Number plate lights
« on: 10 January 2018, 18:23:09 »

All four screws retaining the number plate lamps on my FL estate are rusted solid and will probably result the lamp bodies being destroyed whilst freeing  them.
Both bulbs are OK at present but NCT ( mot) soon due ,sod's law and all that ........
can anyone tell me if  the FL saloon and estate the same lamp holder ?
I see saloon LED's on Ebay that I'd probably fit ,if they did  .
Cheers

They're not interchangeable  :'(

Plenty of choice though...

Thank you DG there's a good selection there.
S'funny though the listings suggest they are the same.
Cheap enough so I'll order and see.
Thanks.
