Re: panda third brake light

Defo getting one!

Can they be ordered over the internet or does it have to be from the dealer?

If internet can someone please provide the link

That's good to know. Visited Desira Fiat of Norwich yesterday and what a bummer.

They couldn't find the part no for it, and said there was no 3rd brake light (went in on spare of the moment thing, so didn't have number from here ) and the 2 other things I needed for the Sisley were discontinued and a silly price

Re: panda third brake light

What confusing them is that the part number is not a uk one and that's why they won't get it, it has to be ordered from italy

Re: panda third brake light

It arrived!



The price is now 35.88 plus vat thou
But I did check with Nigel in parts and if your parts department say 'sorry mate, you can't get them...' they're talking crap. Anything that Fiat in Italy has a Fiat dealer can get.
Shame the instructions are in Italian but hay, it's only 2 wires so I can't really go wrong, LOL

Jim

Re: panda third brake light

Right, update from my end (Norwich). Happened to go into Desira Fiat of humble Norwich this afternoon. Gave him the part number, and all seemed well. Different price to you Jim, £37 inc VAT (about £32 ex). So he checked on another computer to check about ordering one and he said that although they're not coming up as discontinued, they're compleatly out of stock in the UK (as to be expected, not being a UK part) and compleatly out of stock in Italy

He said normally there is a date saying when Italy will be getting more in, but there wasn't which would make him think, they may be having trouble, or only just having decided to discontinue them.

I'm going to try Desira Fiat of Gt Yarmouth on Saturday when over there and see what they're response is, I'm getting a little pee'd off now, lol.

Have you managed to fit yours Jim? Does it clip into place, or use sticky pads? Any pic's if possible please

Jon.

Re: panda third brake light

Sounds like he couldn't be arsed, what a load of tosh... Like I got the last one in Italy then, LOL?

Phone Mervyn Stewarts in Belfast on 02890 682255, ask for parts and get Nigel or Colin and give them the part number and ask if they can check Desra's story out. And the first person that says 'Oh but your in Ireland' is going to get a 3rd brake light up the arse for not knowing that I'm in the UK and for being a thicko at geography!

Anyway, that bit of yellow tape is double sided and it sticks on to the metal above the hatch and then there looks like a bracket sticks to it and clips in behind the rubber window strip (the tape seems only to hold the bracket, the weight of the lamp seems to be held mainly by the window rubber if that makes sense) and then there's 2 screw to hold on the lamp, some wires and a scotch lock

Nice of them to give you everything to do the job...

Jim

(oh and mine ain't fitted yet cause I'm flying out tonight to bring the whole 500 USA thing to an end this weekend so Sylvia will just have to wait.... )
