Suspect that this has been asked before, Does anyone know what the correct size is for the front spot lamps on a mk3 .
Cheers Allan.

According to this they are 6 inch diameter https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/362166838925

Pretty much a similar size that was on XR2/XR3i etc.

Unless you meant these https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Ford-Capri-M ... 100623.m-1

Would think they are 6 inch too.

Hi,
some time ago I tried to find correct size of fog lamps for Mk3. I don't have anything exact, but if I'm right, there were two sizes of fog lamps.
Smaller on early Mk3's, like on this 1981 2.8i:

On later Mk3's it was little bigger, like on this 280:

Smaller are probably like Hella Comet 450 and bigger like Hella Comet 550.

Any idea what these are off then or has someone just stuck Ford stickers on them? Bought them new a few years ago off eBay.

There is not original Ford connector, so probably not original, but I'm just guessing.

Think it's a h3 bulb connector. You may be right though

Yeah, it's also possible. I didn't think of that. ;-)
