Post

I have just replaced the LCD clock in my dashboard, I now can see the time Yay!
But………..
 When I was putting the dash back in I saw the bulb in the multi plug for the light switch was blown, it appears to come complete with its holder. What is this bulb called and where can i get one? Cheers.

I found one at a motor factors, I took the bulb in and they found one.
Yes it's a complete thing with the bulb and holder with electrical connections.

The light in the headlight switch is on all the time when the ignition on so I did find the bulb did blow again after a couple of years and still not around to fitting a new one as I can always seem to find the headlight switch in the dark.  :lol:

The trouble with doing nothing is that you never know when you are finished.
