HC Indicator box

Postby steff » Mon Mar 27, 2017 12:44 pm

So getting the electrics all working before MOT

N/S indicator won't function, took the full box unit out, wired a separate earth, still nothing, tried mving the bulb and it comes on, but only if you hold the bulb in place.
The spring at the back of the bulb holder has gone and the slots to hold the bulb down have worn away.

So has anyone replaced the bulb holder? or am I looking for a second hand complete indicator box?

Cheers

When I said there are loads about for some reason I was assuming rear light cluster :oops:
Front indicator may be a bit more tricky :wink:
