    Default Rear Lights - What type of Connector/Pin???

    As in the title, what type of pin/connector is actually used in the rear light connector plug?
    I am thinking about having fog lights on both sides.
    Thanks.

    Dont think you're allowed to do that, but even if it is allowed I dont think you should, cause wouldnt it make it harder for cars behind to notice you braking if both fog lamps are shining.

    You are allowed to, many cars come with 2 rear fog lights, and tbh the centre brake light is a bit of a give away too.

    I cut a rear light connector off an Astra G in a scrap yard (they're the same as the Vectra/Signum.)

    Removed the pins and then slotted the pin into the correct blank in my Signum. Then tapped into the wire to the left rear fog light.

    Jobs a good un.
