    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

    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
