These are direct replacements for the ones on my '95 Exec

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/12V-24V-HELLA-2PF961167021-CLEAR-CARAVAN-MARKER-POSITION-SIDE-LIGHT-LAMP-/321345114963?hash=item4ad1a95353

I bought two but, be warned, the originals are gobboed in with copious amounts of black silicon rubber that has to be wrecked to remove it, and replaced with similar silicon rubber to seal the new fittings.

The fittings have the bulb holder contacts on the back, which just have spades for a receptacle crimp. You'll have to crimp the wires on, plug them in and then silicon the whole caboodle back into the hole.

If your Clubman is the same as my Exec of course.

P.S. I discovered that the original screw holes were stripped and too close to the edge of the hole to re-use, so I also had to select another location for the screw holes and drill it very very carefully, or I would have had to use some GRP filler to make good.

Bit of a censored! nightmare really.

Same as the medallion loads of silicon sealant behind them and stripped screws. While you have them out put some led bulbs in them they look a lot better bright white than the orange glow.
