Would I be right in saying that these dont fit straight onto a hatch?

What would I need to do to them to make them fit my SRi hatch?

Got a set possibly comming off ebay, smoked rears should look cool with the black :D

Will they?

I dont want to be dealing with any bad fitting, and when SI tried to fit his they cracked as he screwed them in.

I know they can be fitted, I just thought you had to chop a bit off somewhere to do so

Maybe Im going stark raving mad :eh

I put turbo lights into my 2.0l hatch

Correct they dont fit straight away.

The coloured part does but you have to trim the bulb holder part, each car is different so some my need a bit off the top others the bottom, you get the gist..

BUT do a little bit at a time as once you go to far thats it.

If your still stuck pls let me know

I fitted a set of saloon rear lights to a hatch, and they went straight on, no messing about or anything. Guess I was just lucky?

Trim the bottom lip off.

I didn't and funked my first set. Was more carful with the second set, they don't quite sit flush with the back of the car, but are sealed. One day I may get round to taking them off and trimming them...
