ALL cruiser have them right next to the red reflector in the middle of the bumper. There's one on each side of the license plate.

You being from England, one of the back-up lamps might have been changed to a rear fog lamp in which case you shuld have one back-up lamp and one rear fog lamp.

Here's a picture from the United Kingdom PT Cruiser site. The back-up lamp is the one on the left of the bumper, the other side has the all red rear fog lamp. Both lamps also have the red reflector built into the lamp as required by law.

There should be from your neighborhood Chrysler dealer or you can check the U.K. eBay site or better yet a breakers yard otherwise known as a salvage yard here.

Here's a couple of them from the U.K. site but they want way too much for them. Check the breakers yard.

BTW: the replacement lights go on either side inwards or outwards, makes no difference.

yes as you say they are expensive from the USA, the shipping charge seems high? and it seems that all uk supplied cruisers have a red lens fitted ??? so UK breakers cannot supply these. would you be able to recommend a breakers over there who may be able to supply me.

NO, I no of no breakers (Salvage) yard they will ship overseas. Your way better off looking around your area for a junked PT that you could buy the lens from.

I'm not sure what all the PT's over in England came with but it shouldn't be a red lens on both sides. The law only expects one rear red fog light so the other should be white/clear for the reverse light.

i have looked at most sites over here and they all seem to have a red lens?? even the pic you posted has a red one lol maybe i will have to retrofit an auxiliary lamp and rewire it as the existing one gives no light especially as the rearward vision is not great when backing up in the dark. anyways thanks again for the help
