The mirror indicator bulb

I have removed the bulb, it looks OK to me and all clean inside the cover.
I think this is one of those bulbs you mustn't touch the Tail of, am I right?
If I needed a new bulb what is it ?

Good job I was careful as Terry told me to be because one of the screws decided to drop onto the mat I had laid down so therefore I found it easily.

I got so brave and confident I thought put it back and see if it works Can I start an apprentice repairs person at my age.

It's time for you to use a multi meter Jan. Then you can test all sorts of electrical things.


Your bulb may not be the same but it still has contacts.

If the bulb is OK you can use another video and see how to check for current to the socket the bulb fits in.

Brexiters. It's your sh1t now. Whatever happens nationally and internationally you own it. I wish you luck. I think you're going to need all you can get and then some. Friday 13th December 2019.

That's it. Watch the videos. It's a very useful tool.

I had watched it Alan, that was usually my job to hold the probs onto something if his fingers were too big, well that was his excuse, I think it was passive training really. The broken or blown bulb I knew about.

Have you thought of changing the bulbs over? left to right – right to left. That will give you an indication of where the fault might lie.
