Brera Lamp changing: A Cautionary Tale.

This AM was a nice sunny morning,
so I thought I'd put those nice bright
blue philips bulbs in. 5 minute job, I thought.

LHS cover needed some manoevering,
got the electrical connector off,
unclip the metal retaining clip...


off it flew never to be seen again.
Spent a good hour trying to catch a glimpse
of it. Must be on the sump guard somewhere.
But it's gone.


So I spent the rest of the day trying to find
something similar to keep my headlamp
bulb in. Final had to make something from scratch.

Does anywhere actual sell those spring clips!?

Why aren't they bloody attached to the headlights!?!

So, if you're changing bulbs on a 159/Brera
watch out!

Dang. That really sucks.

btw - How are the new blue lights. Improvement? How much?

Didn't fry your electricals either, I take it?

Just Philips BlueVision H7 lamps.

I found them work better on the 147
so fitted them again.

Wouldn't say the light was brighter, just
bluer. (I think it's more a psychological
improvement than anything else.)
