Rear lights
« on: December 16, 2015, 11:07:22 »

Ii have introduced myself on the w111 forum page, with a question which is probably more appropriate here: The rear lights on my car are shared with some w113 models I believe. The rear bulb holders are missing on my car, and the search for some has proven very difficult. I found a thread on here discussing the said lights, and I would like to ask a question..on the attached photo, the lights have what appear to be two resistors/diodes? in the casing. The wiring diagram I have for w111's does not have these on. Please could someone explain the purpose of them, and maybe show how they are wired in? I am considering making my own bulb holders and that info would be really helpful, thanks.

There are two diodes allowing the use of just one bulb doing the job of side lights and parking lamp.
