Hi,

Any advice would be useful, Not in the game of re-inventing the wheel (even on simple jobs !!)

Whilst looking for DRLs for our m/home. I found these round mountings that might be possible to mount in place of the fog lights were they are not fitted.

Hi Tony

The ones you got from Halfords as you say come with short Red and Black wires with bullet connectors on. The auto unit from Amazon comes with long Red and Black leads with the opposite connectors so they just push together. You can cable tie back excess cable or if your handy with a soldering iron reduce the length. You are then left with 3 wires to find homes for , Red, Black and Orange. RED to battery Positive. Black to Battery Negative. Orange to the side light . If you remove the sidelight from the holder, there is a short (6 inch) black sleeving leading up to the connector with ridges around it. It has black tape around it. This can be peeled off revealing a slit in the sleeving,Open the slit and locate the Green wire. Gently snip some of the insulation off and solder the Orange wire to it. Re-fit and tape back up. Looks very neat and not disturbed. Or you could just use a scotch connector. Depends how neat you want to be,

If your fitting the DRL's in the upper outer grills the you don't need the brackets that are on them. They fit very snug in there, I use plastic cement which dries in 5 mins just to hold them in because of bumps

Thanks for the information, I will let you know how I get on.

I see what you mean about a "push fit" into the grill, I'm not too sure using plastic cement and will see if a mastic could be used.

The mastic bead could be broken, hopefully with no damage to the paintwork.

Mine have been there (in the upper grille) in my previous IQ and current one for over a year with no added adhesive, and they have not moved at all.
The roads here are pretty bad too!

Looking at them they are in 2 halves creating a seam, as they are pushed in the grill the seam is gripped by the edges of the bumper which grip into the seams of the lights. Very firm
