    as above, I have front and rear led lights and front indicators don't appear to be led and neither do rear indicators? Haven't checked reverse lights will do that tomorrow.

    Are these the ones in the link to Amazon? Same set for reverse and fog lights? Anything for indicators?

    Kev, i don't believe the H11's which are for the fogs will do reverse. However, the smaller ones in Loz's picture should be able to do both reverse and indicator.

    Am hoping that mine (fogs only) will be delivered on Friday, got the email today to say they had been dispatched, so that'll give me something to do on Christmas Eve; an early pressie for the van.

    All done.
    Remove 2 phillips screws and slide the light cluster sideways to release it from the 2 clips.

    Here you can see both the reversing lamp W16W White and the turn signal lamp W16W Amber.

    Replace the lamp and fit in reverse.

    Before and after.

    WP_20161222_17_34_31_Pro.jpg My LED fog bulbs have arrived. Now off to rig up an inspection lamp in the drive so I can go and fit them. @Loz and @C5 VWT I am guessing there is no difficulty in getting the big old power unit box in to the housing as well?

    no issues with space at all @DaveyB, as Loz mentioned , just cable tie the wires to something as there is that much space it will all rattle around :) :thumbsup:

    Might have to get some of those smaller ones to do the reverse and rear turn indicators now.
