Re: 156 Sidelight bulb change
Last time I couldn't extract it. It flopped axially but would not budge backwards. Ended up in a Dealer. Less than a year later and the same bulb blew!
Down to Halfords for £4.99 but in bright sunlight less than 10 Minutes needed. Just eased out with no pressure. No wires needing detaching, no blood and clear vision through the lens as the bulb was re-seated.
Really annoyed that it blew because I'm so careful with turning them on and off without the ignition intervening. This one went after refuelling. Engine started and back to idle, seat belt on, select 1st.. then the lights and bang - lights warning light. Got out to look at the number plate but it was as I feared.
