An alternative for the original repeater lamp on 2cv, CX, C15 (and some Italian-spec DS, BX, Dyane, Ami etc).
Please choose the type you would like from the drop-down list:
- Orange lens with normal bulb, or
- Smoked lens with orange bulb.
- (Clear lens option is no longer available).
The price is for one lamp unit, (and a bulb), so if you want a pair, please order two.
The original 2CV/C15 repeater lamp (Citroën part number 5503138) has not been available for at least a couple of decades, so some people used to cut a larger hole in their wing and fit a later type C15 all-plastic lamp instead (as it looked similar externally) but those became unavailable a few years ago too.
So we now have an alternative:
Our repeater lamp fits in the original holes in the wing. It has a stainless ring, like the original. It is similar in size and from a distance it looks quite similar but it has a shape that, in our opinion, suits the cars better than the original.
The bulb is accessible from the back by simply pulling out the bulb-holder. It uses a capless ‘501’ bulb (supplied) which means that there is no need for an internal spring, so the common problem with the original repeater lamp’s spring corroding will not be an issue with our lamp.
For a 2cv, you will need to re-use the larger of the two rubbers from your original lamp, as this has a slightly curved surface to match the shape of the 2cv wing.
For a Visa or C15 up to 04/04/94, (Orga no 6356), this will fit the existing holes in the wing but for later models a plate will need to be fabricated to bridge the shaped hole, in order to mount this unit. (This can be as easy as drilling a couple of extra holes in a suitable large washer).
The price is for one lamp unit, (& includes a bulb), so if you need a pair please order two.

Great value for a day to day car, fit well, description is spot on, they do flex when doing up have to be careful don’t over tighten, I used socket in my hand only, lens slightly loose when tight but doesn’t come out, Sure you can crimp ring if bothered.
