    What are the correct tail light bulbs for a 54 reg A3?

    Hi everyone,

    May seem I really simpleton question however I'm having a nightmare trying to find the correct tail light bulb for my 54 reg A3.

    Looking at Halfords and online some quote the '380' which is wrong as thats a dual filament stop and tail light of which I don't have as the brake and tail light are seperate.

    Then comes the 245 and 245s but these don't work or keep blowing?

    I can't for the life of me find the correct bulb....please help

    This is what you want - a 10w BA15s

    The originals have a "dome" glass envelope instead of a sphere and you can buy dome shaped replacements if you want, but the ordinary sphere bulbs fit just fine.
    I've replaced both of mine when one blew recently and they've been fine.

    Make sure you get the 10w version though....

    Here's an advert showing the "tubular" version that's standard fit.....
