Default WTB- Canadian wheel arches

Hi,

A while back, I bought some wheel arches (the part that attaches to the front and rear bumper) from a guy in Canada. They don't have the parking lights like our DOT ones do. Recently, one of the fronts went missing. Does anyone have a line on a set?

Thanks,

Tyler

same with euro. some sales counters can get them for you. I'm sure BMA auto parts can get them for you too. You just need the part number... realoem.com and pretend the car is european, you'll find them there.

My car is actually from canada and has the reflectors. Weird. Well now I know I need to swap them out for non reflector/light ones since i was going to darken them anyway to make them blend in more. What did you do about the lights though?

You just leave them tucked behind the fender. I zip tied mine loosely.

I did nothing for the lights, just took the bulbs out and taped up the connector real good and tucked it up into the body somewhere it would not be too exposed to the elements.

I'd suggest leaving the bulbs in place if you don't live in a very moderate climate like SoCal or else wrap the ends in something protective.

It may have been me that you bought them from.

You need EURO replacements. Canadian cars have the same reflectors as the US cars.

I just looked up the part numbers on realoem.com and took those to the dealership. I think they were about $40 per corner, but took about 4 weeks to come in.

Can you share the numbers because I couldn't find them on that site. Wasn't to sure in which section to look in. Please.

realoem.com
choose your car --> r50/53/56 etc --> model --> region (choose europe) --> prod. month --> vehicle trim --> bumper... then you'll see what you'll need.
