Help Re: Headlight Bulbs...

Hi, the front side headlights (are they called 'dimmers'?) on my 147 have gone (highlighted in red in picture) -

1. Are these lights tested during an MOT? Can an MOT be failed if they don't work?

2. What are their technical specifications and where is the best place to buy replacements? I really don't want to get them from Halfrauds!

Thanks for any help!

Re: Headlight Bulbs...

The bulb you highlight is the Front Fog lamp.

The Bulb for this is an "H1", and yes, you can buy them from ANY motor spares/accesories shop.

Be warned though... I replaced all of my front bulbs for the "Blue-White" ones, and the Front Fogs are a Reet Bugger to get back in.

The "Middle" and "Inner" bulbs are for Dipped and High beam respectively, and are "H7" bulbs.
