Head lights, Park lights, Blinker lights, Stop lights etc
« on: December 12, 2014, 03:54:01 PM »
I have been shopping to replace a cracked park light lens up front and also getting a new lens for the rear combo lights.

Here are some Perentie part details for quick reference. The 4x4 and 6x6 'lights' parts appear to be identical.

Headlight, Lucas RHD H4 flat glass, 178mm (7inch), Made In England on lower arc of the glass rim, Lucas H4 logo in the center.
RPS: Lucas LUB332, LR RTC4615. Rear rubber cover R156206.
Wipac headlights reference the same numbers but came out on Defenders after 1993 AFAIK.

Front Indicator Light, orange, genuine, LEP England marking on lens.
RPS: RTC5013 is the whole unit with some loom.
Genuine units are still available and there are other knock-off brands that use the same part number.
The lens alone is R589285 (no screws incl.) Genuine units are still available and there are other knock-off brands that use the same part number.

Side Indicator Light, orange, genuine.
RPS: PRC7044 is the whole unit with some loom. $17

Front Parking Light, clear, genuine, 'LEP England' marking on the lens.
RPS: RTC5012 is the whole unit with some loom.
Genuine units are still available and there are other knock-off brands that use the same part number.
The lens alone is R589284 and cost $14.30 at the dealership (no screws incl.) Genuine units are still available and there are other knock-off brands that use the same part number.

Rear Combination Light, genuine, is a Hella unit and it is still listed in the Hella Catalogue.
RPS: AYG9552 -its Hella part 2401 (the whole unit).
Both driver side and passenger side are the same unit, but the driver side unit is mounted opposite way up to the other (or upside down in other words). The two mounting bolts are out the back.
The Hella 3 section combination lens by itself is Hella part 9.2401.01 and is mounted by two screws.
The Hella (string-thin) rubber strip/seal is also available.

Narva has a knock off unit (very close design to the Hella 2401): Narva part number 86710 is for the whole unit - AutoPro shops price it at $30. The Narva combination lens by itself is part number 86715 - AutoPro shops price it at $17.
One thing I'm not sure about is if the two mount bolts out the back are the same distance apart as the Hella.
There's lots of Narva units around.
Caution: the cheaper Narva rear combination replacement lens does not quite fit the Hella. Both the Hella and the Narva units look the same  -they have the same width- but their lengths are 5mm different.

Maplight, a Hella unit.
RPS: AYG9759, black anodised, Hella part number 2633 is for the whole unit (195mm flexible stalk). I have seen them for $50 on special/half price. There's also Hella 2636 (same but has 500mm flexible stalk). Globe is YL125, miniature incandescent, 12v 5W with bayonet base. around $20

FFR overhead light, has twin red lens section and white lens section.
RPS: AYG9803

Still to come:
Blackout Lights, rear...
Blackout lights, front...

I will add that lesson to the details. In the drawings attached, the Hella unit is 280mm x 100 and the Narva is 275mm x 100mm.

Hi Carzee

Is there any particular reason that you can't just replace the existing bulb with a LED bulb retaining the original fitting as long as the connection is the same. For instance I have replaced the reversing light bulbs with 7W cree LED bulbs which give much better illumination and seem to work fine. I was thinking of doing the same to the parkers, indicators and stop lights (different bulbs of course). Any comments would be appreciated.
Cheers,  Mike

Last night I put in replacement LED '21w bulbs' in the reversing light socket and it has to be 5 times better. Now I know they fit I may get extras for the rear indicators but the dual filament stop/park bulbs are a harder thing to do in LED I would guess.

I used these and we'll see how long they last.

You might need to replace the Flasher Relay with a LED compatible one, as the LEDs don't have the same load as incandescent bulbs, makes the flasher can flash at a faster rate (like when you blow a globe).

Yes flasher relay for LED will be needed or you can fit a load resistor to each indicator circuit.
I have just replaced all the instrument panel globes with LED globes that includes all the idiot lights, the only replacements I am battling with is the fuel,temp,amp gauge globes.
You do get a double contact LED globe replacement, I saw some at Jaycar.

These look like a suitable LED replacement. Haven't ordered mine yet but will hopefully soon.

I have looked thru the Hella LED combination rears in their current cattledog but an equivalent is not in the range. I noticed there were more LED lights overall than ever, just not the one we want.

Thanx Carzee, I will keep a eye on this one, you are extremely helpful, I will wait and see what you come up with and work from there, I don't always have time for lots of research. I was also looking at upgrading the headlight units with newer technology you know, plastic lenz with better designed reflector, and my ultimate would be the new LED head lights that are now available for them but my budget does not allow that yet, because I HAVE to buy two sets, there is no way the Perentie can have better lighting than my Rangy  ;D ;D

I was thinking of these for head lights for my two vehicles... ;D ;D

Cheaper off ebay from the states. Make sure you get the Phase 7.

Got two spare rear Hella lenses from here:
http://www.naauto.biz/catalogue/category112/category114/product1242

Genuine Hella, pair for $17 (plus postage, unless you live near Albury/Wodonga or wait until the annual Corowa event).
