Forum rules


When you put a new thread up in the Workshop please put your car's year and model in the thread title, along with just a brief indicator of the problem.

Car Year - Car Model: Brief description of issue. EXAMPLE- 1999 9-3. Problems starting when hot.

Please also add as much information as you can about the problem, to your post.

This will help us to help you, without having to ask basic details such as what car you have.


Threads with non-compliant titles will be moved to The Pit Lane (in which no replies can be posted, but the OP can edit the thread - upon which the thread will be released to the workshop forum)

Nb. Generic thread titles for truly generic issues that genuinely are not model or variant specific (such as "how do I change the spring in an forge wastegate actuator") are acceptable

**The first 5 posts for new users require individual moderator approval (which they will only get it if they are in line the rules of the forum). Please be patient and allow time for that to happen, and avoid duplicate postings.**

Eve of the MOT and checking the lights all work. All OK except the LH indicator tell-tale has suddenly failed. Having removed the dash underpanel I can see there is no way I can get a hand to it so the dash will have to come out which, having changed it about 6 months ago, I know is a bit of a job and has the potential of cracking. Just wanted to check there is nothing else likely to cause this (all indicators and hazards are working normally). MOT is booked for early tomorrow so will have to let it fail and then sort it with any other problems.

To finish this, apparently the tell tale not working is only an advisory for the MOT. Just not looking forward to taking it all apart again to replace a small bulb.

Once you have access why not install LEDs in both positions and have done with it?

May do as I now have time, just need to check the bulb type and get some green ones.
