Indicator Repeaters

by brianakanishin » Fri Jun 23, 2017 3:50 pm

I have a small problem that has somehow got larger. Somebody knocked off my side repeater and broke the connector. I went to Vauxhall and they told me the part is no longer available. I sourced another from eBay that I was quoted as a direct replacement. However. When it was delivered today., the connectors are somewhat different.

How do I access the connectors? And judging from the photos, will these actually fit without modifying the panel?

I also found out that these are not street legal but I can change them for smoked or clear.

I don't think there are any connectors, you'll need to cut and splice the wiring and add a couple of female spade connectors to plug onto the new fitting

What about fitting to the body? Do they slot in from behind or from the front?

As for wiring in new connectors, there is not a lot to work with as you can see.

They should fit from the front only, no rear access is required

Oh, ok. Thanks. I assume the sticky pad on the actual lens will create the weather seal to stop it rusting.

It wasn't such a hard job after all. And for £3.50 they don't look too bad considering my car has no custom parts and is rather tatty these days.

That looks good. Well done. Isn't there a connection plug on the inside of the wing to unplug the repeater?

Nope, that would have been smart design - but seriously, it's wired direct to harness which makes no sense!

I dug out the gunk from the original unit to give me a few more mm of wiring to work with. Doing this removed the necessity to crimp on some extra cable to make it easier to work with fat fingers.

The idiot that painted my car decided the best place to snip the indicator wiring was hard up against the inner guard... both sides. I still to this day can't get my head around that.
