I have 90 but the same rules apply I think. UK law requires the tail lights, brake lights and indicators to be visible from certain angles from the rear at all times and the high mounted lights on the wings can be obscured when the door is open, or completely blocked if you have the spare tyre mounted on the door. That's why all manufacturers fit the lower lights in the bumpers.

Many owners fit bulb holders and bulbs in the upper lights (they are usually blanked off) but it is important to retain the bumper ones for the above reason. It used to be illegal to have more than two brake lights (excluding the high mounted centre one) but I see hundreds of buses with more than two so I'm guessing the law has been relaxed (or just ignored) on that.

It also explains why the bumper mounted lights are such nasty rubbish that collect road spray and fall to bits. They are an afterthought done as cheaply as possible just for the UK.

Yes I did think about swapping my rear bumper and upper lights, but replacement lower units are cheap enough...

I would say I have seem numerous different configurations of the main rear lights - clear clear red - red clear red - amber clear red etc

As i understand it, if the spare wheel is tailgate mounted, then side/tail and indicators are in the bumper lights, stop and reversing are in the upper clusters.

I'm sure when i looked there seemed to be some unused bulbs and holders in the upper cluster, but that was 18 months or so ago when i fitted some new reversing bulbs and could be my hopeless memory playing tricks.
