3rd Brake light a nightmare
Im normally ok at this type of thing ....but the 3rd brake light has given me hassle today.
I bought 10 new bulbs from an autofactors. Tried to fit them but when i re assembled only one worked. Fiddled for a while and decided they are cheap cr** bulbs.(bought a sid elight bulb from this guy before that blew in 2 mins)
Went to Halfords. Bulbs still looked cheap and crap (the metal connectors)
Went to Allams Alfa Epsom and bought much better bulbs. Also met a very nice 147 drive who i chatted to for ages. He is gonna join up on the forum.
Got home stuck a brick on the brake pedal and pulled contacts out and fiddled until they all lit.
All in all took me half a day.
Anyone else found this job a bug**r?
