Renault Clio II - Fitting '01 rear lights to '99 How To

Hi all,

OK... I know that this is a very sad question.

I have been given a pair of standard rear light clusters (and bulb-holders) from a bloke in work who has fitted Lexus style rear-lights to his 2005 Clio 172 Sport.

I would like to put his old standard Clio rear-lights (you know the ones with the clear `circle` cut-out) on to my 99 (pre-facelift) Clio which has just the standard red rear light cluster.

So... I thought it would be a simple case of swapping over both the bulb holders and the light clusters and job done, but after doing exactly this, it looks like there is either a short in the bulb-holders, or the layout of the bulbs got changed between the Clio II and the facelifted model that came out in 2001.

So, could an owner of a 2001 (or newer) facelift model tell me exactly what order the bulbs should be in please? My guess is....

From top:
*---------- brake/tail --------------*
*---------- indicators -------------*
*-------- reverse lamps ---------*
*---------- fogs --------------------*

Sorry if this is a real noddy question.....
