Okay folks, I've taken some snaps to show how to fit your own Zele 4 light kit.

Tools required : 1 x flat head screwdriver (approx 5 mm width)

Time to install : Expert 10 mins, Cack-handed idiot 10 mins.........

1. Open your boot.

2. The central plastic cover at the rear of the boot has 4 plugs with loops on them, and a smaller central one without a loop.



Picture shows red circled large plugs, yellow shows central small one.

3. Each plug has 2 slots on the side into which a screwdriver fits.



3. Use a small screwdriver and pop it into each plug and twist. This causes the top of the plug to pop up. Just pull them out one by one.



4. When you've got all 5 out, the top of the plastic cover is held on the metalwork with simple clips. Just pull the cover out from the bottom first then put you fingers under top part and pop the cover upwards.




5. Lift the cover out of your boot.

6. On both sides of this cover there are 2 carpet like flaps which you can just put your hand under and the connectors are just there, attached to the rear metal.








7. Just unplug those and plug in the Zele kit.

8. I attached the short cable on the left, then ran the longer wire thru the holes in the rear metalwork (to save using tape) and across to the Right hand side.

9. The connectors have a clip on top which needs to be depressed before you can unplug them.

10 Attach the Zele box with some velcro/sticky pads, flick the switch to the 4 light marker and ALWAYS check it works before putting everything back together. When reassembling, start by putting the clips on the uppermost part of the cover in first.

11. When putting the plugs back in you'll find it easier to pull out the centre pin of the plugs (see below), then just pop the plugs back in once you've got the plastic cover back in place.




And voila!

4 lights on braking, yummy!

You're all very welcome fellas. I'm feeling kinda guilty for not installing my reverse camera myself and sharing the install with you all, so this is going a little towards making amends!

BTW, it only took me about 10 mins to pop out and takes those piccies so it really is that easy and fast.

The only hard bit is disconnecting the connectors. The clip on top of them is very stiff and a PITA!

Do this kit light up the wing brake light even when not braking as discussed in the other thread? There was some talk about wiring it in differently to make it work like the USDM models or something.

Wired correctly (i.e. as shipped) it will not light up the wing... the only change is that all 4 lights are on when headlights are on. Inside lights still light brighter (together with wing) on braking. See the NewEra website for pictures that illustrate this behaviour...

Excellent, thank you. The connectors were fiddly. The clear strips on the rear side panels always were reflectors not indicators on UK spec cars.

Thank you charles c

May I take your guide and post it in our germans GT-R Forum? That would help them also, because the next 10 tail light sets are hopefully arriving soon.

Regards Alex

just so we are clear

if you fit this mod, then your GTR's will be non standard, therefore any performance superiority over Porkers won't be fair

Have you managed to fit yours yet Zed?! Or are you committed to keeping your car standard? :)
