Your diagram shows the back wire should connect to wire marked M2635 or M2650 (depending which side you use) and the red one should go on the wire marked 222 or 221 (depending on which side you chose).

You can see the wire numbers printed on the wiring on your car at the rear clusters.

I guess you are going to scotchlok the wires together?.

Your diagram also shows the pin numbers on the plug to the rear clusters. You can see the black wire will go on the wire on pin 1 and the red would go on the wire that is in position 5 on either of the cluster plugs.

Hi mattdehat
Citroen C3 wiring diagram for rear cluster reversing lights
Citroen C3 wiring diagram for rear cluster reversing lights
Your diagram from the Haynes manual shows the reversing light power (+ve or 12v) is marked in black dot matrix ink on the Yellow (Jaune - Jn) wire '2200D'

For the earth, or -ve or 0v, use the Green and Yellow (Vert and Jaune - Vj) wire that is also marked 'M6230' printed on the wire.

This is the plug that is shown in the top diagram and my diagram cut out. You can even see the Green and Yellow (Vert and Jaune - Vj) wire

The answer you are looking for is here
diagram from the Haynes manual shows the reversing light power (+ve or 12v) is marked in black dot matrix ink on the Yellow (Jaune - Jn) wire '2200D'

For the earth, or -ve or 0v, use the Green and Yellow (Vert and Jaune - Vj) wire that is also marked 'M6230' printed on the wire.
Use google translate if you need to.

The colour codes are in the French language.


This is the diagram

This is the plug that has the wires on the diagram above
