C5 X7 n/s front indicator bulb holder wanted.

Post by Peter.N. »

My indicator is intermittent, if you pull the bulb away from the holder it comes on, let it go and it goes off. I don't think I can get the bulb out without breaking it and I don't suppose I can get a new one as its part of the loom but if I could snip the wire leaving the bulb holder on I could just join the wires.

If you can't find one just solder the wires on to the bulb. :)

Had crossed my mind Gibbo but the holder seems to be falling apart, just plastic disintegration. Cant understand what has caused the problem its as dry as a bone under there. I suspect I will break the bulb trying to get it out. I cant seem to be able to disconnect either of the cables both stuck tight, otherwise I could get the whole assembly out and get it on the bench, I have squirted some penetrating oil on it. Thanks for the suggestion anyway.
