The new Rear Light units are attached to the Rear Wings using a plastic moulded block which ensure the lights are positioned horizontally. They are also supplied with a flat robber grommet, which sits between the light unit and the wing, and are pre-wired with connector that plugs into a counterpart mounted on the side skin.
The light units have two bolt studs moulded in the rear, but these are not long enough to pass through the Wing. A long Allen head stud passes through a washer, a small angle block and through the Wing to connect with the bolt studs and can be tightened up to secure the Rear Light.
UPDATE after PBC - be aware that the integrated fog lamps are offset to one side within the cluster and therefore the right and left sides need to be in opposite orientation from each other to ensure that both the Fog Lights are on the inboard side . Please see here.

Once in position, the connector can be plugged in and tightened, but then the cable also needs to be secured to prevent any risk of chaffing on the wheel. This was done with the addition of a P-Clip to the closest bolt head between the Wing and the Side Skin.
The Number Plate light is a nicely designed unit that includes the Reversing Light. It is a simple two blot connection through the Rear Skin and an econoseal connector to complete the electrical circuit. The surplus cable was tie-wrapped out of the way onto the rear chassis rail.

Once all the Rear Lights were fitted and connected, a full electrical test was performed. Ignition on, immobiliser deactivated, all switches were tested:
Font day time running lights
Headlamps - dipped
Headlamps - full beam
Indicators, fron, back, repeaters, left & right
Rear fog lights
Number plate light
Wipers (not fitted but motor operation verified) half speed, full speed
Washer bottle pump
Heater, half speed, full speed
The only issue I found was the left headlamp was no longer working (previously tested okay) which was quickly traced to the econoseal connector not being fully pushed together.
