Auto lights retrofit

One for the GS and commercial owners out there. Massive thanks to Beanie to help me source correct parts Bow down Thumbs Up

I am looking to update the front bumper to have fogs and parking and I realised the switch pack that I had bought had the option for auto lights too - and as it was there I wanted it to work!


I got a smash to the windscreen so took the opportunity to get LR to order in the high spec windscreen - its the one with the rain sensor on their system Rolling Eyes .

Parts needed:
Headlight Switch
Mirror with auto sensor connection and with cover to hold rain sensor and cover wires
Rain sensor / light sensor
New windscreen

Before windscreen fitted:
For the headlight switch replacement you just need a sharp pull on the trim to unclip which to allow you to swap over the switch (the piece on top of the dash on pic below and ignore all the other goings on!)


Make sure you have the loom in the headliner - its the black one and grey/red ones you need. There is a nib in the headliner that you can feed these through easily





Old windscreen with loom connections pulled through


New windscreen - note connections for mirror and sensor


Finished effort - took fitter less than 1 hour to fit this morning and auto lights working fine - will ccf rain sensors to be on too to see if that works
