Spare wheel light


Hi All
I have a new spare wheel light housing for my 1980 C3, and I have the correct cable
To feed it. I just canít find its home. The FAM shows roughly where it goes, but there are no holes for it. Any ideas?

Re: Spare wheel light


Here's a photo of the light on our '78. A curious fitting that appears to block some of the light lens. It is actually positioned to the left hand side of centre and you can see, there are a few holes on the frame on ours, but not sure which, if any, are "stock"!

VMT for that. I had a feeling that was the spot.

Re: Spare wheel light


That's a curious set-up Adrian, does it actually light the spare wheel, it seems to shine in the wrong direction?
