panda third brake light

had an afternoon on the cars today much overdue i have been soooooo busy just lately no excuse i know. first up was to fit the third brake light to the panda as its the daily driver i thought it was a good investment with the dark nights i would hate someone to hit me up the arse!!! it fitted well its a genuine fiat item i brought one years ago for sally the sisley (now with allen fletcher) but never got round to fitting it so when i sold sally i sold the light on ebay i rang fiat and gave them the part number to see if it was still avaliable and it was! so i ordered one after that i gave it a good clean, then gave the cinquecento a good clean then the seicento only to find an inch of water in the seicentos foot well out with the carpets again. i traced the leak to a missing gromet on the bulk head so all's well again! oh then as i was in cleaning mode i gave paulas fiesta a clean too didnt do anything on bj the 126 but i took a pic of him peeking out from under his cover just to prove he is still alive.

Re: panda third brake light

We've got them fitted to all the Panda's, but didn't stop a Corsa going into the back of the 750L with me in it Sept last year. Good thing was the corsa was smashed bits, the Panda - not a mark! Couldn't believe ones luck!

Re: panda third brake light

When I get around to it I'll add a pick of the 3rd brake light on the Selecta (it iluminates 'www.fiatforum.com' on the rear screen), and the interesting and rare one on the 750L with intergrated LED 3rd indicators!

Re: panda third brake light

I've finally managed to get the camera to talk to the PC.

Here are the pics of the third brake light on the Selecta which I think is the brightest and clearest of all our Panda's and the one on the 750L with LED indicators attached.

The flash of the camera spoils it, but the 3rd brake light shows up the ff sticker very well at night

And below is the 750L (Notice the twin reverse lenses?)

I thought I would also mention that on the 1000CL and the Selecta I've fitted LED tail/brake lights. They're also very effective day and night.

Re: panda third brake light

Not sure if your asking about it being LED or off of LHD Panda. The LED is a straight bulb replacement brought off of eBay, and the LHD reverse lense I imported through eBay from Italy / France, can't remember which.

If purchasing the LED bulb replacements, purchase the 36 LED units which project LEDs to the side aswell as rearwards so more light is emitted from the lense because its reflected within the lense. They're slightly more expensive, but are the best. Cost about £10-£12 for the pair inc P+P! Bargain. We've got them in two of the Panda's. Never have to worry about a bulb blowing because LED last forever and use minmal power!

The Fog lamp on the 750L is now a single Fog lamp unit mounted below bumper in the middle of the car, so it still has one.

As far as the 3rd brake light in the 750L with the indicators goes, I've not seen another since, dispite looking everywhere! I don't think there was much of a market for them.

Hope this helps.
