Peugeot Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, I hope the following assists you. The headlights must be replaced with right hand drive lamps, any lights that have a lever (only usually HID) only blank the kick up of the beam so are not a permanent fix and are only for temporary continental driving, masks and beam converters aren't allowed the lights must be changed. You can use an overlay on the speedometer if one is available but it must be visible in darkness as the normal KMH speedometer would be. Don't forget the rear fog lamp will need to be changed if the van doesn't have one on the right of the center line of the van. A good guide is https://www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/277534/guide-to-the-iva-scheme.pdf I hope this helps but if I can assist further let me know and I'll reply as soon as I'm able to. Best wishes, Sean.
Thanks for confirming that. I wasn't sure as I had been told there was a lever. The thing we really weren't sure about was the overlay and whether that would be acceptable.
We had remembered about the fog lamp tho.
We thought all we had to do was go into the local dealership but I think I knew more than they did.
Aleady rated the question and answer - very good service.
Thanks have it all sorted now. I have left a rating for you already.
It was good to have you confirm what I already thought.
You can use an overlay for the speedo but it needs to be fitted by specialist as you need to have a letter from them on headed notepaper clearly stating all that has been done. The headlights/fog light are the same- You need documentation clearly stating all the steps taken to ensure UK specification.
Our van was made tor the european market so as no certificate of conformity we needed to obtain a commission notice letter from Peugeot. This is then sent to the Vehicle Certification agency together with the original registration document, the original letters from the garages/installers ( oh and the fee) who then give you a Mutual Recognition Certificate.
Nearly there, when you get that back you complete the form for the DVLA and send it with this certificate, original MOT (done on VIN no) and insurance and another fee ,and hopefully all going well, we then get a registration number.
Hope thats of help to someone else.
