Important things to note:

Laying cables in between and underneath bricks

Cables can fit in between and underneath LEGO® bricks, plates, and tiles providing they are laid correctly between the LEGO® studs. Do NOT forcefully join LEGO® together around cables; instead ensure they are laying comfortably in between each stud.

CAUTION: Forcing LEGO® to connect over a cable can result in damaging the cable and light.

Connecting cable connectors to Expansion Boards

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports of Expansion Boards. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the expansion board facing up, look for the soldered “=” symbol on the left side of the port. The connector side with the wires exposed should be facing toward the soldered “=” symbol as you insert into the port. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, do not force it.

Incorrectly inserting the connector can can result in bent pins inside the port or possible overheating of the expansion board when connected.

Connecting cable connectors to Strip Lights

Take extra care when inserting connectors to ports on the Strip Lights. Connectors can be inserted only one way. With the Strip Light facing up, ensure the side of the connector with the wires exposed is facing down. If a plug won’t fit easily into a port connector, don’t force it. Doing so will damage the plug and the connector.

Installing Bit Lights under LEGO® bricks and plates.

When installing Bit Lights under LEGO® pieces, ensure they are placed the correct way up (Yellow LED component exposed). You can either place them directly on top of LEGO® studs or in between.

 


OK, Let’s Begin!


Lighting up the Truck

1.) The first thing we will do is light up the truck. First take this vehicle and remove the following pieces from the front, then disassemble as per below:

 

 

2.) Take a White 15cm Bit Light and thread the connector side of the cable through the front of the light grey technic pin. Thread it all the way through, then carefully bend the Bit Light on a 90 degree angle so that it is sitting flat against the edge of the pin. Take a provided Trans Clear Round Plate 1×1 and connect it over the top.

 

Repeat this step to install another White 15cm Bit Light to the other technic pin, securing it in place using another provided Trans Clear Round Plate 1×1.

 

 

3.) Remove the following sections from the front of the truck,then thread one of the Bit Light cables through the front of the below piece allowing you to reconnect the left headlight.

 

Disconnect the wheel, then reconnect the left headlight section ensuring the cable is passed through over the wheel axis, before reconnecting the wheel over the top.

 

 

4.) Repeat previous step to reconnect the right headlight to the truck then reconnect the remaining sections we removed earlier.

 

 

5.) Turn the truck around and disconnect the back section as well as rear right wheel, then thread the cable from the right headlight up the space in front of the rear right wheel (which leads to the back of the truck). Ensure the cable is pulled up inside the black side rail as per below images.

 

Repeat this process to thread the cable from the left headlight up the space in front of the left rear wheel.

 

 

6.) Take out the Micro Battery Pack and pull out and discard the clear tag to activate the batteries. Connect the two cables to the bottom ports (ensuring the battery switch side is facing up), then turn the battery pack ON to verify the headlights are working OK.

 

 

7.) Disconnect the two trans red tiles from the back panel, then take a White 15cm Bit Light and with the cable facing toward the centre, place it over the right stud as shown below. Secure the Bit Light in place by connecting a provided Trans Red Round Plate 1×1 over the top.

 

Repeat this process to install another White 15cm Bit Light to the left side, securing it in place using another provided Trans Red Round Plate 1×1. Reconnect this panel back to the truck ensuring both cables are laid in between studs underneath.

 

 

8.) Remove the rear left wheel then thread the left tail light cable up the space in front of the left wheel axis and pull it up from the top on the inside of the black bars (same way we did for the headlight cables).

 

Reconnect the wheel, then connect the cable to the next port along the micro battery pack.

 

Repeat this process to thread the right tail light cable up to the top and connect it to the next port on the Micro Battery Pack.

 

 

9.) Neaten up excess cables by grouping them all together and twisting/folding them around each other a few times. Tuck the bunched up cables underneath the battery pack then lower the hook section so that it secures the battery pack in place.

 

 

This completes installation of the lights for the Corner Garage Truck. Turn ON the battery pack to test the tail lights are working OK.

 

 


Lighting up the Corner Garage
