Good evening campers. Now i'm sure there will be a smart Hymerian out there that might actually know, who the maker of these lights are
😇
. We are after the red one, trying to see if we can cut the middle man out and go direct to the supplier, who i'm guessing may be in Germany. Look forward to your replies. TIA

A bit pricey aren't they? and that was the cheaper supplier. :Eeek:
Brownhills want £420 !!

It is one complete unit comprising top and bottom lens and bulb holders and reflectors. I will see if I can find where I obtained it.
Mine was the offside/rh and once I fitted the new one I repaired the broken unit which was cracked on the top.

Dealer in cologne, I damaged it in Germany first dealer I emailed had one in stock.
A few years ago with my last van I cracked a rear light, I left it until I was in France stopped first Hymer dealer on route they had one in stock similar price, even offer to give me a hand fitting it.

Needed to change a taillight bulb today, same set up as the original picture of this thread. 5 screws popped out easily, one just will not come out! It turns (without moving outwards) but something won’t let go. Given the cost of these things I’m reticent to try any sort of force. It’s the bottom right one of the clear lens in the picture. Any ideas what I might try next? A neighbour suggested drilling it out but a bit nervous about that.
Thanks

Sounds like the thread is stripped as they screw into threaded bushes, Try pulling the light unit off while turning it.

One unit includes reflectors and bulb holders , cost me around £200 through Hymer dealer Becks now closed, who ordered direct from Hymer I believe.
I did repair my damaged (rh) unit which was broken at the top which is a painted (inside) area so repaired with filler and re sprayed.

Probably thread into bodywork is stripped , I would gently lever the unit while undoing the screw making sure you pad area of body where leverage is used . Drilling is risky as one slip and it’s broken.

Thank you. I tried to leverage it whilst turning but was unsure whether I was doing the right thing so didn’t really have a good go at it. Having read both your comments about a stripped thread I’ll try again tomorrow (y)

When attempting to lever remember that unit could be stuck to body through constant contact over time so ease gently all round.
Good luck.

Thanks Larry. I’ve been gardening all day so having a break, will watch the relegation battles later then tackle it when it’s a bit cooler. 🤞

The damn thing just will not come out. I have tried easing it whilst someone else trying to unscrew and it just will not give a cm. I’m really reticent to drill so I’ll be contacting the garage who services/mot’s it to see what they can do. I just know if I try again I’ll be cracking it.
Thanks though for the suggestions and the prompt replies guys, much appreciated.

Worth considering a screw extractor set , cheap enough to buy. Drill a small hole in centre of screw and remover will help to pull and turn on screw.
