Front Indicators & Side Lights
What You Need To Know About Indicators And Side Lights.

What are the different indicators available?
As previously stated indicators are used to show other vehicles where you intend to turn etc. Our website stocks a large variety for all different vehicles. If you require replacement you may be unaware of the different colour lenses available; most commonly being amber or clear. For the clear lens there will be a need for an orange bulb or a bulb which will emit an or
ange colour when in use. For the amber lens this allows for the use of clear bulbs, as the lens is already coloured.
Some vehicles may have LED indicators, this is a light emitting diode. Which is different to the standard bulb. The LED allows for lower energy consumption and longer life than standard bulbs. The product/part specification on the website will state whether the part is non-LED or LED. If you are unsure of which your vehicle has refer to the ‘find your vehicle’ which may refine the options further. If you vehicle stocks both LED and non-LED, you can speak to a member of the Ultimate Styling team who will be happy to assist.
On the dashboard of the car there may be an indicator malfunction light to indicate there is an issue with the vehicles indicator. This will notify the vehicle driver by the arrow light flashing faster than usual.
