Yet another sidelight thread...

Hi All - I have just spent a happy hour searching the forum and reading old threads on the subject but none appear to relate to exactly what I am having at the moment:

05 GT Jtd NOT Xenons - dash states Right Sidelight Failure - so of to Halfrauds I go, no joy they are out of the desired bulb. Popped to the main dealership who were very friendly and gave me a bulb gratis - christmas spirit.

Changed the bulb and fault is still there - now, when looking at the bulb, on ignition, it fires up brightly, then slowly dims itself down to a faint glow - whats that all about?

To top it all off, the bulb is also now stuck in its bayonet holder - I can get the bub holder out of the light assembly easily enough but cant actually get the bulb out of the bayonet holder. Is this related to the fault and the dimming bulb or is this two seperate issues?

All help appreciated
