    Avant rear lights.....

    Hello Fellas,
    I have got hold of some facelift rear lights for my pre-fl avant. How do I fit these? Is it a rear bumper off job or are all the fixings relatively easy? If anyone can advise/explain on how to fit the nice sexy clear strip taillights I have It would be ace!

    Think they use an 8mm nut to secure and there are 4 on the back of the unit. Easy to remove. You may need to do a pin swap on the wiring plug though if they are like on the saloon where the revers and indicator are swapped over

    Ha ha Floyd. I've been real busy as of late, so needed/need to thin out my time spent on any non-business related site period. Got the TB replaced and the stalling prob has gone(I'm getting a ferw more mpg too). I also replaced all the front CA's with the meyle hd kit. I aked ALLGERMAN PARTS to send me the s4 type TRE instead of the normal ones. With the TB and CA's it actually feels almost like a new car now. Wish I had done it sooner!

    Sorry about that Floyd. I was suret that if anyone understood at least one member would (The flying Scotsman)...............But seriously, those two things have made such a bloody difference! Now toying with the idea of doing a full paint correction. But I probably can't be arsed. Its a 12 year old car for christ sake!
