As title if you remove side repeaters are you required to fit new ones for mot etc ?
MOT Testers Manual
That's a weird way of writing the regulation - never knew it was written like that.
I always thought it was that an indicator needed to be visible from any angle around the car (at a certain distance) - normally achived by a side repeater, but not necessarily if the indicators are on the corners. The quoted wording seems to leave the opportunity for a blind spot.
Why does it. The wraparound lens will make the light visible from the side of the car.
Why would you remove them?
On your car you are not allowed to remove them in the first place. So obviously if you go down that route you will fail the MOT. Worse still, think of the consequences in the event of an accident, what would your insurance company say?
It could be, for example, that rusty UK spec wings are replaced with German spec ones.
If you are planning to remove the wing repeaters and then fit door mirrors with built-in indicators then that's fine.
with a W208 you will definately need some kind of side repeaters...
What would your insurance say about any non factory items on your car which haven't been declared in the event of an accident?
