Alfa GT Number Plate Light Failure
last week, ice rained from the sky here and the hail was as big as an apricot. It damaged the whole car sans the bumpers. The insurance will cover that completely and pay for fixing and complete repaint. My problem lies elsewhere.
A couple of days after the flood/hail, I got in the car for the first time since and immediately was greeted by the "number plate bulb failure" light. The number plate light is indeed - not working. At first I though that the water level went up to the bumper and somehow flooded it. Then I looked around the forum and noticed several people mentioning a connection under the right bumper somewhere that controls the number plate light, the reversing light and the fog light. Today, I did some experimenting and noticed that the reverse light is also not working. The fog light is working though.
I have still not checked the bulbs, but what are the odds of 3 bulbs going out at the same time immediately after a huge hail? The hail was hitting the car from the right side mainly. Can it have damaged (messed up) that connector under the bumper? I could not see a clear guide on how to disconnect it or the exact location and ways of accessing this said connector.
I looked through the eLearn, but such element is not even in the diagram for the number plate lights. What needs to be disassembled in order to get to it so I can check if everything is fine?
