All modern cars have reverse and rear light clusters that house bulbs that illuminate when either the brakes or the reverse gear is engaged. Being at the rear of the car, these light clusters are prone to breakage through the driver not watching what is behind the vehicle when reversing or being bumped from behind by another vehicle. But don’t fret as these plastic light cluster coverings are easily replaced. Access to these light clusters is usually through the back panel inside the boot or the hatchback of the vehicle.
The rear lights of a car should always be in good working order so that cars driving behind the vehicle can see when the brakes have been applied or the car is about to reverse. It is also a criminal offence to drive with a broken rear light cluster and the fine that is issued by the traffic police usually outweighs the purchase of a new light cluster. So don’t hesitate when the reverse light and rear light cluster is damaged, find a replacement as soon as possible and have it fitted.
The easiest way to replace this component is to go online and find the correct part suited to your car by inputting the vehicle’s year model, make and engine capacity. Doing this will locate the correct part, which can then be added to the online basket. Once the online transaction is complete, the part will either be delivered to your doorstep or directly to the mechanic that is fitting the new light cluster for you, should you so wish. What’s more is that all this can be done from the comfort of your own home.
