61 rear lights, UK RHD. What should I have?

Post by Slavo » Wed Sep 12, 2018 12:02 pm

Hi,

I have replaced the rear corners on my UK RHD 61, 11 window (no semaphores).

The previous corners had some weird aftermarket taillights so can't go by what was there previously.

Can someone advise what should be there and if possible advise on the location of the tail light holes as the corners from autocraft didn't come with any....

Many thanks,

John

Try this... https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewt ... p?t=104091 (58-61)
Or this...https://www.thesamba.com/vw/forum/viewt ... p?t=500135 (62 and later)

I've included both because the Samba is a US website and some posters refer to 'Model Years' rather than production dates. Model years are usually August-on, so August or later 61 might fall in to the '62' page above.

Model years aren't helpful with VWs as they made so many incremental changes so if the above links leave you in doubt, check the electrical pages on Progressive Refinements to find out if yours was built before or after a change...
