Re: Reflective tape - MOT Legal

Thanks Paul.

I've still got my old lights which have the reflectors built in, so I may just decide to swap them back over - it only takes 5 mins per side. Mind you I did that last year with my LED sidelight bulbs and never got around to putting them back in after the MOT !

Your right about the reflectors on the black bit of the lower bumper on the later model Mondeo mk 3's, and thats where I'd put the reflective tape.

I did enquire from a Mondeo breaker on ebay about the lower valance with the reflectors built in and he came back to me with a price of 48.90 He's sellling the ones without reflectors (which is the only difference) for just shy of 32...

I rang Ford to try and get the reflectors on their own. He wanted a Registration number, to which I said mine wouldnt help as it doesnt have them. He wouldnt give me a price without a reg number.
