Mr Fluffy Gets Technical

Just turned Dickie’s ignition on to take a mileage reading and reset the trip to zero and a warning light came on. A quick look through the manual reveals that this is the 'bulb failure' warning. Checked all the lights and they seemed OK. Testing the brake lights was more of a problem on my own but I eventually discovered that my glasses case would wedge nicely above the pedal and hold the brakes on. A whiz around the back of the vehicle (before the improvised wedge slipped out) revealed the problem. The off-side brake bulb had blown. I removed the lens and old bulb and discovered that the fitting was quite corroded. A quick clean of all the lamp contacts with fine glass paper worked a treat and may prevent problems ahead.
