Took delivery of the below today....

Fitted it....doesn’t work? Could be a dud but before I throw it in the bin, I thought I’d ask.

Do I need to do any coding? Could someone recommend a better option for a tinted version

No I know your not the first one to have this issue. Return it and get a refund. Try the van x one. No issues or get window tint like I did mine.

Haha that’s my favourite saying....couldn’t agree more

The van x one...is it just a lens for the original or a complete unit?

Yes mate just a lense. I found it was to dark for a white van. But think it’s ok on a silver van.

I bought one of these off ebay to replace a cracked original one, it only lasted a few week I fell to bits with the constant closing of the door, the seal also let water into the door, total rubbish in my opinion
