@Richard Fox I'm loving these at the moment but haven't seen an Elgrand with them to know for sure was thinking of painting inserts the same white as the van View attachment 12820
I like them!! But not sure my ocd could cope with the spokes looking like they're pointing different directions on each side..

I’ve got to have a look at the rear screen washer today at it doesn’t seem to work, is the washer motor easy to get at, has anyone done this yet?
It could be a blocked jet, I had a similar problem with my fronts not working, so brought replacements from @stevemen @ Tojo Motors, all fitted and working again, happy days :)

Thanks, yes it seems to be one washer motor for both front and back... so it may be a blockage...

Before you buy replacements try to push a thin piece / strand of wire into the jet. Might just be blocked with a build up of dirt.

Separate a tube joint somewhere and stuff the end in a foot pump, sometimes a bit of air pressure will clear it.

The garage tried everything they could think of, even had an air compressor going through it at one point... nothing :-(

washer motor is in bottle at front beside front jet from memory
Thanks, I found a pic on eBay of a second hand washer bottle and realised it has just one pump for front and rear, so didn’t bother start there as the front one was working, it was a nozzle blockage. Sorted now.

I am using them as fog lights.
T5
Wanted smoked ones so you could not see them but not impressed with the brightness but there is no law on how bright they have to be.
I might look for some others.
Now wait for my led reversing light bulbs then i can have 2 reversing lights again.
