Hello, I hope I can offer you some assistance.

Do you mean do the latest Transit mirrors fit the 2008 van? Or you need to wire some indicators in?

Let me know and I'll reply as soon as I'm able to.

Thank you.

Hello again,

unfortunately the new model Transit mirrors won't fit the previous model, the fixing points are completely different, the new model Transit mirror fixes to the door but the previous model fixes to the body.

The best and cheapest option would be to fit an aftermarket LED indicator to your existing mirrors you can then extend the wiring from the original wing repeater to the new LED. An example of the LED type you can fit is at http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Raised-LED-indicators-fairing-mount-alloy-case-indicators-clear-lens-black-case-/161312086321?pt=UK_Motorcycle_Parts&hash=item258ef31931

the finished mirror is shown below.

I hope this helps but if I can assist further let me know and I'll reply as soon as I can.

Best wishes,

Sean.
