I ordered the third brake light and it is on its way. They are extremely proud of their parts but I decided to just buy the set up. Anyway, is there enough wire to reach the area that it needs to plug into the third brake light. I took a quick peak at it and it doesn't appear to have enough wire to reach to the top of the car where the light will mount.

If its a factory item, I would be very surprised if it doesn't have a lead long enough, terminating in an AMP Econoseal two way plug, to reach matching socket on loom.

ETA: you may have to assemble the supplied connector after fitting lamp to car.

My factory item came with rather short leads. Idealy I guess the leads should be around 75cm long to reach the loom connector adjacent to the fuel pump.

Whoops blush, just spotted your picture Andy on OP's previous thread. If the loom socket doesn't have enough spare cable wrapped away to reach, I would be tempted to obtain fresh female pins and extend the cables to loom socket to reach the plug on lamp. AMP Econoseal connectors are readily available on eBay.

ETA: Loom schematic does show only 15cm at best on that portion of loom eminating from convoluted cover frown

When this light made of "gold" arrives, I will cut into the loom and see if the wire is long enough to reach. I am hoping it is just wrapped up in there.
