Default Non VW towdar wiring, Peugeot 208?

Just fitted a towbar to the daily, a Peugeot 208 15 reg. I need to wire it for a basic tip-run trailer so 7 pin plug, no reverse or fog lights etc.

Looking at the rear light wiring one the boot there are stickers in place implying that you can't simply Scotchlock onto them like back in the day. I'm thinking it'll need one of those little by pass relay things wiring in? Is it that simple or am I setting myself up for failure? TIA.

Dave, I think the scotchlocking method was OK back in the day as you have said but modern wiring is a different thing altogether. I would seek some proper auto electrician advice before touching it as it could turn out to be rather costly.
