    If flipping the clip nut, you will also want to remove the tail light. Tail light upper mount holes indicated below:

    Close up of upper Evotech mount (note that we used an M5 nut [not included] because it does not require tail light removal to install)

    Not strictly true, if positive terminal is connected to the shell of the bulb then you potentially have a short circuit in the event of lamp damage, it may not happen but I have seen a truck lighting system burnt out for that exact reason. Positive wire should always be connected to the centre terminal of the bulb.

    Great, thanks for the tip. I did not know this.

    Hi Steve,

    finally fitted my tail tidy, your instructions were extremely helpful and made a jigsaw puzzle much easier.

    Thanks again.
