i have brought some rear lexus lights for my corsa b (2000 w reg) and im having a few problems

1) i have 5 bulbs in my original lights (brake, rear light, fog, reverse, indicator) but there are only 4 placed to connect the bulbs on the new lights. i take it the 2 bulbs which come with the lexus lights are multi function? e.g. do both brake and rear lights maybe?

2) when i tried to connect the lexus lights, the connector did not seem 2 sit right - dont know y, i when i tried 2 test the lights see if they work, the fuse for the brake and indicators blew

can anybody give me some advice on fitting these lights?

thanks

im gona hazard a guess and say you bought lexus lights
like these - http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Vauxhall-Cors...ryZ10404QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

if so, then if i remember correctly from my mates one, you have to buy individual bulb holders for these and hard wire them into the rearlight loom acordingly, instead of using the circuit board which comes with standard lights,

and yes you are correct about the bulbs you will need a stop/tail light twin coil bulb for these which will go in the centre one,

its individual bulb holders, and all the wires go into a connector which looks like it should fit in the plug in the car

yeah the lexus lights come in plug and play ready whereby you just plug them in mate and get the correct bulbs for rear/brake light(s)
