  1. Ok so pulled out one of the rear light clusters but if i am looking at the correct bulb for the brake light it has 3 wires into it any idea which 2 i need to splice the red and black wires from spoiler into ? Would it work if i spliced them into the 3rd brake light as that only has 2 wires?
  2. Bulb issue sorted it was because i put an LED bulb in high/3rd brake light ?? Replaced with regular again is hidden in parcel shelf now anyway as not used. Even with all the bank holidays i have still not wired this spoiler light up as i dont have the connection on the corner on the boot lid only one in the centre so need to run longer wires into standard brake light or 3rd brake light but just to check What wire should i use is it a certain gauge or whatever as will rather buy the right stuff that works than just use some random wire out the shed? Cheers
  3. I've searched web looking for instructions how to wire these up as i bought a pair hi/low to replace originals that came without instructions all i found was videos of trucks with massive ship and train horns on. I could only see 1 short video of something similar but it had a whole load of wires including to the battery and a relay ? Do i need to go with this as i was hoping they were just plug n play as i hate fiddly wiring jobs. They have 2 terminals (not marked) and the bracket bar which i guess is the earth ? Any ideas/diagrams Cheers
  4. I went with the clear fogs and am happy. Only £40 brand new too bargain on ebay. Just need to add some extra wire to reach the rear brake light to wire in the spoiler light at weekend as i cannot find the mentioned connection that should be under the boot lid? However since putting the fogs in my handbrake light stays on and googling showed a rear bulb issue. I did use the red bulbs that came with the lights and they light up when turned on but the warning light only came on once i installed the fogs? Any ideas
  5. Lookin at that pic i am in 2 minds whether to change the fogs to clear or not ?
  6. The brake light just needs wiring up it has 2 seperate wires red+black but i thought it was supposed to be a plug i guess it got changed think i am goin to splice them onto rear brake light or the parcel shelf one which i need to hide anyway.
  7. Its on. Same principal as the blu tack (ihgs300) The 3m worked spot on. well the 2nd time as i needed to make the spoiler side less sticky then it came away and stuck to the car easily. (Hopefully pic worked forgot how to post pic from ipad) Thanks
  8. Will try using the 3m in the same way n see how it goes. Will post a pic afterwards when fitted or wont if i mess it up ! Thanks
  9. I tried some double sided pads stuff before that didnt go too well but will go get some blue tack and try that Thanks. I have a roll of 3m double sided too which was great for the small lip one i just took off but i guess it has bolts because it needs them n dont fancy risking it fallin off in a couple of weeks
  10. I bought a spoiler and am finaly round to fitting it. Its a genuine lexus part the spoiler that is slightly raised with a brake light. The only issue i have is getting the holes marked for drilling. It has 2 either end and 2 in the centre (1 bolt and 1 for cable) i read from new they come with some kind of template but obv i dont have that so was wondering what anyone could recommend instead so as i get the holes marked in the right place? I have the one shot at drilling them so i need to mark them correctly Thanks
  11. I not long put springs on mine and you definately gotta slow right down for speed bumps. I never used to bother and didnt get any scraping especially at rear as standards are very high. But now i crawl over them after catching all the plastics underneath and ripping them off the other week. Plus as Stuart mentions its a stiffer ride too so if you hit em too hard you definately feel it. I lowered mine on tein springs purely because the rear looked way too high but now it does look a lot better and should handle better. But I would still definately recommend lowering though.
