2001 C5 estate rear bulbs parts request

Post by jamescarruthers »

I noticed when I was behind my sister’s C5 last month that one side of the brake and normal rear bulbs are different brightnesses to the other. She asked Halfords to change one for her when it blew and apparently the idiot really struggled with them.

Anyway, I plan on turning up at Christmas and replacing them all as I’m pretty sure it’s just some wrong bulbs in it.

From what I can work out online, I think it takes 380 P21/5W and 501 W5W. Can anyone tell me the quantity I will need, please?

Also, is access really difficult or was the Halfords guy just unskilled?

Is there a PDF scan of the owner’s manual knocking about, it would be good to take a look before I get up there.

Fantastic, thanks for the quick response! I’m off to buy the bulbs now and then blast the C6 250 miles to the frozen north.

Apparently the Halfords man looked like he was going to snap the C5’s lights in half so I’m a bit scared as to what I might find when I get there.
