Great thanks! I prefer to do things myself and learn if I can. So do I just pop off the plastic screen to the speedo and stick the below over the existing KPH one?



Just had a thought, I'm assuming the odometer showing KMs won't be an issue especially for MOT when they record the 'mileage'?

Donít think thatís an issue for MoT.

As I mentioned earlier I donít know if you can remove the glass but I do have a faulty one I can look at and see if thereís a way.

2009 fiat 500c LHD lights and Speedo

You can take them apart. Iíve just done it.

You have to take it out, turn it over and youíll find 4 screws. Take them out and you can then prise it apart allowing you to stick the sticker in place.

As for odometer I think you can change it from Km to miles in MES.

Re: 2009 fiat 500c LHD lights and Speedo

Wow thanks a lot for trying that. Would it be possible with the Speedo still in the car? If not, is removing the Speedo from the dash easy?

And what is MES?

Thanks again!

I think you will have to change over the rear fog ligt and reverse light. I had to do the same a few years back.
Thanks lemontaz thanked for this post

No you have to take it out as the screws are on the back. Itís easy to do. Iíll do a separate thread with how to do it. Iím doing one on my latest car as Iím changing the dash so Iíll do a video when I do it. Maybe next week unless Christmas gets in the way.

Hi, thanks. Yes I looked at mine properly today (photo attached) and the fog light is on the rear left only. Did you have to buy two new U.K. rear light units ? Could I just add a third party fog light on the right bumper?Click image for larger version

Thanks, yes I had a look today and I only have rear fog light on the left. Did you get 2 new U.K. units for each side, or could I just add an aftermarket fog light bottom right? Just thought too, I could just get a U.K. right side rear light with the fog light in and keep the French left so I have 2 fog lights!Click image for larger version

No I routed the wiring so to invert the lights and changed the rear lens, but you can just add another rear fog light on the over side.

So you just changed the right lens and routed the fog light from left to right? But isnít the opposite one the reverse light meaning Iíd have to change both the lenses and switch the wiring over?

Ok, makes sense, Iíll get 2 U.K. rear light lenses then.

I just looked at wires behind each. For the left one with the fog light (first photo) which wire will I need to cut and redirect to the right side so the fog button activates on the right, and which wire in the second photo (current right side) will I need to cut and redirect to the left for the reverse light? Iím guessing brown on left and green/white on right?

Hi Italian Job - would you be able to advise which of the above wires are the reverse and fog light wires?

Re: 2009 fiat 500c LHD lights and Speedo

I was thinking instead to purchase an aftermarket rear fog light to affix to the offside and run a wire to it from the existing fog light connection so that both the current and new fog lights would come on when the dash button was pressed (so I would have one of the left and one of the right). Would this work?

If so, could I just screw into the bumper a lamp like this from ebay?
