- Reversing Bulb Replacement
- The PinksterSubscriber
The reversing lights on the PinkMobile are, to be frank, absolutely abysmal, can hardly see a thing behind me when I’m reversing onto my drive, so I’ve decided to try & replace them.
Problem is I can’t find find anything brighter than a P21W that will do the job.
does anyone out there have any suggestions on what I can replace the current P21W’s with?

just fit a foglight bulb.
they tend to be brighter – and usually its the lense in most cases that makes it red.
on my cars – one side is the foglight and the identical light/fitting on the otherside is the reversing light.
but as i said my reversing light is pish so i just turn on the fog light when i need the extra light.Posted 5 years agoaracerMember
I checked my bulbs, and as I thought both the fog and reversing are 21W, which I thought was the highest rating for a standard (non headlight) bulb. Though they’re not interchangeable anyway as the fog is a dual filament with the tail light.
The reason for recommending something other than upgrading the bulbs is that you’re unlikely to be do that easily.Posted 5 years agobackinirelandMember
Fit extra lights or brighter led bulbs

When I had the landrover I discovered that there was wiring on both sides for a reverse lamp but only a lamp on one side, possibly for left hand drive markets. I bought another lamp and wired it in hence the extra light below the foglight. I also fitted the rear work lamp with a 100watt bulb and a switch on the dash to turn it on when reversing. Also useful for tail gaters or those who didn’t dip when behind……Posted 5 years ago
