Re: De tango front lights on a punto

Could you not just get clear ones from a scrapyard ?

I bought my Punto detangoed and I had to replace one of the indicators due to damage, cost about a fiver IIRC. That said mine is just an old mark 1.

Lenses need to be cut off and then re-attached with silicone sealant.

Guide in the members section on www.puntomk2.co.uk

Did it to my 8v last year, not as hard as it seems!

just use this free guide to cut fronts off https://www.fiatforum.com/punto/3726...-de-tango.html

then removing the orange bit will be clear to work out, then just go buy a set of silver bulbs that flash orange

Ahh didn't realise that was on here!

If you havn't got a dremel just buy some hacksaw blades and a use a pair of grips to hold them.

The orange bit has three clips that you can pop off with a screw driver.

Make sure they're uberly clean before you re-attach the lense too!
