    Maybe stick to the Jeep section?

    I really wish that the admins would ban you permanently from this forum, you are forever involved in posting stupid remarks and comments. If you cannot say anything constructive or positive rather keep quiet. You must be one hell of a sad lonely person always focusing on the negative things in life.

    As the saying goes: Offence is not given, just taken.

    Jelo is continually disproving that brevity is the soul of wit, but he is right about the light bar.

    Maybe he should be issued with a mandatory smiley count.

    Why are you always in such a bad mood? Experience...

    Final update
    I went to Ford Fury William Nicol again today to get a quote for the faulty module.
    Turns out that it’s the height adjustment module that’s buggered. Unfortunately it’s not sold as a separate part so I’d have to replace the entire headlight at R4k fitted.
    I’m waiting to hear if the extended warranty will cover this but I highly doubt it.
    If I request that the dealership I bought the used vehicle from one month ago cover this cost would I be within my right or am I being cheeky?

    TIA

    ... you seem prepared to go to a lot
    of expense and effort to fit an accessory that is, to my knowledge, illegal and very often a nuisance to other road-users and campers ...
    May I ask why ? ... what motivates you to do this ? ... why do you want an LED bar and what will you use it for without being a nuisance to others ?
    To borrow your words what is the
    “constructive and positive” benefit ?

    Genuine question.

    The led bar is removed, I thought that was clear?
    The vehicle had two spots when I bought it, one was working so I replaced both with an led bar.
    Again I genuinely didn’t know it was illegal as I see plenty of vehicles with various types of lights fitted.
    I do quite a bit of fishing and we often camp over so we can be on the water early in the morning. The led bar was supposed to be used for some additional light around the camp site as well as for navigating rough roads around the fishing sites at night.

    Hope this clears things up

    As far as I am concern , any other road user is a nuisance specially at night , same with camping , but we are not alone on this earth . Drive thru a mountain pass at night in a area where wild animals roam free and you will see the” constructive and positive “benefit of bars and spots . This topic is about a mechanical problem , so let’s stick to the topic . The yes or no on extra lights on a vehicle is like 0 and X
