had a look at my 2006 sport tonight a friend lent me a detachable tow bar went to fit it but found I have no light sockets in the rear hidden panel
how easy is it to fit new ones and would be have to be a full rewire

Unfortunately RAVE doesn't cover the Sport so can't look in there. P38 has spare sockets ready to plug a trailer socket loom into, I would assume the Sport does as well. You'll be looking for unconnected sockets lurking behind the rear lights.

A quick check of the parts catalogue suggests you need YMZ500522 which is an expensive way of buying a 7 pin socket with wires and plugs to go into sockets that are already there (somewhere).....

hi Richard I've got two socket holes in the rear behind the cover so presume they both for the sockets I've been looking up and looks like I need a 7 pin and a 13 pin socket as connecting to a trailer with led lights make the sport electronics play up

You don't need both, just one or the other. 7 pin was standard for years but some caravans needed extras, like an ignition switched live and reversing lights so they went over to twin sockets. The 13 pin ones came much later as they include everything. If towing just a standard trailer all you need is 7 pin. That gives L and R sidelights, L and R indicators, brake lights, rear fogs and ground.
