    Rear Lights

    What bulbs do I need for the cluster - brake, reverse & indicator?

    After my light cluster went flying last week I fitted my new replacement light cluster but forgot to get the bulbs!

    Got it free from Audi as it was a safety issue. They should not fly off. My guess is that the previous owner had bulbs changed by Audi and they over-tightened the screw going into the cluster and cracked the plastic housing, then it was only a matter of time.

    As it was a safety issue you would think that they'd give you the bulbs as well.....after all, the cluster isn't much use without them. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img]

    I know, they dropped it off at my house yesterday so I got home and opened the box and only received the glassy bit. (Sorry if I'm too technical!)

    I did save the bulb housing alright - a bit of glue has it looking almost new - well maybe 2nd or 3rd hand anyhow. But I'm missing the bulbs they were all smashed when the unit disintegrated when it hit the road. So what bulbs do I buy this lunch time?
