A reference offer for the electrical circuit and lighting of the Mehari
Unlike the 2CV, which had models powered by 6 V and others powered by 12 V, the electrical system of all Mehari
cars operates with a 12 V power supply, a voltage that characterises the vast majority of combustion engine cars designed from the 1960s to the present day. This somewhat simplifies the range of parts and accessories dedicated to the lighting and electrical system of the Mehari. This car has nevertheless undergone some changes, notably in its front end and dashboard
, resulting in two generations of electric wiring looms, but also in the front lights (headlight + casing) and indicator lens, the round front indicator similar to the rear ones from earlier models being replaced by a rectangular lens from 1978. Interestingly, the round headlights
of the Mehari are the same as those of the Dyane, with which it shares many other spare parts, their characteristic square shape is in fact given to them by the addition of a rectangular headlight surround. The Meharis of the limited series Azur have a specific headlight surround, as do the Mehari U.S., of which only a very small number were produced, and whose headlight surround is round. On the other hand, there was little change in the rear lights, with only the Mehari 4x4 having a specific rear light design. All these car parts and a hundred others are sold in this section Mehari electricity and lighting.
Windscreen wipers powered by an electric motor have their own page
in the "Peripherals" section. Spare parts for the engine's electrical supply, such as ignition, coils, spark plugs
or alternators for example, are presented in our Mehari engine section.
Benefit from high-performance lighting
In terms of lighting quality, you have 2 options with our online spare parts catalogue. First of all, you can choose filament bulbs and scrupulously respect the original models. You can also adopt the latest generation of LED lighting
for greater efficiency and therefore safety. They boast many advantages: a much higher intensity than filament bulbs, a more concentrated and controlled light flow so as not to blind other drivers, while offering extremely low power consumption and maximum longevity. Even though these products are more expensive to buy, they represent a profitable investment over time. Here you will find our LED range and technical sheet
(in French) to help you easily install all these accessories on your car.
A foolproof electrical system
Even if you are never safe from a malfunction, in cars as elsewhere, prevention is better than cure. So don't hesitate to do a few checks from time to time. First of all, make sure every 5,000 km that the electrolyte level of your battery is sufficient, i.e. that the electrolyte covers the lead plates well and add demineralised water if necessary before recharging. You may also need to change a part such as a light, a button or a switch on your dashboard or to connect a new wiring loom. Don't worry, you'll find all the information you need in our technical sheets
dedicated, among other things, to the electrical system of your Mehari. If you have more specific questions, contact our teams or visit our expert forum dedicated to Mehari electrical equipment.
