Hi if these are the ones on eBay they are from a Bulgarian supplier. I bought some for my SE6A and they are fine. The originals on mine were dead and disintegrated when I removed them. These replacements are an easy fit once you cutaway the uprights in the aperture on the body. All bulbs are accessible from outside. The biggest plus for me is that they are so much brighter than std.

Hi. I've used the Bulgarian light clusters for a couple of years now. Untill now I've been quite satisfied, but lately the "glas" is getting very matt, and both have suddenly cracked without knowledge of any experience og how and why.
Has anyone had the same experience?
Any idea of what could be done to fresh them up?

Buy a spare set, at a tad over £12 it's the easy option, search peugot lights when you get to the sellers site, cheaper for some odd reason but the same thing

SE4c rebuilding. SE5a similar it seems!
