Hmmm Rear light always on???

Noticed the other day that my rear passenger side brakelight/main beam is staying on (not at full capacity, just a dimmed glow).

I have changed the bulbs but as i know nothing about auto electrics was wondering if this is a common fault and if so how to repair as dont want the local garage try and pull me pants down over the price of repair.

Thanks very much guys

Re: Rear light always on???

Hi Dave

I had something similar on the 156 and it was the white plastic block inside the light cluster where the bulbs go - I found the bulbs never fitted properly and even with a brand new bulb it would fail to work to minute I put the light cluster back in - but I did notice when I twisted the bulb in incorrectly it would remain on but not as bright - try to see if it's in properly as if it was wiring both lights would be affected as it's the same circuit.

In my own example I bought a second hand light cluster from Alfaman £10 (who had loads) and used the plastic bulb housing from this - issue resolved.

Good luck
