    Thumbs up All of the lights!

    Hi fourm
    i have noticed that over the past few days my side repeater on the passenger side seems to be less brighter a lot less this is intermittent I have took some pics to show you all other repeaters are fine and I don't think there is a bulb error but can't tell 100% as I need to reset my oil light as it got changed 1k eirly and I don't have time to nip back the garbage to get it turned off.

    Didnt wanna attemp to turn the light off I case I wipe the full service one by a incident that's due in 10k

    Broken one not very bright

    Front view broken

    side view flicker

    Brighter drivers side

    Front view drivers side working


    Any help would be great

    There may be a crack in the strip stopping the light shining all the way through, its just 1 LED in there so if that was faulty then it would not work at all.

    have a close look to see if there are any hair line cracks in it.

    if not then you would need to get a new indicator part, it comes built into the strip so you would replace the whole thing.

    the cost is around £27+vat from the stealers so not cheap

    advantage being the indicator swap is a piece of cake, perhaps time to think of led upgrades, i see no reason why you cant replace the smd's on the indicators
