Parking Pole on LHD Civic

This is if you want to mount your super sweet JDM yo parking pole on the passenger’s side for a LHD Civic. This way the pole can actually be of use and not be just a JDM goodie.

This DIY is done with an EG switch (up and down toggle switch) and an EG pole.

Suggested Tools:
-Dremel
-Soldering Iron
-Heat Shrink Tubing
-Screw Drivers
-Safety Glasses

Wiring:
The pole will have 4 wires coming from it:
Yellow/Red – connect to Yellow/Red on Switch
Yellow/White – connect to Yellow/White on Switch
Red – connect to Red wire on Parking Light
Black – connect to Black wire on Parking Light

The switch will have 4 wires coming from it:
Yellow/Green - connect to ignition +12 volts
Black – connect to ground
Yellow/White – connect to Yellow/White on Pole
Yellow/Red - connect to Yellow/White on Pole

If you get a used pole you’ll probably have to extend the wiring. Properly solder and shrink tube the connections.

Modifications:
Since the mounting bracket is set up for a RHD vehicle you’ll have to bend it the opposite of how it is currently bent. Keep the same angle.

Now, I tried a bunch of different ways of mounting the pole (that’s why there a ton of holes in it). It seemed that the best way was the use all the original holes. I also cut the bracket and bent the edge a little for better fitment.

If your pole didn’t come with the security nut that mounts on top on the bumper you can make one. Here’s the one I had to make. I found a hard plastic grommet and used a dremel to get it to the right size. For structural integrity, I used epoxy to fill the voids. Also, not pictured, I cut two notches on the top for installation and removal.
