Sealing the rear lights

Everything that doesn't belong in the previous categories probably belongs here. Interiour (how are the seats mounted? how to remove the CEM?) and exteriour (how to replace the popup-lights shock absorbers or a door) are discussed here!

Can I add myself to the want list please?

Could someone PM me Joep's details so I can see how to obtain his new seals?

Thanks and Best Regards,

Jay. :D

I have bought Joeps seals in the past when I replaced both my back light clusters. They do the job as good as the original ones. But you may need to add some clear silicon sealant on top of that if you want to get a complete full sealing of the lights. One another design defect in our beloved 480s.

Hi all, have tried to pm Joep regarding rear light seals but does not appear to have sent( end of last month). If anyone has his email would much appreciate it. Hope he is still making them!

He’s absolutely still doing them - I’ve had a set in the last month or so. I usually contact him via Facebook, so if you need me to check with him, drop me a pm with the email address you used to contact him and I can ask him to check.
