Rear lights on the APE

Are the rear lights on an APE just normal bulbs & does it also have an LED light. If one of them fails does the whole rear light unit have to be replaced. If yes how much does Fiat / Abarth charge.

Re: Rear lights on the APE

Well the light is an led strip. The indicator and brake lights are just bulbs. These can be changed easily however you probably have to get a new unit if the led goes. I changed all the horrible amber indicator bulbs on the car to chrome ones this week. The main problem with the rear light units is the condensation that gets trapped inside.

About 150 CHF per tail light.

One side cost a little bit more than the other IIRC, but I don't know why.
