    You need 10?! What on earth for? I thought there were only about 6.

    Regardless, are they all dead?

    Im trying to solve the problem of my brake warning light on my dis being on all the time. ive changed both bulb holders and all the bulbs and its still on.Some one else on here had the same problem and changed the 3rd brake light bulbs and this sorted the problem out. No of the little bulbs are blown but look black inside and have a sort of chrome look to the top of them so i think it might be worth a try !!

    Possibly one ore more of the bulbs has gone high resistance.
