Anyone confirm i can get away with running side lights in the indicator housing? (mine have 2 bulbs in them - one for indicators one for marker/side lights)  From what ive read there within the min/max height etc for side lights. Been running landy led 7" units for the last 6 months and not worried about them but mot due soon. failing that stick the landy ones on the side for mot purpose

Cheers for any input

Solely in the indicator housing? None in your headlamps?

Ahh you want to make the headlight ones redundant. I still use them. So I basically have 4x side lights

They must be white and 5w
If they are in the standard position then they will pass the regs on dimensions/limits etc.

If the examiner is a jobsworth then the lenses should be 'E' marked but few testers bother to check

The other option easy with LED's is to run a dim/dip setup with the 'dim' powered from the parking light circuit.
Home is where you park it
