LED headlights (and indicators)

Submitted by Pedro on Sat, 2021-01-09

While I'm searching some HV batteries, I decided to replace the front headlights, which are a bit weak, with some new LED ones.

I found a pair on ebay for around 30 euros which seem nice and also have DRL and indicators.

I just had to design a couple of metal sheets to secure the headlight to the body and gave them a black paint job to disguise them under the front grill.

New indicator stalk

Another quick update, this time about the new indicator stalk. The high beams were not working and after some wiring and fuse tracing I found out that the culprit was the indicator stalk. The first plan was to open and fix the original part but they are very expensive. Luckily, they are exactly the same as the ones in the Renault Express vans so I ordered a brand new for under 30€.
