Bump for this !
I have the tell-tale blown bulb warning on the dash
Tonight I have removed both rear bulb holders, cleaned all the connectors, cleaned and squeezed the pins in the plug.
Passenger side seems to have a decent connection but sidelights dont always come on when you turn the switch - until you give the cluster a thump on the outside
Drivers side has a bad earth that I cant seem to fix - the sidelight filament just glows lightly red with ignition on but the warning light goes out as soon as you turn the sidelights on
Are the bulb holders notoriously troublesome ?
I've done the connectors with wet & dry, bent the tabs where possible to ensure a good connection and blasted it with proper electrical contact cleaner and still no good.
Any mileage in changing the bulbs or should I just get a new pair of holders ?
