    Hi All,
    Posted on here about the constant brake light warning ,after swapping every rear bulb twice,
    wiring checks I was at a loss ,even swapped out the monitoring relay,
    I went to the local breakers (which is in Poole Trents) and the have 2 avants in atm, and about 4 other asst B5's
    I removed a high level brake light and swapped with my old and despite having only 3 bulbs working didn't flag the warning light.
    for the first time since the beginning of December I have no beeps or bulb out warning.
    I replaced the remaining bulb with my now burdening collection and all is good .

    I have the old brake light if any one wants to change these or practice soldiering LED and 2 spare monitoring relays if any body wants them as well as 2 rear Audi mud flaps from a B6 that won't fit my Avant properly ( well they were there and only a £1 so had to remove them )

    I also managed to get 3 new hard plastic lower door trims ,I will keep an eye out and collect these as they come in in case any one else wants them ,the breakers charge about £3 each .

    weldone on the fix.
    I hate that beeping on start up.
    Really annoying.

    How often do you go back the breakers?
    Can you remember what the B5s had on them?

    Double din, dimming mirror? :)

    presumably the wedge bulbs you were using to replace the blown ones were of the wrong wattage then?
