Hi All,

No wing mounted indicator repeater either. MOT testers also like the Fog light to work on the offside, so you have to run a link cable from the nearside light fitting.

Hi Cabrioot,

The part is the same as shown in the picture above (3) its the same part as used on current BMW's.
To change it on a Z1 you have to seperate the gearbox and torque tube to gain access to the drive shaft and joint inside.
