Front Arch marker lights

Recommended Posts

Do I have to use the WF supplied front marker lights ? I would really like to use some smaller better looking items and was wondering what the spec needs to be for IVA ?

 

Can anyone offer some light on this subject?

:laugh:

no you don’t.

Many of us have used the little 20mm or so press fit lights from the likes of car builder solutions - I used the clear style, but they do orange as well. 

Hang on a mo, I’ll get the link...

Only if you want them to fall off repeatably :cry: I passed IVA with a smaller LED 20MM diameter clear item from Car Buiilder Solutions.

Here we go, they are essentially a roughly 20mm light that is a press fit into a sort of custom moulded 28mm did grommet, that fits through a hole drilled in the wing. Really neat looking, loads use them. And they only stand about 8mm proud of the wing.

Thankyou very much ! Order placed.

 

I was slightly worried for pedestrians with the size of those horrors !

I've used the same only without the grommet so they're even more discrete.

I'm in the process of fitting my 20mm wing lights but have a question, do you need to keep the original side repeaters just below the windscreen as well for the IVA test ?

My car passed ok with just repeaters on the front wings. Don't believe you need further repeaters currently. Section 23 of the IVA manual provides details:  https://assets.publishing.service.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/738819/individual-vehicle-approval-inspection-manual-passenger-vehicles.pdf

You don’t need one below windscreen. My car passed its with 20mm wing ones.
