Tail light inter changability

Recommended Posts

Might be a silly question, but here goes.

Tail lights (whether JDM or export), are they able to be swapped left to right???

Just watching Import Monster for some JDM lights and am curious in case i can pick up a single light setup :angry:

Well.....it will with some work. You can easily remove the lenses and put them in your Aus housings. Check out my build thread, I had them apart, pretty easy really.

Does that affect how the lighting setup works then with reverse and the park lights?

My 240k GL manual doesn't seem to say ( that or I couldn't find it) and I can't read electrical diagrams at all -_-

I remembered seeing a thread about someone disassembling theirs and cleaning the lenses...should've guessed it was you adz

The wire looms are completely different for the AUS and JDM versions but it wont matter if you swap the looms. I've seen some cheap sets of lights going on Yahoo Japan though, what are you using as your search string?

Yeah ケンメリ is correct. I see tail light sets go for around $300-$400 at times which isn't too bad. If I see any I'll post them here for you.

Ah now that's handy advice. Do you guys use that jessestreeter for yahoo Japan? I've only used import monster before.

Also that search string in yahoo Japan, is that tail light specific?

you might be better off on bidding something like this http://page10.auctions.yahoo.co.jp/jp/auction/m103722059

Yeah a whole garnish set would be good, since I can get most gtr parts from otomoto but not tail light garnish. ATM that setup is only about $460 ... Not bad considering what you get.

Remember though I still am not going crazy until I land a coupe... THEN I'll go for broke

If you don't mind me asking, how long ago was that and how much?

Another silly question. No difference in tail lights between 2 dr and 4 dr? Same same?

Tail light units are the same (same enough to swap between coupe and sedan). It's just the surrounds that are different between sedan and coupe.
