to this mod for you all.
I have been thinking about this for a couple of years but now I got time I am having a crack. But slightly different. I am heading to the wreckers on monday to pick me up any old busted up tail lights from any car as long as the bulb socket area is good. Why?

Well I am going to cut a hole in the X-trails tail lights and glue a piece that is cut out of the what ever tail lights for clipping in the bulbs. Make sense?? If not I will have pictures Monday or Tuesday.

Cheers
Ray

Re:


I reckon it'll be just as easy and probably less expensive to use Tony's method mentioned in the first post.

Re:


You are right Jal. You still make the 25mm or so hole but glue a cut out socket into the hole so the bulb holder clicks in well and doesn't leak. Tweaking the mod you could call it.

Re:


Mine didn't leak, even after ramming the hose with full pressure between the tailgate and the light, and I used no silicon.
For a couple of bucks for the sockets, can't go wrong.

Keep in mind the lights you buy from the wreckers will have thick plastic where the bulb socket is, where you have to drill the X Trail light is only a couple on mm thick.
